The President's Message
Jason R. Urso
CT Chapter of ASHRAE Members,
I would like to start off by thanking our Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) Committee, Kevin Wixom, Evan Benoit, and Brian Messerschmidt, for hosting an ax throwing event at Montana Nights in Newington. We had a fun group of people attend and everyone had a great time. If you’ve never had the opportunity to throw an ax at a target, I highly recommend it! If you haven’t had a chance to attend one of our social events, I hope that you can before the end of the ASHRAE season (June). I promise that you will meet a great group of individuals and have a great time. Expanding your network is
The Winter Conference in Orlando, FL started off a bit dreary, but within a couple days the sunshine and nice weather arrived. I personally enjoy attending both the Winter and Summer Conferences. They are jam packed with technical sessions, tours, social events, committee meetings (Technical, Standing, and Standards), ALI courses, and much more. This year the Plenary keynote speaker was Ed Hochuli, a retired head referee in the NFL. Did you know he was also a trial attorney and owned his own law firm concurrently? His message was that any “average Joe” can be successful and provided his insight on how.
I hope you can join us for our next meeting!

Your ASHRAE History Report...
In the 1930's, Carrier air-conditioned train cars introduced commuters to climate-controlled comfort on long-distance trips and short work commutes. It wasn't until the 1970's that air conditioning became the norm in automobiles.
How do you like to commute to work? Check out the 2019 ASHRAE HVAC Applications handbook for guidance on how these systems are designed and implimented!
HVAC APPLICATIONS: Chapter 12
This chapter describes air-conditioning and heating systems for buses, rail cars, and fixed-guideway vehicles that transport large numbers of people, often in crowded conditions. Air-conditioning systems for these vehicles generally use commercial components, but are packaged specifically for each application, often integral with the styling. Weight, envelope, power consumption, maintainability, and reliability are important factors. Power sources may be electrical (ac or dc), engine crankshaft, compressed air, or hydraulic. These sources are often limited, variable, and interruptible. Characteristics specific to each application are discussed in the following sections. Design aspects common to all mass-transit HVAC systems include passenger comfort (ventilation, thermal comfort, air quality, expectation) and thermal load analysis.

Putting the "R" in ASHRAE
ASHRAE was formed as the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers by the 1959 merger of American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHAE) founded in 1894 and the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers (ASRE) founded in 1904. With refrigeration literally in its name, ASHRAE offers a wide selection of information and publications concerning refrigeration and refrigerants - from standards and design guides to ASHRAE courses to a monthly column in the ASHRAE Journal, and more.
Want to know more? Check out the ASHRAE Refrigeration page HERE.
A lot of the resources focus on refrigerants themselves, but there are also courses and information on applications of refrigeration; Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) System Design, Refrigeration Cycle Fundamentals, and others.
Little known Refrigeration Awards...
The Milton W. Garland Commemorative Refrigeration Award for Project Excellence. This award can be best described as any use of mechanical refrigeration machinery for application other than human comfort. In general, this will be for food processing and preservation as well as industrial applications. It could also apply to refrigeration used in manufacturing processes, life support in extreme environments, recreational facilities, or other non-comfort cooling applications. The award shall be made to both the designer and the owner of a non-comfort cooling refrigeration application that incorporates new technology in a unique manner.
If you have a project you think is a good candidate, don’t hesitate to nominate it! Contact [email protected] if you need assistance or more information.
Details on each award can be found HERE.
Last, we are looking to increase the exposure that refrigeration gets at the CT level, and are looking for help. If you know of any contacts that could help us find possible presenters for refrigeration themed monthly meetings or tours, or if you have any other suggestions for the refrigeration committee, let us know by e-mail: [email protected]

2020 ASHRAE Winter Conference
Orlando, fl February 1-5, 2020
This year’s ASHRAE Winter Conference and AHR Expo both boasted notable attendance and participation.
More than 3,200 people registered for the 2018 ASHRAE Winter Conference—making it one of the largest in ASHRAE’s history.
The 2018 AHR Expo was a record-breaker that snapped four records: attendance, exhibit space, number of exhibitors and number of international exhibitors. More than 70,000 people either exhibited at or attended the 2018 AHR Expo that boasted 2,155 exhibitors this year.
Both events were held in Chicago in late January.
“The Winter Conference and AHR Expo are prime opportunities for attendees to stay on top of the latest information and technology needed to work toward a more sustainable world,” said 2017-2018 ASHRAE President Bjarne W. Olesen, Ph.D. “Lessons learned at the conference have a direct impact on the success of our industries and afford us the opportunity to extend this knowledge around the world.”
Midway into his tenure as Society president, Olesen delivered his State of ASHRAE Address.
Olesen updated members on the Society’s progress since last June. Those accomplishments include ASHRAE’s partnership with UN Environment, speciality conferences throughout the world and the opening of the ASHRAE Global Training Center for Building Excellence in Dubai, UAE.
ASHRAE also recognized ASHRAE members’ achievements and contributions to the HVAC&R industry. From the 25 people who were elevated to ASHRAE Fellow to the recipients of the ASHRAE Technology Awards, students and members alike were honored.
Looking ahead, the 2018 ASHRAE Annual Conference will take place June 23–27 in Houston. Next year’s Winter Conference is scheduled for Jan. 12–16, and the AHR Expo is set for, Jan. 14–16, both in Atlanta.
GOVERNMENT ADVOCACY COMMITTEE
State and Local Government Affairs
The short session from Feb 5th to May 6th has just begun. Tolls are the big issue on the agenda along with legalized gambling and recreational marijuana usage. There are several smaller but pertinent issues that we are following:
Connecticut’s Energy policy – Governor Lamont is looking to rollback gas initiatives started by the Malloy administration. Katie Dykes Department of Energy and Environmental commissioner has suggested that we pull out of the ISO regional grid because too much power being created is from fossil fuel plants. She believes a greater amount of power should be generated from renewable sources. Check out the real time energy mix data at iso-ne.com . She is also pushing for 0% carbon electric generation by 2040
State budget situation – Tolls, gambling & marijuana are new revenue sources that the State is considering. Also on their plate is the potential to raise license fees, both occupational and professional.
Family medical leave implementation – approved in the previous session medical leave needs to be funded. There is a proposal out to put .5% of wages into a fund to pay for up to 12 weeks of paid family medical leave.
Clean slate legislation – Legislators are considering preventing criminal record questions on job applications. This will make it easier for people coming out of prison to get jobs.
Governor Lamont appointed David Lehman to general economic development. The State currently has low unemployment and we are losing population. New businesses are not being attracted to the State while Massachusetts has a growing population and work force. Apartment buildings are being built but new housing is stagnant. Even with this news there is expectation that 2020 will be a strong year.
Global Government Affairs
European Union Reviews Climate Goals and Launches Sustainable Europe Investment Fund
The Parliament of the European Union (EU) voted 482 to 136 to pass the European Green Deal, which calls for the EU to be carbon neutral by 2050. The Parliament also has pushed for more aggressive 2030 and 2040 targets. To spur the EU's transition to a climate-neutral economy by 2050, the European Union is providing about $1 trillion in financing to spur green investments across all sectors of the economy. For areas of the EU which will be more highly impacted due to higher employment in fossil fuel production, the EU is providing "The Just Transition Fund" to help these countries with their transition. More information can be found here.
China Moves Ahead its Emissions Trading System
China's Senior Climate Change official announced it would establish this year its national emissions trading system for coal- and natural gas-fired power plants, which account for about 40% of the country's carbon emissions. China began working on this emissions trading plan in 2013, but trades have not yet taken place. The system will eventually expand to other industrial sectors of the economy.
