Existing Buildings Highlighted at ASHRAE Meeting
July 13, 2009

The need to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings was highlighted at the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) 2009 Annual Conference held in Louisville, Ky. At the meeting, ASHRAE launched the prototype of its Building Energy Quotient building energy labeling program, introduced a year-long focus on existing buildings and kicked off the Society’s most highly anticipated certification program to-date, Commissioning Process Management Professional. Some 1,530 attendees came together to support the Society’s mission of advancing HVAC&R to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world.

Gordon Holness, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, Life Member, was inducted as the Society’s president for 2009-10. Through his presidential theme, Sustaining Our Future by Rebuilding Our Past, Mr. Holness addresses energy efficiency in existing buildings.

ASHRAE will hold its 2010 Winter Conference, January 23rd-27th in Orlando, accompanied by the AHR Expo, January 25th-27th.
