International Societies form Indoor Environmental Quality – Global Alliance (IEQ-GA)

ATLANTA – A newly formed alliance seeks to serve as a global source for information, guidance and knowledge on indoor environmental quality.

A memorandum of understanding creating the Indoor Environment Quality Global Alliance was signed Sunday, June 29, at ASHRAE’s 2014 Annual Conference in Seattle, Washington.  The founding members of the alliance are:


Can Ventilation Energy Loss Be Avoided or Recovered?

Ventilation energy demand can be reduced considerably by adopting a variety of energy efficient ventilation techniques. These include:


Minimising the need for ventilation: Energy demand may be curtailed by ensuring that the need for ventilation is reduced. This means minimising emissions from avoidable pollutant sources. Any extra ventilation needed to dilute and remove avoidable pollutants can be equated directly against conditioning load.
