April 30, 2013: ASHRAE Annual Conference Features New Research Summit
The technical program kicks off early Sunday, June 23, with interactive programs and a networking coffee break. The technical program includes such tracks as Building Energy Modeling vs. Measurement and Verification; Renewable and Alternative Energy Sources; and the Mile-High Efficiency and Equipment track. The Integrated Project Delivery mini-conference, which takes place Sunday-Monday, presents success stories and lessons learned. The technical program runs June 23-26.
In addition, a newly created Research Summit — which comprises a major portion of the technical program with some 30 sessions scheduled, 22 of which are paper-based sessions — brings together researchers to present and discuss the latest research results, new research techniques, and forecasts of future research directions.
ASHRAE Learning Institute offers seven in-depth training courses including a new Professional Development Seminar, “Operations and Maintenance of High-Performance Buildings,” and a new Short Course, “Optimization of HVAC Systems and Their Components.”
Technical tours include the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Pepsi Center Stadium, Solar Technology Acceleration Center (SolarTAC), and the Denver Zoo. General tours feature Colorado Springs, the Platte Riverwalk, Red Rocks and Coors Brewery, and Boulder, Colo.
