ASHRAE’s Second Developing Economies Conference takes place November 10 – 11, 2017 in Delhi, India.
In view of the anticipated construction boom in Developing Economies for infrastructure and urbanization, the conference is an ASHRAE initiative to reach out and share its resources.
The conference theme is entitled “Trends, Opportunities and Challenges for the Built Environment in Developing Economies.”
This theme is focused on trends that are affecting the built environment in developing economies and the opportunities and challenges presented by these trends. With the benefit of the learnings from developed countries, Developing Economy Countries are in many ways leapfrogging technologies while at the same time handicapped due to inadequate education and regulations.
- Technologies that can be a game changer in building design.
- Solutions to challenges, such as outdoor and indoor pollution, refrigerant phasedown, lack of trained manpower and expensive technologies.
- Standards, measurement and rating standards being developed and adopted to bring a common language for built environment evaluation, such as bEQ, well standards, local standards, etc.
- The regulatory changes and direction affecting the building industry, such as energy codes.
- The evolving economic models and their impact on building planning and use.
The Conference attempts to bring together experts from all over the world.
