Feb. 9, 2007: Instructor Workshop to Include Sessions on Energy Issues

LANDSOWNE, Va. -Two general sessions will bookend the 2007 HVACR & Plumbing Instructor Workshop sponsored by Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI), Council of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Educators (CARE), Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Heating, Airconditioning, Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), North American Technician Excellence (NATE), Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors (PHCC) Educational Foundation, Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), and SkillsUSA. The workshop will be held March 28-30 at the National Conference Center.

James McGarvey, executive director of the New York State Weatherization Directors’ Association, will address the opening session. His topic, “‘Peak Oil’: Myth or Reality?”, will cover what the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Hirsch Report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) Energy Outlook, the U.S. Army Corps’ Energy Study, and other reports have to say on whether the world is at “peak oil” status. Discussions will also center on what the implications are if this is the case, as well as what the solutions are to the problem.

The closing session will feature Chandler von Schrader from the DOE. He will speak on the issue of “Energy in America” with an emphasis on Energy Star® success and current direction, energy supply, and demand - including demands for heating and cooling of buildings. Today’s prospects on alternate energy sources will also be a part of the speaker’s remarks.

The HVACR & Plumbing Instructor Workshop is recommended for all plumbing and HVACR instructors, administrators, and counselors in secondary programs, post secondary programs, and proprietary programs. In addition, plumbing and HVACR apprentice program instructors and administrators - as well as apprentice program advisory committee members - are encouraged to attend.
