IGSHPA Certified GeoExchange Designer Workshop
Jun 5 – Jun 7 all-day

Certified GeoExchange Designer Workshop

Designing GSHP systems will keep you competitive in a market forced to deal with rising energy costs and resource depletion by offering customers a low-maintenance, economical and green alternative for their space conditioning needs.  Federal and state tax incentives for GSHPs are providing additional demand and popularity for the systems, creating even more opportunities for home owners and commercial buildings.

As an engineer or architectural designer, you have specific questions about GSHP systems that you want answered. IGSHPA has designed a program to offer advanced training towards certification as a Certified GeoExchange Designer (CGD). From an introduction to the technology to a complete review of the design process, participants learn the specific information they need to know.

ASHRAE Annual Conference @ Hilton America's Hotel
Jun 23 – Jun 27 all-day

The 2018 ASHRAE Annual Conference will be held in Houston, June 23–27, 2018. The Technical Program along with Committee meetings, Registration, Bookstore, and Speakers Lounge will be held at the Hilton Americas hotel and the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Technical Program

The Annual Conference Program is comprised of eight tracks, and one mini-track selected to represent areas of focus common among ASHRAE membership. These focus areas include professional development, research, fundamentals and applications, systems and equipment, system management (controls) and some more specific design arenas (such as residential buildings and Cogeneration plants).

“The dynamic and innovative industry of HVAC&R is a reflection of our ever-changing individual, societal, and global constructs and demands.” Cindy Moreno, chair of the 2018 ASHRAE Annual Conference, said. “Whether we are facing the thermal comfort needs of a building occupant, the critical environment needs of our expanding medical and technical fields, the food transportation needs of our global community, or the limited resources of our natural environment, as professional designers and installers we are required to evolve with our industry. Even-more-so, ASHRAE members are challenged to drive the innovation, and create HVAC&R solutions that will not only sustain our environment but, in many ways, also repair the human impact our growing demands have had on our natural resources. The 2018 Annual ASHRAE Conference aims to provide the setting for a meaningful exchange of knowledge and experience, and the technical program looks to enrich that exchange with a broad spectrum of topics and discussion. We welcome you to join us as we share ideas ranging from basic design fundamentals to specific applications and technologies.”

Conference Tracks include:

  • HVAC&R Systems and Equipment
  • Fundamentals and Applications
  • District Energy and Cogeneration Plants
  • HVAC & Resiliency: Safeguarding our World
  • Residential – Modern Building in Hot and Humid Climates
  • Professional Skills
  • Research Summit
  • HVAC&R Control Freaks
  • HVAC&R Analytics
