Despite the economic downturn, the conference has broken all previous attendance records with over 400 HVACR Educators and Trainers registered to attend. This year there will be over forty different sessions on new technologies, changes in federal legislation, energy efficiency, best practices, training techniques that work, and green and sustainable technologies.

New Speakers:
Mr. Chris Hasslinger of the United Association (UA) will deliver this years keynote address. Mr. Hasslinger works for the United Associations International Training Fund which develops the training for their nearly 350 apprenticeship training centers and there over 3,000 employer partners. He is currently working on there Green Energy Curriculum that is being implemented throughout the United States and Canada. His presentation will cover Green and Sustainable Technologies in the Classroom and how HVACR Educators and Trainers need to change baseline knowledge of the persons entering our industry. Technicians need to understand concepts and terminology related to green mechanical systems, sustainable HVACR, electrical, energy efficiency concepts, energy management and alternative energy systems. Upon completion of his keynote address, he will invite the attendees of the conference to tour one of the Green and Sustainable Technologies Mobile HVACR classrooms and see first hand the many ways in which a building can use less energy and water.

Ms. Christina Spaulding, the Senior Account Manager for DuPont ISCEON Refrigerants will address the Tuesday morning general session.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
