Research Strategic Plan2010-2015 Navigation for a Sustainable Future
Mission & Overview • 11 Strategic goals • Technical Challenges limiting • Building performance • Energy efficiency • IEQ • Coordinating efforts amount various TCs
www.ashrae.org/research Goal Highlights
Goal #1 • Maximize the actual operational energy performance • General industry & decision-making • Design & Construction • Operation & Maintenance
Needed Research for Goal #1 • Application of BIM for design, commissioning, operations & maintenance • Quantify energy saving from various measures • Development of automated tools to support commissioning
Goal #3 • To significantly reduce energy consumption for HVAC&R, water & lighting in homes • Educate homeowners on waste and improvement • Improve equipment rating methods
Needed Research for Goal #3 • Better control systems • Energy efficiency guide for existing homes • Improved understanding of home systems
Goal #7 • Development of tools, procedures & methods for designing low-energy buildings • Reduce ‘trial & error” simulations • Easier to use modeling tools
Needed Research for Goal #7 • Whole building simulation tools • Models & design procedures for natural & hybrid ventilation systems • Simple rating tool to examine/compare shading/glazing & weather conditions
