UK Midlands was the first ASHRAE group formed in the UK. In 2017 we were inaugurated as a Chapter. Members based in midlands region are automatically enrolled. We welcome all members in the UK to join us.
At ASHRAE UK Midlands Chapter, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Support is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
There are many ways to get involved! You can join in the conversation by connecting with us on social media, meet your fellow member at the events, share your expertise by giving talks and technical tours, and contribute your time and skill by becoming a board member.
To serve humanity by advancing the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and their allied fields.
All our works and activities are carried out by volunteers. In order to extend the impact and reach more people of this industry, we need all the support you can provide. Financial sponsorship for general activities of the Chapter or single events are much welcome.
A healthy and sustainable built environment for all.
We are living in challenging times and facing global crisis. The global pandemic and the climate change have shown the importance our profession and our great contribution to the society. HVAC, air quality, energy are all now frequently discussed in the news for controlling crisis and the public are more aware of the importance of our job. We are no longer unsung heroes. We can contribute to our community and find solutions, if we work together. UK ASHRAE Midlands chapter is one of the most effective platform that can provide a creative environment for new ideas and collaboration. ASHRAE is committed to providing a welcoming environment. Our culture is one of inclusiveness, acknowledging the inherent value and dignity of each individual. As a new chapter we are looking for members to get involved and join our Board of Governors (BOG). Ideally we would like everyone to get involved and contribute formally/informally in anyway they can. We can only tackle these global challenges effectively if we work together and motivate the future generations of building services engineers.
Webinar - Net Zero Energy Buildings
ASHRAE DL Program
Date: Wednesday 14th October 2020
Time: 6.00 pm till 7.00 pm
Location: On line webinar - Register for details
As building regulations around the world continue to impose energy targets in order to reduce carbon emissions and to conserve fossil fuels, designers and contractors must provide buildings which can perform successfully with less energy aiming for Net Zero. The EU requires all buildings to be Net Zero by 2019, excluding plug and process loads, whilst the ASHRAE Board have proposed Net Zero including plug and process loads by 2030. This presentation will provide attendees with an overview of the issues involved and the potential design solutions to achieve Net Zero in a cost effective, practical manner using feedback from exemplar solutions.
New Zero strategies are proposed along with design tools, practical tips, and advice on suitable support information and case study examples.
