ASHRAE will provide two exclusive courses during CLIMA 2022. Please note that these courses are not included in your CLIMA 2022 ticket and require separate registration. You can register for the courses via the ASHRAE website.

This course is based on the new ASHRAE Cold-Climate Buildings Design Guide, 2nd edition, and the forthcoming ASHRAE Hot-Climate Buildings Design Guide. It also references the work and guidance of ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force and Task Force for Building Decarbonization.

There are several special considerations for very cold and very hot climates: remoteness, HVAC function (the need for maintenance, repairs – frost bite in cold, heat stroke in hot), reliable supply of fuels, high energy use (heat in winter, coolth in summer), low to high humidity’s, freeze protection, equipment overheating and the need to consider how impending climate change will increase these requirements in the future. Engineers must design HVAC systems which can operate effectively and reliably throughout these conditions whilst ensuring system efficiency, energy efficiency, low GHG emissions; while adhering to the new guidance that has been published to reduce risks of airborne infection during pandemic threats; and while meeting net zero energy targets and carbon reduction goals. Guidance on what provisions should be made now will be covered.
