The conference will be co-hosted by IBPSA Australasia, an affiliate of the International Building Performance Simulation Association, and the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air-conditioning and Heating (AIRAH), Australia's peak body for the HVAC industry. This collaboration will provide a unique forum for exchange of ideas and information between simulation researchers, designers of applications, mechanical designers, and government legislators responsible for designing and enacting building codes which will increasingly include simulations. A strong turnout is expected from the local simulation user community as simulation is a hot topic for building design in Australia.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
