ATLANTA – ASHRAE has announced its next High Performance Buildings Conference will take place April 7-8, 2014, Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco, Calif. 

Building upon the 2012 High Performance Buildings Conference and 2009 Net-Zero Energy Conference, the Conference seeks to advance the industry’s efforts to accomplish a true high-performance built environment.   

“The 2014 HPB Conference provides a unique opportunity for dialog among attendees to facilitate understanding of current indoor environmental quality and energy saving efforts and to share best practices for achieving high-performance buildings,” Kent Peterson, Conference chair, said. 

The conference topics provide a comprehensive overview of high performance building design with a focus on strategies in several areas, Peterson said.  New subject areas include water efficiency, building occupant behavior, new building technologies and indoor environmental quality.  In addition, there is increased emphasis on lighting/daylighting and the building envelope.

A case study-type poster session on “Measured Performance” and “Modeled Performance” is presented.

The conference format will include invited speakers as well as a call for presenters and a call for posters, which will be announced in the fall.  Additional information can be found at www.hpbmagazine.org/hpb2014.

Attendees will be able to realize the synergy required between indoor environmental quality and energy savings through advanced HPB design through the conference as well as network with other HPB professionals, Peterson said. 

The conference is being presented by ASHRAE’s High Performing Buildings magazine, the industry’s premier source for measured performance of practices and technologies to promote better buildings.

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members 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.
