GTI's Paul Glanville Receives the 2013 Carrier Award from ASHRAE
7/8/14 Des Plaines, IL
Congratulations are in order for Paul Glanville, Gas Technology Institute (GTI) Senior Engineer in End Use Solutions, who received an important honor at the ASHRAE Annual Conference on June 28 in Seattle.
Glanville was presented with the Carrier Award, a significant annual award for the best published paper of outstanding quality presented at a Society meeting and authored by a young engineer. Glanville received the award for Conference Paper DA-13-023 "Short-Term Performance of Gas-Fired Tankless Water Heater: Laboratory Characterization." Douglas Kosar, GTI Senior Institute Engineer, and Jason Stair, GTI Engineer were co-authors on the paper.
The paper presents results from evaluations of tankless water heaters carried out at GTI laboratories under a California Energy Commission Residential Water Heating Program contract. Those results have helped inform manufacturers, contractors, end users, utilities, regulatory agencies, standard/code authorities, energy use modelers, and equipment researchers/developers about state-of-the-art tankless water heater operating characteristics and areas for improvement. The full report from this Energy Commission program can be found here.
GTI has specialized expertise in residential space conditioning and water heating, with a focus on traditional and next-generation heat pump solutions for HVAC systems; water heaters (advanced tank and tankless products as well as heat pump and solar thermal systems); and cooking equipment.
Researchers are evaluating technologies with the potential to provide significant energy and emissions reductions and modeling equipment performance to compare life cycle and operating costs, source-energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions. Working with commercial partners, GTI is performing technology and market assessments to enhance the competitiveness of gas-fueled equipment and provide consumers with emission and energy-cost savings.
The award, sponsored by the Carrier Corporation, was established in 1960 in honor of Willis H. Carrier. It is presented by ASHRAE, the premiere international heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) organization. ASHRAE was founded in 1894 and has more than 54,000 members worldwide. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.
