  1. Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  2. Broadening Horizons As a technical society, how can we broaden the application of our technology to better serve humanity and promote a sustainable world? Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  3. My Personal Journey • Grew up in a small community • Wanted to be a mechanical engineer at an early age • Joined ASHRAE with a very narrow vision • ASHRAE has given me opportunities to: • Increase my technical knowledge • Meet the best and brightest persons in the built environment • Solve problems with people from all parts of the globe Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  4. Our Heritage “We have problems relating to air pollution, water pollution, thermal pollution and noise pollution among other things. But air, water, heat and noise are just the things ASHRAE members cut their teeth on. We cannot simply sit on the sidelines. We have so much talent that it is our responsibility, indeed our duty as professionals to lend our aid.” -Stan GilmanASHRAE President 1971-72 Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  5. ASHRAE Today • Celebrating our 118th Anniversary • Diverse Society: • 53,500+ Members • 132 Countries • 176 Chapters • 43 Sections • 327 Student Branches • 53 Associate Societies • 2,500 Members Active on Society Committees Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  7. Broadening Horizons It is vital to connect ASHRAE beyond HVAC&R. Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  8. Technology Balanced for: • Climate • Culture • Economic Conditions • Resources • Technical Education • Infrastructure Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  9. Technology • Keep users in mind • Keep it simple • Latest technologies? • Sophisticated solutions? • Complicated buildings? • Focus on impact Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  10. Applications We need to: • Use innovation that works • Promote affordable solutions • Use global expertise • Meet local needs Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  11. Applications We have: • Complicated controls systems • Systems with over-pumping • VFDs running at constant speed • Thermostats few can program Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  12. Applications Collaborate with lenders on energy retrofits • Provide guidance for historical buildings Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  13. Applications • Cold Climate Conference • Calgary, Canada • ASHRAE/REHVA/SCANVAC • November 2012 • Tropical Climate Conference – Shanghai, China • CAR/ASHRAE Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  14. Applications • Implement Refrigerant Management Plan • 2012 ASHRAE/NIST Refrigerants Conference:  Moving Towards Sustainability • October 2012 Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  15. Applications Regionally serving local needs • Workshop for cost-effective simple and efficient systems for economically challenged economies Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  16. People: The Solution • ASHRAE members • Associate Society Alliance members • Federations Collaboration extends the impact of our efforts Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  17. People: The Solution • We must be more inclusive to accomplish our vision • Presidential Member Ron Jarnagin challenged us to play a leadership role in bringing members of our industry together • Integrated design solutions is key • Owners and operators • Engineers • Manufacturers and representatives • Architects • Contractors • Commissioning personnel • Service and maintenance personnel Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  18. People: The Solution Student design competition • Applied Engineering Challenge • Portable transport of pharmaceuticals, organs, etc. using renewable energy • Developing countries Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  19. People: The Solution Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) Leadership weekend August in Sri Lanka Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  20. People: The Solution Chapter/section involvement with local communities • Community Sustainability Project program • Local sustainability projects • www.ashrae.org/community Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  21. People: The Solution K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM): • Involve teachers • Help parents guide students • Coordinate efforts with other organizations Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  22. People: The Solution • “As a Society we should be interested in legislation for the protection of health and comfort” • Walter S. Timmis, ASHVE President 1919 • Local government activities • Codes and standards education • Translation of our technology • Technology and standards training • Code enforcement agencies outreach • STEM advocacy Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  23. People: The Solution Engineering for Change– applying technology for a better world • Engineering Societies working together • Members connecting and collaborating • Solving challenges & sharing knowledge • Improving the quality of life • www.engineeringforchange.org Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons

  24. What Can You Do? • Focus on the greatest impact • Match technology with need • Affordable regional technologies • Benefit our communities and ourselves Broadening ASHRAE’s Horizons
