The Building EQ pages on the ASHRAE website have many resources available including several 10 to 15 minute podcasts that introduce both the In Operation and As Designed assessments. There is also a 30 minute training video on how to use the Building EQ Portal. Two Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) documents provide guidance to assist your chapter’s outreach efforts in supporting university-based and grassroots-driven building energy assessments. These resources provide you with opportunities to comply with PAOE Presidential Initiatives such as building operations, energy efficiency, and sustainability.
The most recent Tech Hour featuring ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer Doug Cochrane is focused on Building EQ and is now available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKE6EX7tDx4. This Tech Hour provides a basic understanding of Building EQ and would be a helpful resource for building owners who want to understand how their buildings contribute to their energy resilience and independence plan.
The January issue of the ASHRAE Journal includes a case study article, Building EQ Empowers Schools, Teaches Students, on the use of the Portal in universities and public schools. A short two-page summary of this case study is also being added to the Building EQ page.
