With the United States and much of the world mired in a recession, it is no surprise that many industrial- and commercial/institutional-boiler manufacturers are expecting tough times in 2009. How tough is anyone's guess.
The annual International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo), scheduled for Jan. 26 to 28 at Chicago's McCormick Place may not surpass last year's record-breaking expo in New York City, but it appears it will be a well-attended event.
Greenbuild International Conference and Expo just continues to grow.

That's big.
The price of steel, the present and future of the energy industry, and the U.S. presidential election were among several key topics addressed during the American Boiler Manufacturers Association's (ABMA's) Summer Meeting June 20-23 in San Diego.
The accelerating drive to apply sustainable engineering and design techniques and principles to buildings around the world was evident during the 10th Global Engineering Conference, held April 9-11 in Las Vegas.
Heating in cold climates has put industry professionals to the test. Many heating systems don’t perform as the temperature drops, causing end users to rely on auxiliary heat, and often on fossil fuels. Advanced heating technology was developed to address these very issues, and heat pumps can now offer impressive performance in even the coldest climates – with no need for auxiliary heat....More
