ASHRAE has announced that it has recently formed a task force to address climate change through responsible decarbonization strategies for the built environment.
The ASHRAE Task Force for Building Decarbonization (TFBD) has been established to develop technical resources and provide leadership and guidance in mitigating the negative carbon impact of buildings on the environment and the inhabitants of our planet.
“In a similar vein to how ASHRAE took the lead in responding to the energy crisis of the 1970s era and defined the energy efficiency journey, ASHRAE has much to offer with respect to paths for responsible decarbonization strategies,” said 2020-21 ASHRAE President Charles E. Gulledge III, P.E., HBDP. “The challenges of decarbonization are complex, but this task force is positioned to offer actionable technical guidance to improve how building are built and operated.”
The specific responsibilities of the task force include the following:
Members of the ASHRAE Task Force for Building Decarbonization are as follows:
