“With the global movement towards sustainable energy, the HVAC&R industry is ever-changing,” said Carrie Anne Monplaisir, chair of the 2019 Annual Conference. “We continue to face new challenges as we adapt our designs, codes, and technology to fit this constantly changing criteria. The 2019 ASHRAE Annual Conference aims to address these challenges, and offer best practices, lessons learned, and innovative design strategies to be applied in a wide range of topics."
The much-anticipated Commissioning New & Existing Buildings track will address topics surrounding low energy and zero energy buildings as they become more prevalent.
The Modeling Throughout the Building Life Cycle track will examine how the demands of energy efficient operation brought about the need for modeling of part-load operation for a variety of off-design conditions.
