HVAC System Design Using Power Grid Tariffs and Proven Technology - 0.1CPD Points

Wed Mar 3, 17:30 - Wed Mar 3, 18:30


ASHRAE South African Chapter will host a Lecture on HVAC system design this century using power grid tariffs and current proven technology

A basic introduction to electricity tariff structures, exploring the purpose of time of use pricing and demand charges, followed by the application of thermal batteries (thermal storage) and enthalpy wheels to reduce CO2 emissions and energy costs.

These principles are then applied practically in the design of an ocean cruise terminal.
