April 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This course presents practical guidance contained in two NEW ASHRAE publications: Design Guide for District Cooling, Second Edition and Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling. District cooling systems, when designed and operated properly, can be an energy-efficient alternative to conventional in building chilled water plant adding to an owner’s sustainability portfolio and allowing the building owner to focus on their own business, rather than operating and maintaining a chilled water plant. District cooling systems can provide buildings in a particular area with chilled water for comfort and process cooling with the benefits to the building owner of greatly reduced or eliminated maintenance cost, much lower space requirements, and no concerns as to plant capacity or load growth. This 6-hour course covers what designers and owners need to know about district cooling to enable it to provide energy efficiencies and reliable operation. Topics covered include Planning, Central Plant Design, Distribution Systems, End User Interfaces, Thermal Energy Storage, and Operation and Maintenance from both the designer and owner perspectives. The instructors will take attendees through the guidance provided in these new tools made available from ASHRAE to advance the successful applications and use of district cooling technology.
