AIRAH offers accreditation for energy auditors (05/06/2013)
AIRAH manages a national register of accredited energy auditors, who have the capacity to undertake energy audits and develop energy-management systems.
Applications are open right now to become an AIRAH-accredited energy auditor.
AIRAH chief operating officer Neil Cox says that energy auditors perform a vital role, and one whose importance will only increase.
“We live in age of spiralling utility costs and an acute awareness of the role power generation plays in elevating carbon emissions,” Cox says.
“It makes a lot of sense, therefore, for firms to strongly consider bringing in an energy auditor – a professional who is capable of detecting and explaining exactly how energy is being consumed in a commercial or industrial business.
“And because of the keen understanding that Australian companies now have of the relationship between errant energy use, growing costs and elevating emissions, becoming an AIRAH-accredited energy auditor offers a business opportunity where there are potentially thousands of commercial and industrial clients waiting to be helped.”
AIRAH education manager Carolyn Hughes says AIRAH-accredited energy auditors have demonstrated their competency in delivering Level 3 energy audits as defined in the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3598 (2000): Energy Audits.
“A rigorous peer review process and reference process is undertaken to establish the competence of AIRAH-accredited energy auditors,” Hughes says, adding that auditors are reassessed for their currency in the market every two years.

AIRAH's Sydney PreLoved Buildings Conference calls for abstracts (15/05/2013)
The latest in the series of AIRAH PreLoved Buildings conferences will be held in Sydney, from November 13–14.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says that bringing the existing building stock in Australia up to speed is equally as important as the focus on new high-performing structures.
It’s this imperative that’s inspired the conference’s tagline of “Preloved buildings reloved”.
"We all know that existing buildings comprise the lion's share of the energy and emissions consumption in the built environment, that most of our initiatives have short pay-back periods, and improve the lot of building owners and tenants alike,” Wilkinson says. “Why then is it so hard for building upgrade projects to get funded and get off the ground?
“This year's PreLoved Buildings Conference will focus on talking the talk as well as walking the walk: how to communicate effectively, how to be heard, how to build effective relationships – with both your buildings and the people who own them – and how to show real value.”
PreLoved Buildings Conference committee chair Paul Davy, M.AIRAH, says that abstracts are welcome on a range of topics.
“In general, abstracts that encourage interaction with the audience are encouraged,” Davy says. “We are looking for a higher percentage of workshops, panel sessions or other more innovative ways of including everybody's views and experiences in the conference. Horror story case studies are encouraged – not just success stories.”
Abstracts are welcome but not limited to on an array of subjects, including:
- Case studies of Grade B, C or D commercial buildings, data centres, healthcare facilities, aged care/retirement living facilities.
- Case studies of upgrades requiring attention to the building fabric and facades, perhaps dictated by a requirement to comply with Part J of the NCC.
- Building owner and building manager perspectives – what works, what doesn't. What do building owners and building managers want from their buildings and consultants? What work do they value?
- How practitioners can build a business case for improvement initiatives; how to communicate/market; how to make it happen.
- Securing project financing, and how the works can impact on a building's value.
“Students and recent graduates are encouraged to present and provide new solutions to the old problems, to bring a fresh perspective,” Davy says.
The Sydney 2013 PreLoved Buildings Conference is the seventh in a series of highly successful AIRAH conferences, with previous iterations held in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, as well as previously in the New South Wales capital.
By submitting an abstract, delegates are agreeing to submit a technical paper. AIRAH non-members chosen to present at the conference will be charged a small fee.
Abstracts are due July 26. For more information about the Sydney 2013 PreLoved Buildings Conference, email email@example.com

AIRAH is closing the skills gap for building services and refrigeration engineers (14/05/2013)
AIRAH, the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating, is executing pivotal work around creating career pathways for engineers working in building services and refrigeration.
Following AIRAH’s discussions and research with the HVAC&R industry, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will – as of May 14 – officially recognise “building services engineer” as a discrete occupation. The announcement coincides with the release of AIRAH’s Building Services Engineer (mechanical) – model career pathway.
AIRAH is also conducting research around the feasibility of the profession “refrigeration engineer” being recognised as a discrete occupation by the ABS.
The ABS says Building Services Engineer will be listed as a specialisation under 233512 Mechanical Engineer in the release of ANZSCO Version 1.2, slated for May 14.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says the announcement from the ABS is the culmination of considerable work around developing a model career pathway for mechanical building services engineers. The work, Wilkinson says, was inspired by AIRAH's “closing the skills gap” strategic aim.
“The term ‘mechanical engineer’ is a broad description that covers roles beyond the HVAC industry, whereas ‘building services engineer’ more specifically refers to mechanical services such as air conditioning, heating and ventilation,” Wilkinson explains.
AIRAH’s Building Services Engineer (mechanical) – model career pathway is now available from the “Careers resources” tab of www.airah.org.au
“The model career pathway defines job titles, roles, tasks, skills and knowledge requirements of mechanical engineers working in the building services sector,” Wilkinson says. “The development of the model career pathway is part of a process to help identify skills gaps in the HVAC&R sector in Australia.”
The pathway as its defined progresses through four stages: Level 1, the graduate mechanical engineer or engineering officer level; Level 2, mechanical engineer; Level 3, senior mechanical engineer; to Level 4, principal engineer.
The career pathway offers recommended tasks, as well as knowledge and skill requirements for each job title.
Also inspired by its strategic aim to close skills gaps, AIRAH is defining the skills and knowledge requirements of refrigeration engineers by requesting those who work in the profession to complete a 20-minute survey.
“The definitions will be used to examine the feasibility of formally recognising ‘refrigeration engineer’ as a discreet occupation, and its roles and tasks at different levels,” Wilkinson says.
AIRAH interviewed a sample of members to examine their job titles, roles, tasks, skills, knowledge and educational experiences. Four distinct roles were identified: “applications engineer”, “refrigeration engineer”, “senior refrigeration engineer”, and “principal refrigeration engineer”.

AIRAH launches Solar Cooling Special Technical Group (13/05/2013)
AIRAH (the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating) has launched its Solar Cooling Special Technical Group.
AIRAH’s special technical groups (STGs) provide a way of channelling specialist expertise from the wider industry into the Institute. They give their constituents – who are all AIRAH members as well as elite practitioners – a platform for involvement in issues that affect their discipline, including policy advice and regulation development.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says the aims of the AIRAH Solar Cooling STG are to advocate for solar cooling, to develop industry practitioner skills, to provide a hub for solar cooling information sharing, and to encourage better communication between stakeholders.
“As the sun beats down and air conditioners are turned up, what could be more logical than solar air conditioning? And with enthusiasm for solving Australia’s electricity grid issues, solar air conditioning could be one of the HVAC industry’s answers to reducing both greenhouse gas issues and electricity infrastructure costs,” Wilkinson says.
“So by developing skills and capacity in the use of solar cooling technology, the AIRAH Solar Cooling Special Technical Group will help enable the HVAC industry to access new business opportunities in the renewable energy industry.”
Dr Stephen White, M.AIRAH, from CSIRO Energy Technology, says the AIRAH Solar Cooling STG will address barriers to the development of a vibrant solar air conditioning industry across Australia. He says the STG has a number of tasks it will implement in order to achieve its goal of growing skills and capacity building.
These initiatives include developing a comprehensive web portal; holding a regular conference to share information and recognise project excellence; delivering quality solar cooling training; preparing an industry roadmap; submitting responses to government public consultation processes; contributing to solar cooling standard development; and supporting AIRAH’s Dennis Joseph Award for the innovative use of solar energy in HVAC&R.
“The AIRAH Solar Cooling Special Technical Group will develop a work plan to promote a level playing field for HVAC-based solutions in the renewable industry,” White says. “The STG will also disseminate the latest technical information on solar cooling – taking advantage of standards, guides and tools.”
White says Australia is one of the leading countries in the race to develop new solar air conditioning solutions.
“Solar cooling involves the transformation of solar energy into useful building air conditioning,” White says. “In terms of reducing emissions and lower energy costs, it makes a lot of sense.
“Now with the AIRAH Solar Cooling STG, the discipline will have some much needed structure, and the support of Australia’s most respected HVAC&R organisation, in order to help take solar cooling to the next level.”

AIRAH's Building Simulation Workshop a stunning success (07/05/2013)
Almost 70 delegates gathered recently in Melbourne for the AIRAH Building Simulation Workshop, with the aim of discussing all things relating to the discipline of building simulation, including best practice, legislation, accreditation, and modelling protocols.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says the Workshop achieved its aim of bringing practitioners together in an instructive and informative forum.
“The AIRAH Building Simulation Workshop was about education and discussing the issues,” Wilkinson says. “The aim was to advance the status and quality of the industry’s use of simulation; the workshop definitely laid down some very positive groundwork to that end.”
AIRAH’s gathering of simulators followed on from Building Simulation 2011 held in Sydney, which proved there was considerable demand for more information about the field.
AIRAH Building Simulation Workshop committee chair Paul Bannister, M.AIRAH, says a lack of skills among professionals has created some continuing challenges for the industry.
“The use of computer simulation of building performance has become embedded in many of the industry’s standard processes, including the BCA, NABERS and Green Star. And yet for many, this has been a recent development,” he says.
“There are significant skills gaps in the industry that lead to sub-optimal – and sometimes substandard – work being produced."
A desire to close those skills gaps was one of the motivations behind the Workshop, which called together dynamic thermal simulation users and their managers, offering the opportunity to discuss some of the key questions facing the industry and how it uses simulation.
The Workshop explored the harmonisation of Code and Standards requirements, and how to improve accuracy of modellers, as well as quality control and client perception. Presenters also discussed the role of simulation in ESD consulting, and the science behind simulation, calibration, measurement and verification.
During the final session for the day, Workshop attendees weighed in on the topic of accreditation, teaching and quality assurance. The panel discussion format opened the floor to the audience, allowing delegates to speculate on the best way forward for modellers and the simulation industry in general.
The Workshop’s keynote speech, “Australian climate data for building energy simulation” was delivered by Ben Liley from New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research. Liley spoke about the work he’s been doing to update the Australian Climate Data Bank files for the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency’s NatHERS scheme.
Liley says energy-efficient design needs to be sensitive to the wide variation in climate across Australia, and building simulation has a pivotal role to play in this area.
“The ability to simulate the climate inside buildings – from design information and data to characterise the external climate – means that air conditioning and heating systems can be optimised, rather than just designed for what may be a highly improbable combination of extremes,” he says. “Better informed designs can save both cost and environmental footprint.”
The AIRAH Building Simulation Workshop was supported by IBPSA (The International Building Performance Simulation Association).

AIRAH announces PRIME Roadmap for low-emissions HVAC&R (09/04/2013)
The AIRAH Industry Summit 2013 held late last month in Melbourne brought together more than 30 key stakeholders to discuss the way forward to a low-emissions HVAC&R industry. A key announcement was the launch of the proposed PRIME Roadmap for HVAC&R.
In the lead-up to the AIRAH Industry Summit 2013, AIRAH, with the assistance of many of the stakeholders who attended, developed a 150-page draft discussion paper.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says this process led to a far more important development: that of the proposed PRIME Roadmap for HVAC&R.
“PRIME represents the five pathways to transition,” Wilkinson says. “All proposed solutions from the discussion paper have been divided into five categories: Professionalism, Regulation, Information, Measurement, and Emission abatement.
“In many ways the HVAC&R industry is still fragmented, which makes progress towards lower emissions that much more challenging. What’s required is a strategy, and that’s where PRIME comes in.”
In the lead-up to the AIRAH Industry Summit 2013, industry stakeholders were asked to comment on the issues raised in the discussion paper, and to focus on potential solutions. These solutions were then allocated into the five PRIME subject areas. They were further divided by priority, complexity, potential for emission reduction, and resources that might be contributed.
Using this data, AIRAH will develop a draft of the PRIME Roadmap. Industry will then be asked to consider the best mechanisms for driving the program forward.
“Through the Summit, the HVAC&R industry came together, and now there is a groundswell of support for the pillars underpinning the proposed PRIME roadmap for HVAC&R,” Wilkinson says. “Our vision is for a highly skilled and professional Australian HVAC&R industry that is safe, cost-effective and environmentally effective.”
Wilkinson says consolidating a multitude of viewpoints and bringing the industry together to discuss it represents a formidable task.
“The need to transition to low-emission HVAC&R has become self-evident,” Wilkinson says. “So the purpose of the AIRAH Industry Summit 2013 was not to discuss ‘why’, but rather to focus on the ‘how’ and ‘what’ of low emissions. That’s what the Summit was all about, and making it happen represented a landmark piece of work.”
The Summit was chaired by AIRAH board director Bryon Price, M.AIRAH.
“Our industry has influence and control over a significant component of mankind’s impact on the Earth via emissions and carbon usage,” Price says.
“We have the responsibility and capacity to do something about this. But we also have the responsibility to plan for an HVAC&R industry that is productive and prosperous. We think PRIME could be pivotal component in accomplishing this.”

AIRAH announces comprehensive conference program for 2013 (03/04/2013)
AIRAH has announced its conference program for 2013: four major events to be held across the country from April to November.
The four conferences are the AIRAH Building Simulation Workshop, to be held in Melbourne on April 18; Refrigeration 2013, scheduled for Hobart on May 10; The Future of HVAC 2013, which will take place in Melbourne over August 13–14, and the PreLoved Buildings Conference, which is slated to be held in Sydney from November 13–14.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says the conference program represents a solid schedule of four events designed to appeal to the Institute’s wide stakeholder base.
“Hosting conferences is an absolutely essential component of AIRAH’s activities,” Wilkinson says. “They bring together like minds to discuss industry best practice and cutting-edge issues, and provide an opportunity for AIRAH’s broad membership to gather and network.
“AIRAH is leading the way in professionalising the industry, closing the skills gaps and dedicating considerable resources to running events. We are also the leading provider of continuing professional development in our field, and our conference program dovetails nicely with this to offer a wide range of learning opportunities.”
To be held at the Mercure Melbourne later this month, the AIRAH Building Simulation Workshop (supported by the International Building Performance Simulation Association) aims to fill the skills gaps that exist within the field of building simulation.
Registrations have opened for the conference, which will feature presentations on a range of subjects, including: the use and abuse of simulation; simulation, calibration, measurement and verification; and a harmonisation update.
Registrations have also opened for Refrigeration 2013 – embracing the challenges and opportunities, taking place in Hobart next month.
Conference committee chair Stefan Jensen, F.AIRAH, says there are many topics that need to be fleshed out in detail, and that Refrigeration 2013 – embracing the challenges and opportunities provides the opportunity to do this.
“We’re talking about a conference that is absolutely necessary to have right now,” Jensen says. “And if you work in the refrigeration industry, it’s absolutely important for you to attend.”
The impetus to hold The Future of HVAC 2013 conference is to provide analysis of those things – everything from technology and materials through to legislative and regulatory changes – that will affect the HVAC industry in the near future.
“We are aiming to have a conference that offers a useful glimpse at the future of HVAC by looking at the things that are driving change, because these drive the future,” says conference committee chair Bryon Price, M.AIRAH.
Abstracts for The Future of HVAC 2013 are due April 26.
The latest in a successful series, AIRAH’s PreLoved Buildings Conference will take place at Doltone House in the Sydney suburb of Pyrmont.
“One of AIRAH’s most successful and recognisable conference series, the PreLoved Buildings conferences focus on optimising the performance of Australia’s existing building stock,” Wilkinson says.

AIRAH releases draft Code of Practice for Flammable Refrigerants for comment (28/03/2103)
AIRAH has released its draft Code of Practice for Flammable Refrigerants to review stage. The draft is available at www.airah.org.au until April 14, and feedback from industry stakeholders is strongly encouraged.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says the rising popularity of flammable refrigerants demands a national, over-arching set of guidelines. He says AIRAH aims for the Code to achieve the standards of health, safety and welfare required under the Work, Health and Safety Act and the Work, Health and Safety Regulations.
“Whether you’re talking about hydrocarbons or synthetic refrigerants, the rise in the use of flammable refrigerants is inevitable,” Wilkinson says. “And because of the flammable nature of these substances, regulations concerning them have existed at state level. The Code of Practice for Flammable Refrigerants brings these all together in the one useful document. It’s all about safety.”
AIRAH coordinated the formation of the industry taskforce that developed the Code of Practice. Formed in February last year, the taskforce represents a range of government and industry bodies, including gas, electrical and workplace regulators; fire services; wholesalers; manufacturers; associations; educators; consultants; and maintenance contractors.
Wilkinson says the Code is aimed at industry end users, installation and maintenance/service contractors, and consultants.
“The Code of Practice for Flammable Refrigerants concerns managing the health and safety risks associated with the safe design, manufacture, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, decommissioning and disposal of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment and systems that use a flammable refrigerant,” Wilkinson says. “If the Code of Practice is approved, it will be a practical guide to achieving the standards of health, safety and welfare required under both the Act and the Regulations.”
Co-funding to develop the Code was provided by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.
The Code specifically applies to all stationary refrigerating systems of all sizes – including air conditioners and heat pumps – which are to be charged with flammable refrigerants that have a refrigerant classification of A2, A2L or A3, or any other refrigerant that meets the criteria to be classified as A2, A2L or A3 refrigerant.
The draft Code is now available for review at the “useful documents” section of www.airah.org.au.
The Code of Practice for Flammable Refrigerants is slated for release in the second half of the year.

AIRAH releases ground-breaking discussion paper for review (24/01/2013)
AIRAH has released its draft discussion paper, Transition to low-emission HVAC&R: Issues and solutions, for public and industry review.
The paper is available at the “Resources” section of the AIRAH website, www.airah.org.au, with comments due by 5pm, Friday February 8.
AIRAH CEO Phil Wilkinson, M.AIRAH, says the paper was prepared to facilitate industry discussions about the steps that need to be taken to help transition the Australian heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) industry to a low-emission future.
“Transition to low-emission HVAC&R: Issues and solutions represents the HVAC&R industry’s most ambitious project in years,” Wilkinson says.
“The discussion paper’s purpose is to canvass industry stakeholders and help build consensus on the best ways to help the industry make the transition to low-emission practices and technology.
“This discussion paper will form the basis of an industry summit to be held to consider the key issues, solutions and actions that need to be taken to make that transition.”
Wilkinson says that given the national and international concern regarding carbon dioxide emissions and the resulting atmospheric effects, there is growing regulatory, financial and community pressure for the HVAC&R industry to reduce its environmental impact and increase its efficiency.
“The industry needs to make this transition to low-emission practices and technologies because governments are demanding it, the environment needs it, and society is expecting it,” Wilkinson says. “The sector is a substantial consumer of energy and a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. The HVAC&R sector is responsible for a considerable portion of Australian national emissions.”
Wilkinson says the following estimates have been made:
- 24 per cent of Australia’s emissions are directly attributable to the built environment in which HVAC&R is a significant consumer (30 to 50 per cent);
- 3–5 per cent of Australian emissions are directly attributable to the refrigeration cold chain; and
- 1–3 per cent of Australian direct emissions are attributable to direct refrigerant emissions.
“The purpose of this discussion paper is not to immediately solve all of the issues faced by the industry or to mandate the essential steps that the industry must take to be environmentally and commercially effective,” Wilkinson says.
“Rather, Transition to low-emission HVAC&R: Issues and solutions provides industry stakeholders with a mechanism within which they can identify the main issues faced by their sector, share ideas and suggest some solutions that can be implemented to address those issues.”
Feedback and comment about the discussion paper will be compiled and considered for incorporation into a final discussion paper. This will be used to frame discussion at the AIRAH Industry Summit 2013, an invitation-only event for HVAC&R stakeholders to be held in Melbourne on March 27.
The discussion paper evolved out the AIRAH Industry Summit 2012, held last March in the lead-up to the carbon-equivalent levy on certain refrigerants known as synthetic greenhouse gases. The levy was introduced as part of the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Future legislative package on July 1 last year.
The AIRAH Industry Summit 2012 brought together 30 key stakeholders and representatives from government and industry organisations to discuss implications arising from the carbon tax and the levy.
A communiqué was distilled from the summit’s conversations. This called on the government to take a number of urgent actions, including a call for more funding, awareness-raising and the formation of an interdepartmental committee.
Transition to low-emission HVAC&R: Issues and solutions and the AIRAH Industry Summit 2013 are intended to help provide strategic direction for the industry’s future.
AIRAH Fellow Stefan Jensen, F.AIRAH, who serves on the steering committee for the discussion paper and is committee chair for AIRAH’s coming Refrigeration 2013 conference, says the importance of the discussion paper should not be underestimated.
“If the industry can manage to implement the changes discussed in Transition to low-emission HVAC&R: Issues and solutions over the next decade,” Jensen says, “it will represent the most significant shift in industry attitudes since the Montreal Protocol.”
