Technical session:

HVAC Load Calculations

Space load calculation results are the basis for heating and air-conditioning systems and components.  The sizing and design of all HVAC equipment and distribution systems is dependent on accurate heating and cooling load calculations for both spaces and the systems serving those spaces.  We’ll review the physics of heat transfer, thermal resistance calculation of building assemblies, heat transfer through building assemblies, internal heat gains, and system level loads

Speaker: Jesse Fisher, P.E., CPD


Main Meeting:

Lake and Sea Water Cooling Projects

Low temperature water from seawater and deep lakes is becoming an option as a heat sink for buildings and processes. As part of meeting ASHRAE’s goal for buildings to achieve net?zero energy use by the year 2030, including energy?intensive mission critical facilities, designers must choose the most beneficial options available to them. This presentation reviews the benefits and drawbacks of using rivers and lakes as heat sinks for the modern data center with the need for high reliability. 

Speaker: John C. Peterson, PE, ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer

Mr. Peterson is a consultant, manager and technical author specializing in operations and efficiency, primarily with data centers and other mission critical facilities. He is a registered professional engineer with experience ranging through all project and program phases from initiation to closing.
