Three winners awarded Ken Dale Travel Bursary
Posted: 15 July 2013
CIBSE has awarded the Ken Dale Bursary Travel Fund to three recipients for the first time. Examining ways to improve building performance and reduce energy demand, the engineers will be researching ‘CO2 Heat Reclaim' in Scandinavia; sustainability in Vancouver, Sydney and Beijing; and renewable technologies in Africa.
Three Award winners were chosen due to the volume of high quality applications received; and are funded by the Ken Dale Bursary, the Society of Public Health Engineers and the Richard Tully Fund. The winners are Katie Wallace, Angela Reid and Kayley Lockhead.
The Ken Dale Travel Bursary has been established to commemorate Ken Dale's contribution to the Institution's members and the industry. The Bursary offers CIBSE members in the developmental stage of their careers the chance to travel and research areas connected with the applicant's field of work; this in turn will benefit not only their employer and their clients but also the professions within the building services engineering industry including CIBSE.
Katie Wallace is an energy efficiency consultant for Sainsbury's and will undertake her research of ‘Co2 Heat Reclaim' in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, focussing on CO2 refrigeration in supermarkets. Katie will develop a theoretical model of heat reclaim as a retrofit option for existing stores.
Angela Reid, associate sustainability consultant for Wallace Whittle, has identified three international sustainable mixed use developments in Vancouver, Sydney and Beijing that she will visit to research overall sustainability focussing on energy reduction and supply.
Kayley Lockhead, of NG Bailey, has elected to study renewable technologies in Africa in order to alleviate poverty and protect the environment. This research will take her to Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda where she will visit existing renewable energy systems and contact local policy makers to discuss constraints, benefits and progress development.
