As the phaseout of the high global warming impact substances used in HVAC/R equipment ramps up, research on suitable alternatives continues.
While the importance of building energy performance metrics to reduce energy use is accepted worldwide, there is no single generally accepted definition of that metric. Consequently, ASHRAE is working to define one clear, logical metric to move the building industry toward producing net zero energy buildings by 2030.
A new student design competition from ASHRAE is focused on taking advantage of today’s technology to provide simple, affordable solutions that benefit people around the world.
Trends for individual components supplement the previous trend information, providing an understanding of the forces driving overall information technology equipment (ITE) power consumption.
The standard was first published in 1981, and the need for its requirements has grown as more attention is paid to improving energy in current building stock. Public input to the proposed changes is being sought from May 4 until June 18.
The International Green Construction Code has been designed and released as the path to safe, sustainable, economical construction.
A proposed change to the ventilation rate procedure in ASHRAE’s indoor air quality standard is open for review after changes were made based on public input last year.
National Engineers Week (February 19-25) celebrates the contributions that engineers make to our society and encourages engineering as a career path among young students by promoting pre-college literacy in math and science.
Achieving optimal HVAC performance depends on all stakeholders in a facility’s life cycle.
Five of the top six winning projects of the 2011 ASHRAE Technology Awards are located in Canada; the lone U.S. facility is in Kansas City, MO.
