Special Publications

ASHRAE GREENGUIDE: DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, AND OPERATION OF SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS

Green Guide 5th Edition is now available at the ASHRAE Bookstore!

TC 2.8 has developed the ASHRAE GreenGuide, a publication which provides design engineers with information on green or sustainable building design.  The ASHRAE GreenGuide provides guidance to designers of HVAC&R systems in how to participate effectively on design teams charged with producing green buildings. It also covers green design techniques applicable to related technical disciplines, such as plumbing and lighting, and it addresses how mechanical and electrical systems may interact with and be influenced by architectural design. 

The ASHRAE Green Guide, 5th Edition can be purchased as a hardcopy or PDF download.

Research

ASHRAE members have free access to research project final reports. Non-ASHRAE members can purchase research reports for $30 per article from the ASHRAE Bookstore.

Our current completed research project was 1627-RP: An Evaluation of the Actual Energy Performance of Small Office and K-12 School Buildings Designed in Accordance with the 30% ASHRAE Advanced Energy Design Guides. A presentation on the results was given at Long Beach (abstract here). WS-1814 Actual Energy Performance of Secondary Schools and Medium Offices Designed to Comply with ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 is underway.
