In 2015 Will became a Certified Energy Manager (C.E.M.). Will has designed and been in charge of numerous refrigeration system designs for large retail clients. This experience encompasses different types of refrigeration racks, CO2 and Glycol secondary overfeed systems, traditional direct expansion (DX) loop and circuited systems, and air/water/evap cooled condensers.
