Ian Ball is a building engineer and team leader of commissioning services with TST. He started his career in 1991 as a construction engineer in Hong Kong. In 1994, he returned to Quebec and continued his career as a project manager on heat recovery projects and was involved in their design, installation, load calculations, controls, commissioning and monitoring. Between 2004 and 2011, Ian worked on numerous projects dealing with energy efficiency, commissioning and LEED certification. He has successfully obtained over $2M of financial incentives from various energy efficiency grant programs for his clients. In 2008 he received a Laureate (1st place) from the AQME Energia competition in the category existing buildings energy efficiency projects. Ian is a CBCP and also a member of the Mechanical Sub-Committee for the CSA Standard Z-320 for Building Commissioning and the Building Commissioning Association Eastern Canadian Chapter. He has successfully delivered numerous workshops for the D2$ program since 2009 (12 workshops, 6 in past 5 years).
Song formerly served as an Associate Director at the Energy Systems Lab of Texas A&M University, where he directed an internationally leading group of researchers, engineers, technicians and graduate students implementing building energy efficiency projects with an annual R&D/consulting budget over $8 million. He was the lead Principal Investigator for a comprehensive energy management program on the Texas A&M university campus, for which cumulative savings exceeded $90 million over a period of 17 years. Teamed with Dr. W. Dan Turner, the two personally walked through and assessed more than 600 buildings and campuses globally during the past three decades, leading cutting-edge data-driven energy conservation and asset/resource management programs resulted in measured and documented avoided costs and energy savings over $300 million. They co-developed DOE/AEE’s MCBCP® certification course and AEE’s CBCP® International & Domestic certification courses. Song is also on World Bank’s roster of energy efficiency experts.
In 2010, Song and Dr. Turner co-founded the Theory of Nodal Partners, which reflects their view of today’s world, IT, infrastructure, energy and utility’s supplies, transportation, storage and consumption, smart grid of everything, interplay and readiness.
Currently, as the Technical Advisor at Austin, TX-based Bee (Building energy efficiency, BeeUSA.com), Song consults and lectures worldwide in the scientific fields of monitoring & platform-based life-cycle building commissioning, master planning, asset and resource management, ESPC, UESC and PACE independent 3rd party M&V and integrated quality assurance, energy efficiency, O&M, sustainability and resiliency, smart buildings/campus/grid, CHP, TES, district-, micro-, and nano-grids, big data analytics, blockchain, quantum, and portable nuclear and hydrogen theories, and fog intelligence.
