Why Buildings Matter and the Role of ASHRAE 90.1

Speaker:  Chris Mathis - ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer

Why Buildings Matter and the Role of ASHRAE 90.1

As our flagship standard for the minimum energy efficiency for buildings (except low-rise residential) ASHRAE 90.1 represents the Standard of Care for all certifying professionals serving the building industry.  The latest version of that standard, 2013, contains dramatic changes that all certifying professionals should know.  In this lecture, attendees will be provided a renewed perspective on the importance of our buildings. Attendees will be learn about the connections between buildings and their energy use and other social and environmental objectives.  We will discuss peak power, water consumption, carbon emissions and other connected issues.  Attendees will learn about some of the latest changes to 90.1, especially in those critical areas often overlooked by HVAC professionals – the revised building envelope provisions – as well as other changes, and will be challenged to update their knowledge and understanding of the Standard and its role in delivering better buildings.  The presenter served 10 years on the 90.1 development committee and remains an active participant in its development.
