The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) formalizing the organizations' relationship.
The MOU was signed by 2020-21 ASHRAE President Charles E. Gulledge III, P.E., and NASEO Executive Director David Terry, during a virtual signing ceremony Nov. 20. The agreement outlines how ASHRAE and NASEO will work cooperatively to promote the advancements of a more sustainable built environment through HVAC&R technologies and their applications.
Areas of collaboration include government advocacy; joint conferences and meetings; consistent leadership communication; publication development and distribution; education and professional development; technical activities coordination; and research.
"NASEO's well-established relationships with state energy offices will serve as a bridge to bring ASHRAE's unparalleled technical expertise in HVAC&R systems to improve the resiliency, sustainability and health of our built environment," said Gulledge. "Agreements like this serve the interests of both organizations and leverage our collective resources to support sustainable building practices where the benefits are felt on a large scale."
"NASEO is thrilled to continue our constructive partnership with ASHRAE," added Terry. "ASHRAE's deep expertise in indoor air quality, high-performing and grid-interactive buildings, and workforce development resonate with many State Energy Offices, especially as they navigate cross-cutting challenges to public health, the environment, and our economy."
