Fermilab Group Wins Energy Conservation Awards
FEMP award

On October 29, Kurt Kasules, Gary Sliwicki and Romesh Sood from the Technical Division, and Michael Michalak and Ted Thorson from the Facilities Engineering Services Section received a 2003 Federal Energy and Water Management Award and a 2003 DOE Management Award. The awards, presented at separate ceremonies in Washington, D.C., honor individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions to energy and water conservation.

The team from TD and FESS recommended and implemented state-of-the-art direct digital controls for the Industrial Center Building's five heating, ventilation and air conditioning units and two water chillers. "The computerized system allows the TD to achieve a precise environment for the building and saves Fermilab about $40,000 per year," Sood explains, one of the award recipients.

Fermilab has received an energy management award every year since 1998. "Fermilab is a leader among DOE labs in energy conservation. We have completed more utility incentive programs than any other DOE site and have already exceeded President Bush's 2010 energy conservation goals," says Steve Krstulovich, who nominated this year's project for the awards. "We hope these awards will inspire other Fermilab employees to team up and develop projects that will save energy and water."

Investment seeks science dividend
By Paul Rincon
Britain will need to find hundreds of millions of pounds to join the next decade's great scientific projects.
The UK's Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council says early investment will earn British researchers prime use of some important future facilities.

One such programme is the world's most powerful particle accelerator which will unravel the secrets of matter.
