ATLANTA - American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) members looking to assist with national energy code deployment and compliance can apply to a new fellowship being sponsored by ASHRAE.

The association is seeking members to apply for a fellowship with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The selected person would be placed in the DOE’s Office of Building Technologies, Building Energy Codes Program, and would last from 12 to 18 months, depending on the office’s needs and the qualifications of the applicant.

“This fellowship will give an engineer or scientist a unique opportunity to participate directly in the policy implementation process, all while providing a valuable public service,” said Doug Read, ASHRAE’s program director of government affairs.

“This enriching experience will enable the fellow to bring back to their employers an insider’s perspective on government decision making that can contribute significantly to the mission and vision of the organization.”

The placed individual will work in one of the following areas:

• Code compliance, working to establish three compatible template processes and procedures for state evaluation of state code compliance;

• Residential duct test training, including preparing training materials for the new duct testing requirements in the 2009 IECC, including strategic options for practical code enforcement and compliance;

• Assessment of the impact of updating state energy codes, including preparing reports of the impact of updating state building energy code to meet Standard 90.1-2010 based on EnergyPlus analysis of benchmark buildings and cost databases.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate in Building Technologies Program staff meetings, Building Energy Codes monthly deployment meetings, the Energy Codes National Workshops, and the building energy Codes Program review.

A minimum stipend will be provided. Applications are now being accepted and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
