Jeffrey Carroll, LEED®GA, CIGC, CEM, Siemens Industry, will discuss the topic of cities, infrastructure and energy performance contracting with local government and more specifically, the city of Chicago.  You will learn about some of the trends and challenges in large cities in the US and abroad in these areas, and what he has observed in the Chicago market in recent years. He will share his observation of direct and indirect stakeholders in the local market and their impact on government in the areas of energy and sustainability. He will share his perspective on local government’s approach to performance contracting and what he believes are some of the keys to mutual satisfaction and success for local government and energy service companies doing business in this market.

Sumit Ray, Vice President AEE Chicago Chapter, will present the following awards:

Energy Management Executive of the Year
Jeffrey A. Carroll, Siemens Industry, Inc.

Energy Professional Development
Fred Mazurski, USG Corporation

Energy Engineer of the Year 
Richard H. Wyton, Corporate Lighting Consultant

For the dinner, there is salad, one of three entrees, and a dessert: Chicken Picatt, Sautéed Breast of Chicken, Accented with Lemon Caper Sauce, Served with Rice Pilaf and Seasonal Vegetables; Steak & Potato, 10 oz.

Thursday, September 27, 2012, Evening 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Program: Tesla Motors Model S  

The Chicago Chapters of AEE and IEEE EMC Society cordially invites you, your associates, and friends to come to a joint meeting and learn about Tesla Motors "Model S" electric vehicle. Remember to bring your business cards for a chance to drive the Tesla Model S electric vehicle.

6:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Brian Doody, Tesla Motors, will discuss the "Model S electric vehicle, which is a five-passenger sedan with a lithium-ion battery pack and gets 300 miles between charges. The Tesla “Model S” is one of the most aerodynamic sedans ever built with all components designed to minimize friction and achieve the highest possible range. The electric vehicles are three times more efficient than internal combustion gas vehicles and doesn’t produce carbon dioxide emissions.

6:30 pm to 7:00 pm

One member from the AEE and IEEE Chicago Chapters will have an opportunity to test drive a Tesla "Model S" electric vehicle.

For direction please visit Map and driving directions. To make reservations, please RSVP Norm Hansen, AEE Chicago Chapter President

Wednesday, September 12, 2012, Evening 7:00 to 8:30 pm

Program: Why does my design fail EMC and How to fix it  

The AEE and IEEE EMC Society - Chicago Chapters cordially invites you, your associates and friends at this joint meeting to learn about EMC design principles 

6:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Dinner, Refreshments and Social hour:

7:30 pm to 8:30 pm





Jerry Meyerhoff, JDM LABS LLC, will be discussing the EMC principles and introducing - 4 quadrants of mechanisms , 3 elements of the actors , and 4 types of coupling. Case studies drawn from 6 designs are used to demonstrate the underlying EMC physics across the 4 quadrants for causes and cures.

Narratives present soft skills of teamwork and consulting persuasion. Analysis, measurement ,and creativity methods are highlighted. Solutions are generalized for applicability to multiple future designs.
