Utah ASHRAE is joining forces with the Utah chapter of AEE (Association of Energy Engineers) for their annual Energy Champions Conference.

Please Note: This conference will take the place of our regular monthtly chapter meeting.

COST: For Utah Chapter ASHRAE members registration is covered by your annual chapter fees. Consequently, please only register if you are able to attend. If you are unsure ahead of time you can register the day of the event. For guests the registration fee is $50.00.

8:00 - 8:30: Registration / Continental Breakfast
8:30 - 9:00: Vendor Spotlight
9:00 - 9:50: Break Out Session #1
10:00 - 10:50: Break Out Session #2
10:50 - 11:30: Vendor Time
11:40 - 12:10: Lunch and Keynote Speaker
12:10 - 1:00: Energy Champion Awards
1:00 - 1:30: Vendor Time

There will be three different tracks for the Break Out Sessions.  For the HVAC track we have ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer Terry Townsend, P.E.  You are welcome to attend those presentations or any of the other presentations that interest you. Each session on the HVAC track qualifies for 1 PDH, the AEE tracks will provide CE credits. 

Terry TownsendTerry Townsend Biography:

Terry E. Townsend, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, is president, Townsend Engineering Inc., Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Panama City, Florida. In 2006-07, he served as president of ASHRAE, where he focused the Society’s efforts on The ASHRAE Promise: A Sustainable Future, highlighting ASHRAE’s work in sustainability in the building environment. His achievements as president include launching ASHRAE’s first ever certification program, accelerating and expanding the Advanced Energy Design Guide series, setting more stringent savings for ASHRAE’s energy standard, and proving resources on how ASHRAE can minimize the impact of its meetings on the environment.

HVAC Track Topics:

Advanced Energy Conservation and IEQ Design Guidance and Applications (1 PDH): Energy efficient buildings that do not provide proper IAQ and comfort for its occupants are really failures. This presentation goes through guidance in the AEDG series coupled with advanced guidance from Standards 90.1, 62.1 and 55 in order to provide the design team with tactics that must be integrated into sustainable buildings as we march forward to Net-Zero Energy facilities. The presentation will provide specific guidance for building types and climatic regions that attendees will be familiar with.

Energy Goals and Integrated Design (1 PDH): The realm of energy conservation, energy targets and high performance, sustainable buildings is presented in a succinct sequence for both architects and engineers. The basis for the presentation is how to implement an integrated design approach that achieves the energy and performance goals of an owner. Materials presented includes ASHRAE’s Energy Targets for Building Codes, ASHRAE’s Building Energy Quotient program, Building Systems’ Commissioning, successful applications of the design guidance provided in ASHRAE’s Advanced Energy Design Guides (AEDGs) for 30% and 50% savings over Building Code requirements, and how an integrated design approach is the vehicle by which “Net-Zero” energy facilities will be achieved. True “Net-Zero” applications, both nationally and internationally, will be presented along with the required ‘Technology Pathways’ for achieving Zero Energy and Beyond Buildings.

Steps to Making Existing Commercial Buildings More Efficient, Healthy and Comfortable (1 PDH): Even though the U.S. Building Codes are becoming more energy stringent, our country’s Energy Utilization Index (EUI) is rapidly increasing every year because only 5% of our commercial building stock is being built or renovated each year. This means that the remaining 95% of our commercial buildings are experiencing reduced energy performance each year. This trend in existing buildings can be changed by the implementation of a Technical (testing based) Retro-commissioning (RCx) program that incorporates technical energy audit procedures, measurements of building performance metrics, savings calculational procedures and corresponding financial analysis methodologies that building owners can understand and interpret for developing both short term and long term programs for building systems’ upgrades. Case studies are presented for various RCx projects that demonstrate the advantage of conducting a Technical RCx program and the merit of implementing an Ongoing Commissioning (OCx) program for a building owner to be able to maintain a sought level of building performance for an ongoing basis.
