the spread of virus indoors. ASHRAE and the CDC, among other public health
organizations, recommend a combination of air filtration and increased
indoor ventilation for buildings.This IBPSA-USA NYC session will look at a
few technologies and discuss the energy use impact of air filtration /
increased ventilation and ways to account for the impact in energy models.
*Nov. 18: Building Simulation Users Group November Event: High Performance
This session will highlight several case studies of high performance
schools in the Northwest to address daylighting, natural ventilation, and
integration of mechanical systems. Each passive strategy will be addressed
in detail with regional examples and performance research.
