Ricson Chude is a professional engineer working for Southern California Edison (SCE) in the Engineering Project Management team of the Engineering Services group.
He currently supports SCE’s Energy Efficiency Programs by supervising engineering firms that perform technical analysis of customer submitted energy efficiency projects such as the Optimization of Industrial Processes, Compressed Air and Refrigeration Systems Retrofits, Design of High Performance Buildings, and Retro-commissioning (RCx) of HVAC systems.
His direct experience in the energy efficiency field comes from past work done with both Electric and Gas Utility Demand Side Management Programs and independent collaboration with Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) and Environmental Consulting Firms to solve customer energy efficiency challenges. He’s area of focus are in field energy audits of industrial and commercial buildings, computer based energy simulation, and the development and assessment of energy management plans.
During his time at SCE, Ricson managed the development, testing, and deployment of several online applications and energy simulation tools currently in use by field reps and engineers alike to scope and document energy savings potential of projects. He’s also authored several technical white papers that support SCE’s Regulatory filings with the California Public Utilities Commission.
Ricson is committed to shaping the policies and standards impacting energy efficiency and the built environment. He currently serves on the President Elect of the Southern California Chapter of the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and at the national level joined ASHRAE’s newly formed Multidisciplinary Task Group - Avoided Source Energy Consumption, in addition to Technical Committee 7.6 Building Energy Performance.
He’s also currently serving on the board of directors of the National Society of Black Engineers’ (NSBE) – Energy SIG, was a past member of the RESNET Software Accuracy Working Group, and past Regional Chair for USGBC’s Green Schools Program.
He’s presented the benefits and challenges of deploying demand side management to small and large audiences, addressing the concerns of engineers, contractors, building owners, and individual consumers.
