Mick Schwedler – Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings – Achieving Zero Energy
The Wisconsin Chapter of ASHRAE is proud to announce that on November 19th Mick Schwedler will be presenting ” Advanced Energy Design Guide for K-12 School Buildings – Achieving Zero Energy “.
Mick has been active in the development and support of HVAC systems for Trane since 1982. As an applications engineer his areas of expertise include system optimization (in which he holds patents) as well as chilled water and water source heat pump system design.
Mick serves as a Vice President on the ASHRAE Board of Directors and has been nominated for the position of ASHRAE Treasurer (2019-20). He is an ASHRAE Fellow, recipient of ASHRAE’s Exceptional Service, Distinguished Service, and Standards Achievement Awards, and was Chair of SSPC 90.1-2010 (if you have any comments about that!). Mick also served as Chair of the Advanced Energy Design Guide Steering Committee and was on project committees for the 50% Hospital and Office Buildings AEDGs.
Moving beyond energy to an environmental perspective, Mick presently chairs the LEED Technical Committee and serves on the LEED Steering Committee. He is also a past member of several USGBC technical and education groups, authored portions of the original ASHRAE Green Building Guide, and served on technical groups for the New Buildings Institute.
Since 2002, ASHRAE, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), USGBC, and AIA, with support from the Department of Energy, have collaborated on a series of Advanced Energy Design Guides (AEDGs) that result in significant energy savings in the built environment beyond what is expected by using only ASHRAE Standard 90.1. The AEDG series of documents is now one of the most popular publications in ASHRAE’s history with over 600,000 copies in circulation.
This program provides a brief history of the AEDG Series, and then focuses on the newest group in the AEDG series – Achieving Zero Energy. The first volume in this new series is for Zero Energy K-12 School Building Design, and the program will highlight the major steps and integrated, systematic approach for achieving Zero Energy in schools. Recommended audience: School Boards, administrators and Principals, teachers, consulting engineers, contractors, facilities managers, and students.
Registration and itinerary for the October Meeting are below.
Cost: Free to ASHRAE members, $15 for guests
