Dr William Bahnfleth, president of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will present a seminar at ARBS 2014 in Melbourne this month.

Dr Bahnfleth, an indoor air quality expert, says that buildings are one of the largest energy end use sectors worldwide.

Concerns for the availability of energy supplies and the impact of energy use on the environment are driving a worldwide focus on energy end use reduction.

In this push for dramatic changes in the energy use intensity of the building sector, it is essential that the fundamental importance of indoor environmental quality, particularly indoor air quality, not be lost, Dr Bahnfleth says.

His presentation addresses:
• The significance of indoor air quality in terms of its impact on health and productivity and associated costs

• The link between indoor air quality and building energy demands, including examples of efficient technologies for maintaining good indoor air quality

• The need for an approach to building research, design, and operation that recognizes this connection.

The ARBS seminar will be held in conjunction with ARBS 2014 exhibition at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 20-22.

The exhibition is Australia’s largest air-conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition.

Dr Bahfleth’s presentation, Integrating Indoor Air Quality and Energy Efficiency in Buildings, will be held on Thursday, May 22 at 1pm.
