ASHRAE Funds Research for Building Maintenance

 
ASHRAE is rolling out research programs designed to facilitate building maintenance

Newly funded research by ASHRAE will focus on developing building operations and maintenance, energy efficiency, and comfort and sustainability.

Research Project 1633 “Data and Interfaces for Advanced Building Maintenance and Operation” will result in development of standard data-driven metrics, dashboards and interfaces for advanced building operation and management.

“Analyzing and interpreting building performance data is critical to the success of high performance buildings,” says Stephen Samouhos, Ph.D., principal investigator. “This research will help fill a void in standards literature by establishing data-driven metrics, interfaces and dashboards, organized by building type, that clearly quantify and communicate building performance to a diverse set of building stakeholders.”

Research Project 1633 is one of three projects totaling $430,000, approved by ASHRAE at the 2011 Winter Conference.  The other two projects are:

The other two projects approved at the Winter Conference: 

  •  1580-RP, “Study of Input Parameters for Risk Assessment of 2L Flammable Refrigerants in Residential Air Conditioning and Small Commercial Refrigeration Applications,” sponsored by TC 3.1, Refrigerants and Secondary Coolants; awarded to Navigant Consulting Inc.
  •  1613-RP, “Update Climatic Design Data in Chapter 14 of the 2013 Handbook, Fundaments,” sponsored by TC 4.2, Climatic Information, awarded to Numerical Logistics Inc.
