June 25 - June 29, 2016
St. Louis, Missouri, United States

The Conference Technical program features a track on Smart Building Systems, which addresses the revolution in information technology applied to the built environment. Weather and time of day utility rate forecasting, distributed sensors and remote monitoring and control are all included. Also taking place is the fourth annual Research Summit, which reports results on many aspects of ASHRAE-related research.

The seminar, “Residential Building Smart Devices and Data: Improving Energy Use Insights and Performance Evaluation,” takes place June 29.

These new technologies benefit homeowners in many ways, including energy savings, better comfort, improved security/safety and improved knowledge of performance of homes.

Speaker Howard Chong says homeowners, however, would summarize the strongest benefit in one word: “Convenience, convenience, convenience. Homeowners don’t have to look up their data through paper bills, computers are really good at keeping track of data. A big complaint from homeowners about energy audits is that they aren’t convenient.”

Tracks are:
Advances in Refrigeration Systems and Alternative Refrigerants
Fundamentals and Applications
HVAC Systems and Equipment
Smart Building Systems/Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics
Indoor Environment: Health, Comfort, Productivity
Professional Skills Beyond Engineering
Renewable Energy Systems and Net Zero Buildings
