ASHRAE’s High Performance Buildings Conference will take place April 7-8, 2014, at the Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. Conference topics provide a comprehensive overview of high performance building design with a focus on strategies in several areas: water efficiency, building occupant behavior, new building technologies and indoor environmental quality. In addition, increased emphasis is on lighting/daylighting and the building envelope.

Building upon the 2012 High Performance Buildings Conference and 2009 Net-Zero Energy Conference, the conference seeks to advance the industry’s efforts to accomplish a true high-performance built environment.

“The 2014 HPB Conference provides a unique opportunity for dialog among attendees to facilitate understanding of current indoor environmental quality and energy-saving efforts and to share best practices for achieving high-performance buildings,” said Kent Peterson, conference chair.
