Technical Session Highlights:

The ASHRAE - Shaping the Next

ASHRAE chapters are the backbone of the Society and play a central role in achieving its goals. Through our collective efforts, ASHRAE chapters are a vital, global driver of progress in building science and technology.

The Presidential theme, “Shaping the Next,” focuses on the importance of goals, planning, and commitment to enable us to fulfill our responsibility to our world - making buildings safe, healthy, productive, comfortable environments in harmony with nature - by developing ourselves – the professional community and transforming our work – what we do, how we do it, and who we do it with.

Main Presentation Highlights:

The ASHRAE Building Energy Labeling Program           

Whether voluntary or mandatory, the rating of the energy use and indoor environmental quality of buildings is a growing trend worldwide.  In 2009, ASHRAE introduced its own "Building Energy Quotient" (bEQ) labeling program for new and existing buildings and is now in the process of piloting it in a number of locations around the U.S. It is an ambitious program comprising not only the development of an energy use performance scale, but also tools and procedures for performing ratings and certification of the qualified energy modelers and building assessors needed to implement it. This presentation will provide an overview of the bEQ program, describe its relationship to other building certification programs in the US and elsewhere, identify the potential benefits of certification, and summarize the current state of implementation of the program and plans for the future.


William Bahnfleth is Professor and Director of the Indoor Environment Center in the Department of Architectural Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) in University Park, PA, where he has been employed since 1994. Previously, he was a Senior Consultant for ZBA, Inc. in Cincinnati, OH and a Principal Investigator at the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory in Champaign, IL. He holds BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois, where he also earned an undergraduate degree in music (pipe organ performance), and is a registered professional engineer.

At Penn State, Dr. Bahnfleth teaches undergraduate courses in HVAC fundamentals and controls and graduate courses in chilled water systems, hot water and steam systems, and indoor air quality. His research interests cover a wide variety of indoor environmental control topics, including chilled water pumping systems, stratified thermal energy storage, protection of building occupants from indoor bioaerosol releases, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation systems, and others. He is the author or co-author of more than 100 technical papers and 11 books and book chapters. He consults regularly on the design of chilled water thermal energy storage systems and has been involved in more than 20 projects world-wide.

Dr. Bahnfleth is a fellow of both ASHRAE and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and is also a member of the International Society for Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA), Sigma Xi, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and the Society of Building Science Educators (SBSE). He has served ASHRAE in a variety of capacities, including Student Branch Advisor, Chapter Governor, Technical Committee and Standing Committee Chair, and as Director-at-Large, Vice President, Treasurer, and 2013-14 Society President. He is the recipient of a 1st place ASHRAE Technology Award, Transactions Paper Award, and Distinguished Service and Exceptional Service Awards.
