ASHRAE, U.S. Department of Energy Renew Memorandum of Understanding
ATLANTA – Underscoring their commitment to improving the efficiency use
of energy, ASHRAE and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have renewed
a memorandum of understanding.
The agreement was signed by ASHRAE President Tom Phoenix and David Danielson, assistant secretary, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, DOE. It represents an update of an agreement last signed in 2011.
Together ASHRAE and the DOE agree to further their long-term relationship by working cooperatively to improve the efficient use of energy, improve the visible and widespread use of renewable energy sources and to minimize the impact of energy use on the environment.
“By renewing our memorandum of understanding, ASHRAE and DOE pledge to combine our collective energy conservation efforts,” Phoenix said. “Our continued work with DOE will allow us to improve on our efforts in achieving substantial energy savings without sacrificing comfort, air quality or productivity.”
ASHRAE and the DOE are committed to working together toward the following goals:
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a global
society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for
the built environment. The Society and its more than 50,000 members
worldwide focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air
quality, refrigeration and sustainability. Through research, standards
writing, publishing, certification and continuing education, ASHRAE
shapes tomorrow’s built environment today. More information can be
