ASHRAE's upcoming webcast, titled Buildings in Balance: IEQ and Energy Efficiency, will broadcast live on April 17, 2014, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm EDT. This FREE webcast is brought to you by the Chapter Technology Transfer Committee.

"This webcast will identify the link between energy efficiency and Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) through the integrated design process," said Andy Cochrane, Chair of the CTTC Webcast Ad Hoc Committee. "Participants will be able to recognize the importance of the four cornerstones of IEQ and explain how system selection can benefit energy efficiency and IEQ. The presenters will describe best practices for Performance Measurement Protocols and explain the role of Post Occupancy Evaluation in fine-tuning building performance. Viewers will also learn about the common design, commissioning, and operational pitfalls of IEQ. 'Buildings in Balance' will describe how energy and efficiency can be achieved, without compromising IEQ."
