The big theme to come out of the symposium was the idea of “moving forward.” The group believes that utilities need stronger collaboration with manufacturers to better understand how HVACR technologies can be used and impact energy use. The true smart grid is still on the horizon, so manufacturers, contractors, utilities and policymakers must get to work as soon as possible. “As an industry, we need to encourage the designers to specify the available technology and equipment that is able to be integrated into the smart grid,” CALMAC Manufacturing Corp. CEO Mark MacCracken said. ACWD names top vendor at annual meeting The ACWD buying group held its annual meeting in November at Mohegan Sun Casino in Montville, Conn. A major highlight of the meeting was Raven Sales’ Les Pelletz being named the ACWD 2011 Brad Sell Vendor of the Year for outstanding service to the ACWD group and for his contributions to the industry through innovative products.

ACWD members in attendance included Modern Plumbing; Boston Pipe; Cunningham Supply; New Bedford Supply; North Shore Heating; George O’Brien Supply; Viking Supply; Ace Supply; Betts Piping; Murray Supply; State Supply; and Atlantic Supply.
