Dubai, UAE, 23 July 2018: There will be a move to expand ASHRAE’s role in IEQ, said Sheila J. Hayter, President, ASHRAE. Hayter added that this will be done by incorporating “wellness” into ASHRAE’s technical activities, working with other organisations to link the built-environment to human wellness and happiness and providing the tools and resources to move the built-environment into the new energy future, without compromising the health and wellness of occupants.

“Stakeholders,” Hayter said, “now understand that there also needs to be a way to give the occupants feedback on their behaviour to obtain a good indoor environment with reduced energy use.” Hayter stressed that understanding occupant behavior will help the industry “improve designs, reduce energy use in buildings and better meet occupants’ needs”.
