technology or the development of ASHRAE as a society.









The Award of Engineering Excellence was created in 1989 to recognize a first place winner of the
Technology Award competition for an outstanding
application of innovative design and effective energy
utilization. The recipient of the Award of Engineering









Excellence has demonstrated the best overall compliance with the judging criteria. The award was last
presented in 2014. This year's recipients are Jonathan

The ASHRAE Pioneers
of Industry Award recognizes deceased individuals
who have made milestone
contributions to the growth of
HVAC&R. The recipient, Sadi
Carnot (1796 - 1832), was
a French military engineer and physicist,
often described as the "father of thermodynamics." Carnot's work attracted little
attention during his lifetime, but it was later
used by Rudolf Clausius and Lord Kelvin
to formalize the second law of thermodynamics and define the concept of entropy.

A new online portal makes it easier for
building professionals to access the suite
of resources related to ASHRAE Standard
90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except
Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
"ASHRAE Standard 90.1 is used globally as an industry benchmark for setting
minimum energy performance standards
and energy codes," said Drake Erbe, Member ASHRAE, chair of ASHRAE's Standard
90.1 committee. "Bringing all 90.1-related
resources together in one location will
empower building professionals to focus
more on delivering energy efficiency requirements, knowing they have access to the
most current Standard 90.1 information."
Users visit to
set up login credentials and access the portal. Once inside, users can personalize their
experience to access up-to-date Standard
90.1 resources in one consolidated location.
Features of the portal include:
* A multi-publication online tool that
enables users to view each publication side
by side or separately, as well as copy, paste,
print or annotate content as needed;
* The ability to view official ASHRAE
Interpretations in the context where they
* Access to the Standard 90.1 User's
Manual, which provides detailed instruction for design of commercial and high-rise
residential buildings to ensure standard
compliance. The user's manual also includes measurements and calculations in
both I-P and SI units, sample calculations,
application examples, forms to demonstrate
compliance, and references to related resources and websites; and
* A redlined version of Standard 90.1
showing what changes were made from the
previous edition.
"Standard 90.1 has proven to be an
indispensable reference for engineers and
other professionals involved in the design
of buildings and building systems. The 90.1
Portal will be a helpful companion resource
for users," said Erbe.
