Formerly known as the ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference
August 11, 2016
The need for practical building modeling applications along with the need to transform the design approach to a collaborative process from a sequential process will be explored in an upcoming specialty conference organized by ASHRAE.
Donation will help fund research of 2L mildly flammable refrigerants
August 1, 2016
Johnson Controls has donated $100,000 to ASHRAE Research. The donation will help fund research that supports the development of safety standards regarding the use of mildly flammable, low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants.
Nearly 90 percent of the chapters have undergone revision
July 7, 2016
ASHRAE has announced revisions to the majority of chapters, including major updates related to thermal storage and district heating and cooling, in its newly published 2016 ASHRAE Handbook – HVAC Systems and Equipment.
A newly published smart grid standard from ASHRAE and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) aims to help transform the fundamental structure of the electrical grid by combining it with an intelligent infrastructure, which will enable the two-way flow of both information and electricity.
New technologies benefit homeowners in many ways, including energy savings, better comfort
June 22, 2016
The use of smart devices and the data insights they provide will be examined in a seminar at the ASHRAE 2016 Annual Conference taking place June 25-29 at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel and America’s Center Convention Complex.
Conference provides a forum for discussion of the latest research and development
June 16, 2016
