Mitsubishi Electric Participates in ACEEE Panel

Earlier this week, our Senior Director of Industry and Government Affairs, Paul Doppel, and our Senior Manager of Mechanical Design, Joe Bush, participated in a panel session at the 2013 American Council for an Energy-efficient Economy (ACEEE) Hot Water Forum. Held at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, the annual forum is the premier technical conference dedicated to evaluating the three fundamentals of the efficient hot water system: heating water, distributing it with low losses and using it with efficient fixtures and practices.

The panel, “Inverter Driven Hot Water: Heating Water with Multi-Purpose Residential Heat Pumps,” was moderated by Doppel. Bush was tapped as a presenter alongside other industry professionals, including Wayne Reedy from ASHRAE and Dave Lis, senior manager, appliance standards and market strategies at the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.

The panel discussed the emergence of INVERTER-driven compressor systems into the water heating marketplace and showed how the new ASHRAE Standard 206, “Method of Testing for Rating of Multi-Purpose Heat Pumps for Residential Space Conditioning and Water Heating,” works for these very complex systems.

The ACEEE is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to be a catalyst for the advancement of energy efficiency policies, programs, technologies investments and behaviors. With our shared vision of producing energy-efficient technology, the ACEEE has been a great industry partner of ours for years as we’ve strived to champion legislation recognizing efficient HVAC technologies. We were honored to be selected to present along with other distinguished industry associations as part of their latest forum.
