IEM Position Paper on "Energy Efficiency"
- A Forum to Consolidate the Draft Position Paper
Panelist : Engr. G Lalchand, Engr. Dr Phillip Tan, Engr. Gurmit Singh, Engr. Mah Soo & Engr. Chew Shee Fuee
24 June 2008, Tuesday (2 CPD) - 2nd Floor, IEM Conference Hall
Efficient use of energy (or Energy efficiency – EE) in Malaysia has been a national policy objective in several Malaysia Plans but has not been widely achieved for various reasons, a key reason being the low, heavily subsidized prices of energy. The Malaysian government has provided attractive incentives to encourage adoption of EE initiatives but their impact has been minimal. This paper concentrates on electricity use and addresses the various reasons for the lack of success. It assesses the economic impact of not using energy efficiently, identifies options and recommends mechanisms to successfully encourage adoption of initiatives for efficient use of energy.
Talk on "Complete Systematic De-Contamination and Treatment on HVAC”Speaker : Mr. William Rodney Yeo, MBA
19 June 2008, Thursday (2 CPD) - 2nd Floor, IEM Conference Hall
Bio-Film (jelly/slime), bacteria, fungal and mould is found in virtually aqueous environment such as cooling coils, heat exchangers, distribution pipes, cooling tower in-fills and or any substrates. Bacterial bio-films (jelly/slime) are one of the causes of “Sick Building Syndrome” and/or “Building Related Illnesses”, system fouling, product contamination, equipment failure, decreased productivity due to downtime for system cleaning, wear/tear, expensive replacement parts, reduction of airflow, reduction in heat transfer, scaling and loss in efficiency. This presentation will give you an insight of what is actually happening in the HVAC industry and how we are able to combat the problems.
Speaker : Stephen P.Warhoe, P.E., CCE, CFCC, CCM
Talk on "The Basics of Earned Value Management"
5 June 2008, Thursday (2 CPD) - 2nd Floor, ISM Conference Hall
Earned Value Management, or EVM is one of the most effective project management tools and cost control methods used today. Mr. Stephen Warhoe will introduce the attendees to EVM’s history and why it is so effective on projects that range from oil refinery construction projects to software development projects. He will discuss the basic concepts of EVM, including the integration of the project’s scope of work, budget, and schedule. Other related topics affecting the EVM system will be discussed including work breakdown structures, resource loading of the project schedule, forecasting final project costs, productivity issues, and potential flaws of EVM. A discussion on performance indices, the most effective aspects of EVM, will then follow. Mr. Warehoe will then conclude the presentation with some example problems. This presentation will provide an excellent overview for all project controls professionals.
Talk on "Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery - Trends, Challenges and Recovery Strategies"
Speaker : Mr. Lai Boon Wah
5 June 2008, Thursday (2 CPD) - 2nd Floor, IEM Conference Hall
The speaker will initially examine the fundamental reasons why there is a need for Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) Planning and the types of business interruptions/disasters together with some overseas and local statistics presented. The BC/DR trends are analysed and then followed by presentation of the cost components and the spending patterns by companies, including some survey results. As most businesses today are heavily dependent on Information Technology (IT) to conduct business operation and transactions, various strategies addressing the specific requirements of the business entities to recover IT systems/applications, hardware servers, databases and networks in the event of disaster or any interruption are also discussed.
