Sustainable Resources Management – Training Delivery and Industry Outreach

Sustainable Resources Management (SRM) is a resource management company providing professional energy economics and environmental consulting services. In addition, it provides engineering services for energy and water efficiency improvements through our subsidiary company, a network of energy management consultants, including former utility and government experts, and a strategic alliance with water management and efficiency companies.

Key project personnel from SRM include:

David Katz, MBA, BA
Mr. Katz has extensive experience in technological products and program evaluations for energy and building automation in both institutional and marketplace settings. This includes systematic approaches to project design; training delivery to facility staff; alternative building automation strategies; utilities infrastructure development; deregulation and convergence strategies; project development and management; and product evaluation.

In 1993 he established his consulting practice of Sustainable Resources Management and the controls subsidiary Sustainable Environmental Solutions, after 27 years of corporate procurement and planning responsibilities with Canadian Bechtel Engineering, Johnson & Johnson and Ontario Hydro. His activities included participation in the marketing of new ideas, educating the key players, and motivating the recipients to meet their objective.

At Ontario Hydro he was responsible for developing the multi-attribute scoring system used to evaluate 15 Demand/Supply Strategies. He was trained in California on using Applied Decision Analysis and Expert Systems. Using the Analytical Hierarchy Process he interviewed the key Hydro executives and demonstrated that the wealth of information generated by each strategy to produce electricity as it related to the resulting power costs, load growth risks, economic benefits and impact on the environment could be ranked and scored.

His current consulting activities include energy management, building automation, technology product assessments, sustainable "green" buildings, renewable energy systems, distributed generation and the competitive opportunities arising from the worldwide deregulation of utilities. He is a member of the Environmental Marketing Association and is helping establish the Canadian chapter for the upcoming Carbon Trading market programs.

Robert E. (Bob) Young, P.Eng, MBA who has over 45 years experience in energy and industrial engineering, plant operations management, energy and conservation program planning and administration, and retro-commissioning. Previous experience with the Ontario Ministry of Energy and SNC-Lavilan Profac and Dominion Stores Limited. Bob was a CSA Standards Committee member involved with the writing of CAN/CSA 317.0 Energy Management in Health Care Facilities and CAN/CSA 318.0 Commissioning of Health Care Facilities.

Andrew Gledhill, B.Sc., P.Eng, CEM, LEED AP®, Photovoltaic Technician. Andrew has 30 years of experience in Data Centre/Facility Management, TCP/IP networking and communication design and installation; computer design, development and manufacturing and geophysical equipment development and manufacturing. During the past 10 years Andrew has been Data Centre/Facilities Manager for Primus Telecommunications/Onramp Network Services dealing with HVAC, UPS, electrical, diesel generator and TCP/IP networking infrastructure for several Toronto locations and one in London, Ontario. Prior to that he worked for Geac Computers as System Hardware Development Manager in the development and production of a mainframe, multi-processor transaction processing system. Further work involved networking and communications design and system integration and installation. Some of his current activities include commissioning, LEED EB: O&M, Data Centre review, energy audits and modeling. Memberships: OSPE, IEEE, AEE, ASHRAE Associate, CanSIA, CanWEA.


Dr. Philip Ju, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Dr. Ju has over 20 years worth of professional experience, coupled with a strong education in the mechanical HVAC, refrigeration, and energy conservation fields.  He has designed and commissioned mechanical HVAC engineering systems for residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial projects, and has also designed building automation systems (BAS), reviewed BAS shop drawings, programmed controllers and commissioned BAS systems.

Philip has designed renewable energy systems and combined heat and power systems, and is experienced in energy audits, energy management and utility consumption analysis.  He has also implemented computer simulations for HVAC systems and developed HVAC products.

Prior to coming to Canada, Dr. Ju spent two years in Israel at Tecknion University studying solar cooling. He has managed both university and business engineering projects and supervised numerous staff related to these projects. He holds a Certificate of Authorization from the PEO and his application for Consulting Engineering designation is currently being reviewed for acceptance.

Jan Young, C.E.T.
Mr. Young was a member of Ontario Hydro’s Performance Optimization Target Market Team.  This team was assembled to achieve megawatt targets commensurate with efficiency improvements in motive technologies.  Jan also consulted with Ontario Hydro’s Customer Energy Services (CES) and a large public transit commission regarding new subway cars.  He was able to influence the change from DC traction motors and chopper drives to high efficiency AC traction motors with variable frequency drives for the next generation of subway cars, resulting in electrical demand, energy and maintenance costs being substantially reduced.

Jan provided technical support to Ontario Hydro’s CES and Nanticoke Generating Station in seeking and evaluating proposals for implementing Adjustable Speed Drives on the 3000 HP Induced Draft Fans at the facility.  This was designed to replace the mechanical throttling of the fans, resulting in electrical demand/energy savings and reduced down time.

While providing technical support to Ontario Hydro’s Industrial Programs Department on an on-going basis for motor and motor-driven equipment, Jan also prepared an Industrial Energy Manual to be used as a "self-teaching" aid for our Regional CES representatives.  The manual consists of four modules covering Motors, Power Quality, Adjustable Speed Drives and Industrial Refrigeration.

Since leaving Ontario Hydro Jan has performed numerous energy related projects including the energy measurement for the Dual Heating project for Ontario Hydro Energy Services and CMHC. He has recently completed to interconnection agreements for the micro turbines installed by BluePower. He supervised the recent high voltage sub metering installation at the Blue Mountain Ski Resort.
