ASHRAE Insights February 2018
ASHRAE Honors Outstanding Members
ASHRAE recognized the outstanding achievements and contributions of
members to furthering energy efficiency
in the HVAC&R industry during the 2018
ASHRAE Winter Conference in Chicago.
The awards and their recipients are
highlighted in this issue.
F. Paul Anderson Award
Steven T. Taylor, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE received the F.
Paul Anderson Award. The
award is given for notable
achievement of outstanding
services performed in the
HVAC&R field. The award,
ASHRAE's highest given for technical
achievement, is named in memory of Presidential Member F. Paul Anderson, who was
a pioneer in the study of environmental
conditions for comfort.
E.K. Campbell Award of Merit
Julia Keen, Ph.D., P.E.,
Fellow ASHRAE, received
the E.K. Campbell Award
of Merit. The award honors
an individual for outstanding
service and achievement in
teaching and is presented by
the Life Members Club.
John F. James International
Timothy C. Dwyer, C.Eng.,
Fellow ASHRAE, received the
John F. James International
Award. The award recognizes
a member who has done the
most to enhance the Society's
Ice Industry Goes to the Birds
"Under the heading 'Ice Water for Pigeons,' a dispatch from Boston recently
appeared in a New York newspaper
'Boston's pigeons may be seen each
morning getting a drink of water from
the cakes of ice left on curbings and in
doorways for water coolers in the various offices.'
"The sort of conditions which result in this type of publicity have no
tendency to help the water cooler
business or the ice business in general
and have prompted the office bard to
break forth in the following lyrics.
... Keep the bird bath in the garden!
Shield the ice in other words;
Don't get that kind of publicity-
Keep the industry safe from the birds!"
-From "Ice Water vs. Pigeons"

New AEDG Focuses on K-12 Schools
A new publication is now available to
empower owners, contractors, consulting
engineers, architects, designers and administrators of K-12 school buildings to
cost-effectively achieve advanced levels of
The Advanced Energy Design Guide for
K-12 School Buildings-Achieving Zero
Energy, is the first in a series of guides that
is tailored to the design and creation of zero
The guides are developed by ASHRAE,
the American Institute of Architects (AIA),
the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES),
the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC),
and with support and funding from the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE) through the
National Renewable Energy Laboratory
The guides are available as free downloads at www.ashrae.org/freeaedg.
"The guide builds upon the popular
50% advanced energy design guide series
with new and updated recommendations on
energy efficiency. Additionally, it provides
guidance for on-site renewable energy
generation and establishes a set of energy
performance goals for achieving zero energy.
The goals are provided for all ASHRAE climate zones, in both site and source energy,"
said Paul Torcellini, Ph.D., P.Eng., Member
ASHRAE, project committee chair.
Strategies for achieving energy targets
are provided throughout the guide and cover
how to set measurable goals, hire design
teams committed to that goal, use simulation throughout the design and construction
process, and maintain awareness about how
process decisions affect energy usage.
As in previous guides, the how-to tips
provide specific direction broken into specialty areas-building and site planning,
envelope, daylighting, electric lighting,
plug loads, kitchens and food service, water
heating, HVAC and renewable generation.
Each section contains multiple tips that
move the design incrementally toward the
Case studies and technical examples illustrate that the energy goals are achievable
at typical construction budgets, as well as
demonstrate the technologies in real-world
