While the COVID-19 crisis unfolds, in-person programs at the Building Energy Exchange are postponed.  Please join us for this live online program. Streaming details will be sent via Zoom to registered participants prior to the event.

Join ASHRAE New York and the Building Energy Exchange for a detailed discussion of the role building mechanical systems will play in our reemergence from the COVID-19 crisis.

Buildings will play a central role in our reemergence from shelter in place orders, and as certain sectors of the economy begin activities again.  Our esteemed panel will discuss how heating, cooling and ventilation systems in buildings can support safe and healthful interior environments while improving efficiency and occupant comfort.  The strategies available will depend on the specific uses in each building so we have gathered engineers with deep experience across commercial, residential, cultural, higher education and life sciences building typologies.  Topics will include outdoor air rates, filtration, humidity, and many, many other critical issues facing buildings in the months ahead.  Join us for a singular opportunity to discuss how new imperatives for occupant health can harmonize with efficiency and sustainability goals.
