Donald Newell
Director of Energy Services
EMCOR Mechanical and Facilities Services

As director of energy services for EMCOR’s national mechanical and facilities services division, Mr. Newell supports EMCOR’s commitment to reduce clients’ energy consumption and associated impact on the environment. With a practical background in the engineering, installation, and commissioning of high-performance HVAC systems, Mr. Newell’s goal is to identify, evaluate, and then support implementation of projects that truly “make sense” for a client’s business.

Mr. Newell has had several articles published on a variety of technical topics, including green-building, practical energy evaluations, indoor environmental quality, air filtration performance, optimizing centralized chilled water plants, and airflow measurement and adjusting. He continues to present classes on energy optimization in existing HVAC systems, while also developing internal standards for both engineering and systems commissioning.

Mr. Newell received a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering from Rutgers University. He is a licensed professional engineer in New Jersey and New York. He has obtained his certification as an energy manager and as a green building engineer from the Association of Energy Engineers, and as a testing and balancing supervisor (air and hydronics) and as a building systems commissioning administrator from NEBB. His professional memberships include ASHRAE and AEE. He is also a former President for MAEBA.
