ASHRAE Conference focusing on sustainable seminars

At its 2010 Winter Conference, ASHRAE will focus seminars on energy management, sustainability, code compliance, and commissioning.



In order to equip engineers with the knowledge to stop energy loss in buildings, a full-day professional development seminar called "Energy Management in New and Existing Buildings: A Sustainable Activity", will be held in conjunction with the ASHRAE Learning Institute at the 2010 Winter Conference.

The seminar is an expansion of the popular short course on energy management guided by Technical Committee 7.6 and weaves together energy management principles of the ASHRAE Handbook, ENERGY STAR guidelines, and the practical experience of successful energy managers.

"Energy Management in New and Existing Buildings" relies on case-example exercises that use energy data and facilities information to reinforce presentation material. The hands-on approach allows attendees to gain skills in analyzing the state of energy management at their own organizations and plan steps to enhance it.

The ENERGY STAR management flow chart will play a crucial role in guiding the presentation. The flow chart will help participants gain skills in extracting information from energy data and knowledge of basic tools like ENERGY STAR's Portfolio Manager.

In addition to helping participants manage the energy use of their respective organizations, the seminar will offer the opportunity to earn six professional development credits/American Institute of Architecture learning units or 0.6 continuing education units.

The ASHRAE Learning Institute will also feature the following seminars: Complying with ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2007 ; Complying with ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 ; Data Center Energy Efficiency ; and The Commissioning Process in New & Existing Buildings . Registration information for both the 2010 Winter Conference and the ASHRAE Learning Institute can be found at visit
