This Month’s Topic: Heat Pumps’ Role in the Transition Away from Fossil Fuels
As Presented By: Mr. John Ciovacco
If equipment utilizing fossil fuels was no longer an option, how might that change your role as an engineer, system designer, equipment manufacturer, distributor, or mechanical contractor? To achieve NYS’s energy and environmental goals, heat pumps are being written into NYS policy as the principal alternative to fossil fuel heating & hot water for buildings. The reaction to ConEd’s Natural Gas Moratorium, effective March 15, 2019, has highlighted some of the challenges involved in a transition away from fossil fuels, and towards the electrification of buildings. The NYS Department of Public Service has ordered utilities to develop programs with increased incentives for heat pumps, not only for reductions in fossil fuels but also for decreases in peak electric or peak gas demand.

I would first like to take the time to formally introduce myself. My name is Jason Filler and I am proud to be the new ASHRAE Northeast Chapter Membership Promotion Committee Chair. I have only been a member of ASHRAE for a short time; however, I have seen firsthand the immense benefits of being part of such a great community. The network of industry experts, informative monthly meetings, and overall knowledge I have gained from being a member; make me excited to share our organization and strengthen our Northeast Chapter’s membership.
I plan to utilize my 6 years of local experience and networking in service and sales to not only increase membership but also enhance current membership. I look forward to working with all of you to grow our chapter through membership engagement, requesting and applying member feedback, tracking of membership renewals and upgrades, recruitment, networking, and hosting great events.
Lastly, we will be working on numerous events and outings for our chapter next year. Beyond the usual monthly meetings, we will be doing regular outings and events to further encourage member engagement. Some of these events will include trivia nights, happy hours and networking events. We will also make it a focus to recognize our lifetime members and their contributions to their fields.
