Happy birthday Bluegrass ASHRAE!!! 36 years and going strong
Hope everyone can join us at the joint ASHRAE/AIA/USGBC seminar tomorrow titled "Real World Integrated Design". We have an awesome panel of speakers and topics that extremely relevant in today's industry. Additional information can be found at http://www.cvent.com/events/real-world-integrated-design/event-summary-a065045e31a64380b053217c85c00834.aspx?i=d11a5849-8724-4ef4-a0e2-0a0197776335

Have you ever wondered how you could get YOUR project published in the ASHRAE Journal or High Performance Building Magazine? It all starts with an application for the chapter technology award. Our board of governors will select a local winner and provide local recognition. Our winner is submited to regional, and regional selects a project to nominate for the society level award... which is the one that gets all the attention. Check out the 2013 winners and honorable mentions in this months Journal. Then download a short chapter application and get it into Eric or Lisa by April 15th, 2013.

Come on down to E-Day!


March Program - Combined Heat & Power

Join us March 6th at the Campbell House!

Combined Heat and Power is the simultaneous and sequential use of power and heat from the same fuel source. This presentation will explain ways to utilize heat that would otherwise be wasted in order to lower utility bills, increase equipment efficiency, improve reliability, and lower a facility’s carbon footprint.


February Program - Update on Refrigerants - Past, Present, and Future

Please join us for our February 6th program!

http://www.bluegrassashrae.org/events-schedule/2012-2013-events/february-2013-chapter-meeting/

In recent decades, the refrigeration and air conditioning sciences have been in a state of flux primarily because of the phase-out of ozone-depleting CFC and HCFC refrigerants, and secondarily because of environmental concerns related to the direct global warming impacts of some of the replacement refrigerants. Due to these concerns, there is significant worldwide interest in using substances that are naturally occurring in the biosphere as refrigerants, which are considered benign to the environment and are termed “natural working fluids”. Surprisingly, many of these substances were already used as refrigerants at the dawn of the refrigeration technology in the late 1800’s. Thus, when looking at the refrigerants of the future, it is essential to understand which substances have been used in past. This presentation provides a detailed review of the past and present refrigerants, and proposes refrigerants and their respective technologies that could be used in the future. An assessment of their characteristics related to choice of one versus another, and an identification of trends set by these choices will be made.


ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.
