President’s Message,

 The next time you are looking for technical information on a HVAC related topic you may want to consider visiting the ASHRAExCHANGE. The xCHANGE is a new forum on ASHRAE related topics (IAQ, BIM, Government Affairs, etc.).

Also, consider subscribing via RSS to our Central OK Chapter blog. We’ve been updating it almost weekly. 

GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS: Last month Congress gave final approval to, and President Barack Obama signed, the Agricultural Act of 2014, commonly known as the Farm Bill (H.R.2642)
 
The Farm Bill is a sprawling 357 pages, covering a wide range of areas – among them, building energy efficiency. In this area, the bill will require the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to submit a report to Congress that contains:

  • An analysis of energy use by the USDA headquarters and major regional facilities.

  • A list of energy audits that have been conducted at such facilities.

  • A list of energy efficiency projects that have been conducted at such facilities.

  • A list of energy savings projects that could be achieved with enacting a consistent, timely, and proper mechanical insulation maintenance program and upgrading mechanical insulation at such facilities.

 

The ASHRAE Grassroots Government Affairs committee has established a Facebook page if you’re interested in industry-related legislation and regulations coming out of Washington.

 ASHRAE RESEARCH: One of the more important tasks we perform each year is helping collect funds for the ASHRAE Research Promotion fund. If you have donated in the past, Adam Shupe or someone from his committee will be contacting you shortly asking you to renew your investment in ASHRAE research.

At the Winter Meeting in NYC, The University of Oklahoma was awarded $237,346 for perform research on research project 1399-TRP: Survey of Particle Production Rates from Process Activities in Pharmaceutical and Biological Cleanrooms.

There is currently of $750,000 of research being conducted @ OSU & OU that is being funded by ASHRAE.
