Conference to focus on IAQ in high ambients
Papers are being sought for a conference focused on energy and indoor air quality in humid and arid hot climates.
Organised by ASHRAE, the ASHRAE Qatar Oryx Chapter and Qatar University, the Second International Conference on Energy and Indoor Environment for Hot Climates takes place February 26-27, 2017, in Doha, Qatar.
The Gulf region in general and Qatar in particular is experiencing an escalation in high energy demands primarily because of mega-construction projects. This demand can be lessened by energy-efficient HVAC&R system designs presented at this Conference, according to Walid Chakroun, conference chair.
“The region faces the challenge to produce high-efficiency system designs with sustainable alternatives to R22 technologies,” Chakroun said. “This Conference addresses that challenge and sets the path for a better understanding the integration of energy efficiency and indoor air quality in high ambient temperature regions. The Conference has the objectives to lower energy use and to address the impact of low-energy design on occupant health in different building sectors, for both developed and developing economies.”
