May 7, 2012: Carrier's Latest Sustainability Symposium Series to Provide Green Building Training

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Carrier is launching its third Sustainability Symposium series this month, providing consulting engineers, design-build contractors, and facility managers a one-day course on emerging trends and technologies associated with sustainable, high-performance buildings. The symposiums feature a hands-on look at Carrier’s Mobile Innovation Center, an 18-wheeler featuring the company’s sustainable products and energy service offerings. Carrier is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

Carrier designed the symposiums to allow industry professionals to obtain and easily apply building and design ideas for sustainable high-performance buildings. Each symposium will provide information and standards from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Version Three. Attendees will be able to claim 0.2 continuing education units (CEUs) or 1.5 professional development hours (PDHs) for each workshop for professional licenses. With up to four workshops scheduled, attendees can earn up to 0.8 CEUs or 6 PDHs.

Carrier Sustainability Symposiums are offered through Carrier University’s Institute for Sustainability, which leverages the company’s body of knowledge and expertise to deliver green building and sustainability education. Initiated in 2009, the symposiums have reached more than 2,000 people in 28 cities.

“We wanted to provide an educational forum for industry professionals nationwide to easily learn and apply new design and building ideas for sustainable structures,” said Brian Lynch, manager, Carrier University. “Rather than industry professionals coming to us, Carrier is bringing the Sustainability Symposium to them, hosting one-day workshops in select cities across the U.S. over the next eight months.”

Cities currently scheduled for the 2012 Sustainability Symposiums include:

• Boston - May 8

• New York City - May 8

• Philadelphia - June 13

• Bethesda, Md. - Sept. 17

As part of the symposiums, 10 presenters with more than 250 years of combined HVAC experience will cover topics ranging from micro-steam power systems and fuel cells to refrigerants and chiller plant applications.
