Tip: The following section can be edited by the webmaster as needed. It does not have to be about Whitepapers. You can edit that to be anything. To add, delete or reposition sections of the accordion, use the concentric arrows button in the editing toolbar at the top. When typing or inserting text into an accordion and there is more than one paragraph, you MUST use "shift + enter" between paragraphs. Be sure that you do not accidentally just use the "enter" key to separate the paragraphs. It will look OK but after you publish the page, the text after the 'enter' may no longer be editable.


Other Publications

Additional documents produced by the TC may be available for direct download or for purchase through the ASHRAE Bookstore, as noted below.

Special Publications


Green Guide 5th Edition is now available at the ASHRAE Bookstore!

TC 2.8 has developed the ASHRAE GreenGuide, a publication which provides design engineers with information on green or sustainable building design.  The ASHRAE GreenGuide provides guidance to designers of HVAC&R systems in how to participate effectively on design teams charged with producing green buildings. It also covers green design techniques applicable to related technical disciplines, such as plumbing and lighting, and it addresses how mechanical and electrical systems may interact with and be influenced by architectural design. 

The ASHRAE Green Guide, 5th Edition can be purchased as a hardcopy or PDF download.


ASHRAE members have free access to research project final reports. Non-ASHRAE members can purchase research reports for $30 per article from the ASHRAE Bookstore.

Our current completed research project was 1627-RP: An Evaluation of the Actual Energy Performance of Small Office and K-12 School Buildings Designed in Accordance with the 30% ASHRAE Advanced Energy Design Guides. A presentation on the results was given at Long Beach (abstract here). WS-1814 Actual Energy Performance of Secondary Schools and Medium Offices Designed to Comply with ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 is underway.
