Energy Code Trends and Decoupled Sensible Cooling Systems

Tags: ASHRAE90.1, Chilled Beams, Displacement, Fan Coils, Stretch Energy Code, Underfloor

We discuss some of the recent energy standard and code trends (ASHRAE 90.1, Stretch Energy Code) and their implication on how we design our HVAC systems. We will also identify and understand the application of decoupled sensible cooling systems in commercial spaces.

Technical Agenda

  • Identify and understand energy code trends
  • Understand how certain jurisdictions are meeting their energy goals
  • Distribution Energy Analysis for the Northeast Region
  • Review applications for decoupling sensible cooling components such as Chilled Beams, Underfloor, Fan Coils/VRF, and Displacement Ventilation.
