The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites all interested stakeholders to register for an upcoming hybrid workshop on global challenges in energy performance and modeling. The workshop is being held in conjunction with meetings of two International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committees (TCs): ISO/TC 163, Thermal performance and energy use in the built environment, and ISO/TC 205, Building environment design, with their subcommittees and working groups.
“ISO/TC 163 and ISO/TC 205 International Workshop: Responding to Global Challenges” will cover changes needed in efforts surrounding the holistic approach to buildings (EPB), as well as various issues and actions addressing data needed. Attendees will also learn about how other members of the global community are dealing with the challenges they face. ASHRAE is hosting the workshop and the TC plenary meetings.
The workshop will be held on Monday, September 25, 2023, from 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET. Registration is now open. Attendees of the TC 163 and TC 205 plenary meetings can attend the meetings in person in Peachtree Corners, GA, while other participants can attend virtually. Presenters will be both in-person and virtual.
For the past ten years, workshops have been held annually in conjunction with the meetings of TC 163 and TC 205. This workshop will be a slight departure from past years: previously, the focus has been on the development and implementation of EPB through the ISO 52000 series of standards. This year’s workshop agenda reflects the common understanding that there is a need for data and modeling to assure the accuracy of building assessments. In addition, there is a growing recognition that the built-environment industry is undergoing a dramatic shift and that global collaboration is crucial in these efforts. Speakers will explore these topics, with presentations including:
