The MoU was signed by Darryl Boyce, President-Elect, ASHRAE; Jeff Littleton, Executive Vice President, ASHRAE; Mitch Clemente, President, ASPE, and Billy Smith, ASPE Executive Director/CEO, the communiqué said. The agreement defines parameters on how the two societies will collaborate more closely, to continue furthering and promoting the advancements of a more sustainable built-environment, the communiqué further said. These include but are not limited to: general advocacy, research, technical committee coordination, joint conferences and meetings, training and education programs, publication distribution and chapter collaboration, the communiqué added.

Sheila J. Hayter, President, ASHRAE, said: “We are excited about exploring collaborative ventures with ASPE. Many ASHRAE members work in firms that provide a full spectrum of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services. The water-energy nexus in buildings is becoming more pronounced, as we push buildings to perform using integrated building design tools and techniques.”

Commenting on the partnership, Smith said: “Working with other professional societies in the broader engineering community is critical in today’s fast-paced world of evolving technologies and engineering methods. We look forward to working together with ASHRAE to promote ongoing education, best practices, networking and new technologies for a more sophisticated and sustainable indoor environment.”
