The New England Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE-NE) announced Energy Efficiency award winners during their Annual Awards Night held on May 4, 2016 in Waltham. The New England Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers is the largest and most active chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers in the United States. Awards were provided for three categories including: Comprehensive Energy Project, Most Innovative Energy Project and Energy Engineer of the Year.
Andy Kelly Manager of Plant Engineering Pepsi, CPF-NEHF Co-Ops in Ayer Massachusetts was named Energy Engineer of the Year. “Within a two year span Andy has taken full advantage of energy efficiency incentives offered through National Grid to upgrade equipment that ultimately saved energy and increased CPF’s productivity” said Sam Nutter AEE-NE Chapter President. Mr. Nutter added that “Mr. Kelly’s efforts also resulted in CPF winning the ‘Comprehensive Project of the Year’”.
The final award of the evening was given to Harvard University’s Sherman Fairchild Laboratory for creative efforts to reduce energy consumption by 21% in a 2011, LEED Platinum building. “Taking an already outstanding building to the next level of energy efficiency required a number of unique engineering approaches. These can be a model for other laboratory and research facilities in the future” said Chapter President Sam Nutter. Harvard's continued efforts to challenge the requirements and to raise the bar to new heights in building efficiency won them the honor of "Most Innovative Energy Project of the Year."
