December Breakfast Meeting Presentation Thermal Storage Experience An Owner s Perspective Why would an Owner choose Thermal Storage? The rationale for adding a chilled water storage system at Princeton University will be presented. What are the potential savings resulting from Thermal Storage? The projected and actual economics of the project will be reviewed. How difficult was the plant to build and what has been the operating experience? The Owner s experience of both the installation and maintenance of the plant will be examined, and lessons learned will be summarized. December Breakfast Meeting Speaker Ted Borer, PE, CEM, LEED AP Princeton University Energy Plant Manager As Princeton University Energy Plant Manager, Ted is responsible for the plant that provides all heating, cooling, and power for the 500 acre campus. His duties include oversight of plant operations, plant engineering and maintenance, long-term planning for campus thermal distribution systems and construction oversight for utility plant projects. Ted has been at Princeton since 1994 and was originally hired to oversee the construction and startup of the cogeneration plant. He recently managed a plant expansion including the addition of a 40,000 ton-hour thermal storage system and 5000 tons of cooling capacity. Prior to Princeton, Ted worked as a Mechanical Engineer at PECO Energy (now Exelon) with assignments in both the central engineering office and various power plants. Ted has earned Bachelors and Masters degrees in Mechanical Engineering, he is a licensed Professional Engineer, and a member of ASHRAE, ASME, IDEA, and various other industry organizations.

Page 6 Internship and Fellowship Opportunities We are pleased to make you aware of two excellent opportunities for ASHRAE members (one for students and one for professional members): Washington Internship for Students of Engineering (WISE): Each year, outstanding engineering students are selected to spend nine weeks in a special summer program in Washington, D.C. to learn how government officials make decisions on complex technological issues and how engineers can contribute to legislative and regulatory public policy decisions. The WISE Program is ranked as one of the best Internship opportunities in the U.S. by the Princeton Review. The students work under the guidance of a prominent engineering professor who serves as Faculty-Member-in-Residence. Students also interact with and are mentored by representatives of their sponsoring societies. A stipend of $2, is provided to cover the Intern s living and travel expenses. Lodging is provided; participants are housed in a dormitory on the campus of George Washington University in the heart of Washington, DC. Applications are due by December 31, More details on the program are available at and ASHRAE Washington Fellowship: ASHRAE is sponsoring a one year Federal Fellowship Program known as the ASHRAE Washington Fellowship. This program will enable a selected ASHRAE member to devote a year working within the federal government providing engineering and technical advice to policy makers in either Congress, a Federal Agency (e.g., DOE, DHS, GSA), or the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. This Fellowship is geared to establish and nurture critical links between federal decision-makers and engineering professionals to support public policy that benefits the wellbeing of the nation and the planet. Federal Government Fellowships provide a valuable public service to the nation while at the same time providing engineers with a unique opportunity to participate directly in the policy making process. This is an exciting, rewarding, and educational period in their professional careers. This enriching experience enables Fellows to bring back to their employers an insider s perspective on government decision making that can contribute significantly to the mission and vision of the organization. Fellowship candidates should possess a PhD or other terminal degree in an engineering or scientific discipline. Fellowships are a one-year opportunity (September to August). An orientation will be provided through the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). A stipend of $45,000 will be provided. Deadline for applications is May 1, More details on the program are available at Please share these excellent opportunities with your colleagues and students.
