Event will have overview of high-performance building design with focus on strategies
Presenters and posters are being sought for ASHRAE’s High Performance Buildings Conference, which will take place on April 7 and 8, 2014 at Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco, California. Announcing this, ASHRAE highlighted that abstracts for presentations are due by October 25, while poster PDFs are due by February 21, 2014. Additional information can be found at www.hpbmagazine.org/hpb2014, the announcement added.
According to ASHRAE, the conference programme will have a mix of invited speakers and presenters. In addition, there will be a poster session on “Measured Building Performance” and “Modeled Building Performance.”
ASHRAE has listed the following tracks for which it is seeking presentations and posters:
- Building Envelope
- Building Occupant Behaviour
- Building Performance Modelling
- Building Performance Measurement
- Case Studies and Lesson Learned
- Indoor Environmental Quality Strategies
- Low Energy Techniques
- Market Value (Return on Investment)
- New Building Technologies
- Operating for High Performance
- Plug Load Reduction Strategies
- Water Efficiency Strategies
The conference topics, said ASHRAE, provided a comprehensive overview of high-performance building design with a focus on strategies in several areas, with new subject areas being water efficiency, building occupant behaviour, new building technologies and indoor environmental quality. In addition, there will be an increased emphasis on lighting/daylighting and the building envelope, it revealed.
The conference is being presented by ASHRAE’s High Performing Buildings magazine, ASHRAE said.
“We would like to see a balance of presentations showing innovation, proven methods for improving building operation resulting in deep energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality, measured performance and HPB case studies demonstrating new technologies,” Kent Peterson, Conference Chair, said. “We are seeking posters of designed or built buildings that balance high performance building attributes of energy efficiency, water savings and indoor environmental quality.”
