ASHRAE & BIM Update

Gordon Holness, President Elect, ASHRAE - As we struggle through these times of accelerating energy costs and concerns for climate change, it is important to remember that buildings consume 40% of all energy use in the United States and 76% of all electrical use. Information technology, whether illustrated by BIM, smart meters, smart grids or intelligent control systems, can help us monitor and control energy use and ultimately save both energy and cost. ASHRAE's end goal is to provide the technology for net zero energy buildings - "buildings which, on an annual basis, use no more energy than is provided by on-site renewable energy sources." Stay tuned for continuing developments.
