    Did you know that ASHRAE Guideline 36 retrofits can save 25-45% in whole building energy use and are cost effective, debunking conventional wisdom that controls retrofits are not cost-effective? Webinar Recorded: January 25, 2023

    During this webinar, we introduce ASHRAE Guideline 36-2021, High-Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems. This guideline is the industry's first attempt to standardize building control sequences and promote best-in-class sequences for energy savings and easy implementation. We will introduce its intent, benefits, scope, and the stakeholders involved in designing and implementing ASHRAE Guideline 36. Then we will highlight the key control sequence concepts in this guideline, including AHU static pressure resets through trim and respond, dual-max controls for VAV terminal unit with reheat, and Automated Fault Detection and Diagnostics (AFDD). We will also discuss how to screen your buildings to see if they are a good candidate for a controls retrofit leveraging Guideline 36. Completed and ongoing ASHRAE Guideline 36 field demonstrations sponsored by California Energy Commission (CEC), NYSERDA, and Minnesota Department of Commerce (MN DOC) will be featured.

    Your expert panelists:
    1.) Joe Zhou, Director of Research and Innovation, Slipstream
    2.) Hwakong Cheng, Principal, Taylor Engineers
    3.) Gwelen Paliaga, Senior Director, Research and Technology, TRC

    Building materials have long been studied to learn about their impacts on building durability. But only recently have the materials and systems been examined to look at fire performance as well. Whether you are designing, constructing, or inspecting buildings, you will want to understand the material safety of high-performance homes. Join experts from across the country to gain insights into efficient construction materials and systems we are most likely to see in the coming years. Webinar January 17, 2023

    2023 and beyond will usher in unprecedented growth for energy-efficient buildings. If you are a building owner or developer, you may be considering constructing or retrofitting your building with efficient materials. If you are a code official, you are likely to be inspecting buildings constructed with different materials and systems. And if you are involved in any aspect of building fire safety, you probably have questions about the safety of these efficient building materials. Building materials have long been studied to learn about their impacts on building durability. But only recently have the materials and systems been examined to look at fire performance as well. Join experts from across the country to gain insights into efficient construction materials and systems we are most likely to see in the coming years. 

    You can expect to hear:

    • Types of efficient building materials including spray foam and structural insulated panels (SIPs).
