2 Members First Newsletter: All CTTC should receive a copy, E & P: Available for some committee meetings in NYC Internet available in all meeting rooms

3 New high profile standards published in 2013 Standard 90.1 Energy, non-residential Standard 62.1 Ventilation, non-residential Standard 62.2 Ventilation, residential Standard 55 Thermal Comfort

4 New approved standard projects Method of Determining the Energy Consumption Caused by General Ventilation Air-Cleaning Devices Method for Calculating Moist Air Thermodynamic Properties Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Sustainable Low-Rise Residential Buildings Methods of Test for Determining Overhead Circulator fan Data Standard for Measuring and Expressing Building Energy Performance in a Rating Program

5 Energy Position Document: Revision not accepted Commissioning Position Document: on hold Ammonia as a Refrigerant: Reaffirmed Committee started working to revise the PD. Indoor Combustion in Developing Countries: Committee established Airborne Infectious Diseases: Vote to accept Position Documents online at:

6 ASHRAE IAQ 2013 Conference, Vancouver, BC, Canada, October 15-18, 2013 EHC roadmap is currently being developed, which will include short, medium and long-term research priorities.

7 Encourage chapter members who cannot attend the bi-annual ASHRAE meetings to engage with TCs and become corresponding members. Quick TAC Facts: 3553 TC Volunteers total – 11% increase since TC Volunteers reside outside of U.S. & Canada 314 TC Volunteers are Young Engineers of ASHRAE (YEA) 70% of Technical Program in Denver sponsored by TCs Over 200 Handbook chapters are maintained by TCs committees committees

8 More than 13 new Research Proposal Solicitations TRP-1609 Defining the Capabilities, Needs and Current Limitations of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Operations and Maintenance for HVAC&R, TRP-1641, Effect of Unsaturated Flurocarbon Contaminants on the Reliability and Performance of HVAC&R Equipment TRP-1624, EFFECTIVE ENERGY-EFFICIENT CLASSROOM VENTILATION FOR TEMPERATE ZONES TRP-1673, REVISION OF THE ASHRAE HVAC DESIGN GUIDE FOR TALL COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS TRP-1712, DEVELOPMENT OF THE ASHRAE DESIGN GUIDE FOR DEDICATED OUTDOOR-AIR SYSTEMS.

9 Awarded new research projects RP-1450, TRANSPORT OF CONTAMINANTS FROM GARAGES ATTACHED OR INTEGRAL TO LOW-RISE RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS, was awarded to the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for a period of 18 months at a total cost to ASHRAE of $174,539. RP-1608, DEVELOPMENT OF LOAD-BASED METHOD OF TEST FOR LIGHT COMMERCIAL UNITARY HVAC, was awarded to Oklahoma State University for a period of 24 months at a total cost to ASHRAE of $128,302. RP-1629, TESTING AND MODELING ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF ACTIVE CHILLED BEAM SYSTEMS, was awarded to University of Colorado - Boulder for a period of 18 months at a total cost to ASHRAE of $140,259.

10 Quick RAC Facts: 79 TC experts volunteered to write WSs & RTARs in Year $164k & 20 months is the average cost & duration of ASHRAE Research Projects now 330 Technical Committee volunteers are monitoring progress on 62 active projects 55% of active research projects are being conducted at universities 845 ASHRAE Research Projects valued at $67.5 million started since 1960

11 A contract with United National Environment Programme (UNEP) to secure funding for TRP- 1634, Guide for Sustainable Refrigerated Facilities and Refrigeration Systems, is now finalized Recommended the Refrigeration Commissioning Guide be approved for publication
