April is here, and that means it's time for our Biennial Product Show. Jeff Schultz has done an excellent job in putting together our
biggest show yet and we're all excited to bring this event to the members! There are still a couple of booths left and there are still
trailer spots available too, so if you're interested in grabbing one of these, please get in touch with Jeff.

In addition to the show itself, we are proud to present eight (8) educational seminars that the Chapter will pursue for PDH credit. We
have some great topics and excellent speakers looking forward to sharing their information with you. Please refer to our website - - for seminar information and sign up soon!

The Cheryl Rossini Future Engineers Scholarship Fund will be advertised on the website, via postcard, and via email. So be on the
lookout for the info and pass it along to students looking to pursue an education in Engineering. The deadline for the application is
April 30th, 2010! Please spread the word.

Our March 9th meeting had Daniel Nall from WSP Flack + Kurtz in NYC give his presentation on "CFD Analysis for Building
Comfort Systems Design". The 71 attendees, all were looking forward to hearing what the Director of Sustainability for WSP Flack
+ Kurtz had to say. One of the items Daniel pointed out with how the use of CFD analysis can assist in maximizing the design of the
air distribution for many spaces, whether it is within an under-floor air system for an office or a large sports arena trying to keep the
ice cold during hockey games. The meeting went over very well!

Thank you to all of the applicants for The Boston Chapter Hall of Fame. We will announce the winners of the award at our May
Installation of Officers, and in a change of plan, we will present the winners with their plaques at our October 2010 meeting, giving
the recipients their proper due.

See you at the Product Show!

A Miles-Per-Gallon Rating for Your Home? Get Ready!
The Energy Performance Score Lets Home Buyers Compare Home
                    Energy Consumption
PORTLAND, OR, March 5, 2010 --/WORLD-WIRE/-- The last time you bought a car, especially in the current economy, you
probably paid close attention to the fuel efficiency by looking at the mile-per-gallon ratings and comparing similar vehicles. Now
home buyers in certain states may soon be able to do the same with homes, and it looks like the trend will go national.

Earth Advantage Institute, a leading nonprofit green building resource that has certified more than 11,000 homes, has played a key
role in the conceptualization, promotion, and adoption of the Energy Performance Score (EPS), currently the only residential energy
labeling system that enables buyers to directly compare home energy consumption. The tool provides homeowners with both an en-
ergy consumption score and an associated carbon emission score. The number is based on in-home measurements and diagnostics
data, as well as your utility’s energy source, which are entered into online software for calculation.
The EPS has proven popular enough in the Northwest that it has been rolled out on a voluntary basis for new homes in Oregon and in
a large 5,000-home pilot for existing residences in Seattle. Both Oregon and Washington state legislatures have created task forces to
explore the potential of mandatory energy labeling at time of listing. Lawmakers see energy labeling as a key tool in motivating
homeowners to make energy efficiency improvements. Homeowner surveys indicate the public is heavily in favor of having a rating
system that can help them obtain information on energy performance, where to make improvements, and how to add to the value of
their home.

“We use EPS information as a marketing tool to help sell our homes,” said Aaron Fairchild, president of G2B Ventures, a Seattle-
based real estate investment firm. “The EPS is an amazingly innovative tool that will help us transform the Seattle real estate mar-

Now the federal government has turned its eyes toward energy labeling. The Department of Energy has targeted the month of Octo-
ber as the deadline for developing a voluntary national rating standard that may serve as a tool for banks and other institutions to
provide preferred finance products for energy efficient, healthy homes.

“We pointed to energy labeling as one of the top 10 green building trends for 2010,” said Sean Penrith, executive director, Earth Ad-
vantage Institute. “The federal government has taken up the flag, and has asked for additional data on the EPS program to inform its
efforts in creating a voluntary standard this year.”

Last month the Energy Performance Score won first place in the energy category at’s “Ideas for Change in America” and
has now moved on to the final round of internet voting. If the idea is voted into the top ten, the Oregon-conceived EPS will be pre-
sented to key White House administration officials. You can vote for the EPS at by scrolling down to the
energy category and clicking on “A Miles-Per-Gallon Rating for Your Home.”

                   ASHRAE Webcast - "Right from the Start -
                  Commissioning for High Performing Buildings"

                                              Submitted by Paul Hanbury

                                               April 21, 2010
                                           1:00 – 4:00 P.M. EDT
This webcast will provide tools to help you overcome the hurdles of Commissioning, learn the “What, Why, When and
Who” of the process, and how you can make it “business as usual.” The panel of experts will outline how Commission-
ing supports a smoother construction process, maximizes the quality and persistence of energy and cost reductions, and
provides a facility that operates as it was intended.
This free webcast is sponsored by the ASHRAE Chapter Technology Transfer Committee with support from ASHRAE’s
High Performing Buildings Magazine. For complete details, visit our website at

Below, please find a list of currently active or recently completed research projects and grants. The list was
taken from These projects and grants were awarded within Region 1 during the summer of
2009. The Boston chapter is a member chapter of Region 1. Last year, we as an individual members, non-
members and companies contributed $15,793.00. This amount represents a shortage of our goal which was
$19,280.00 which had been assigned to the Boston chapter by Region 1. The grand total of Boston along with
the other fourteen chapters in our region was $143,489.00. If you look at the $696,873.00 given to researchers
and students in Region 1 alone, it is a no brainer that New England gets back almost five times the money it
contributes. Over $200,000.00 comes back to the Boston area alone. Let's continue to stimulate research!

members wonder what’s new, what’s being discussed, and what’s being done to make our chapter better.
Below is a quick summary of what was discussed:

Date:            MONDAY, June 7, 2010

Place:           COUNTRY CLUB OF HALIFAX, Halifax, Massachusetts
                 POQUOY BROOK GOLF COURSE, Lakeville, Massachusetts

Who:             ASHRAE members and guests, by reservation only. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, and all
                 reservations MUST BE MADE BY MAY 21, 2010.

Price:           $150.00—NO TICKET SALES AT THE DOOR
                 This includes greens fees, electric carts, cheese table for cocktail hour, and five course dinner. Prizes for everyone
                 plus golf prizes.

Halifax          We will have a shot gun start. Two foursomes (total of 8) will drive their carts out to their pre-assigned tee (on
Tee Time:        Par 3 tees, only one foursome will tee off). Eighteen foursomes will tee off at the same time, 1:00 PM sharp. It is
1:00 PM          important that you be there ahead of time. The format this year has been changed to a Bramble Format. A
                 Bramble starts off like a Scramble where each team member tees off and the best drive is selected. How
                 ever, in a Bramble, after the best drive is selected, all team members from that point on will play their own
                 ball, stroke-play style, until each team member has holed out. Each team member must use (2) of the drives
                 during course play.

Poquoy Brook:    Because we sell out every year, any overflow will play at Poquoy Brook in Lakeville. This will be either shot gun
                 or tee times, depending on how many foursomes are registered by May 6th. If tee times, they would be 9:30 AM
                 to 12:45 PM.

                 We need to know the foursomes as soon as possible and recommend that you call immediately for reservations,
                 even if you do not have all the names of those in your group. Contact Bill Garvey (Phone: 617-210-1711 or
                 Fax: 617-210-1800). IMPORTANT: Need the sizes of those in your foursome.

Dinner Only:     A separate meal ticket may be purchased for those who do not play golf. Cost is $35.00.

Note:            All courses require that we follow course rules: Proper dress code—No jeans, tank tops, bathing suits. No metal
                 spikes. You are responsible for the golf carts you drive.

                   First Changes Proposed to New Green Standard:
                               Daylighting Addressed
                                            Members Sought for Committee
 ATLANTA—Members are being sought and changes proposed for the new standard for the design of high-performance green
buildings published in January.
ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise
Residential Buildings, is the first code-intended commercial green building standard in the United States. The standard provides a
long-needed green building foundation for those who strive to design, build and operate green buildings. It covers key topic areas of
site sustainability, water use efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and the building’s impact on the atmos-
phere, materials and resources.
Under ASHRAE’s continuous maintenance procedure, which allows requests for change to any part of the standard to be made at
any time, changes have already been proposed.
“Given the high amount of interest in this standard, using continuous maintenance allows us to incorporate current technical infor-
mation on a timely basis,” Kent Peterson, chair of the committee said. “These changes are then put out for public review and com-
ment, which results in an industry consensus standard.”
Open for public comment are addenda a and b. Addendum a makes the daylighting definitions and criteria consistent with changes
recently proposed to Standard 90.1, which sets requirements for energy efficient buildings. Addendum b reduces the space limitation
for daylighting requirements. Rather than requiring daylighting in space larger than 1,000 square feet, the proposal would require it
in spaces larger than 250 square feet.
Members also are being sought for the committee developing the standard with slots opening July 1. The deadline to apply is March
31. For more information on membership, contact

     ICC, ASHRAE, USGBC and IES Announce Nation’s First Set of
       Model Codes and Standards for Green Building in the U.S.
ATLANTA – What do organizations representing building safety professionals, energy and lighting engineers, green building practitioners,
architects and technical standards developers have in common? They have all come together to green the nation’s built environment by es-
tablishing a comprehensive model green building code designed to rapidly advance green building practice across the U.S.
The International Code Council (ICC), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the
U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) today announce the launch of the
International Green Construction Code (IGCC), representing the merger of two national efforts to develop adoptable and enforceable green
building codes. The IGCC provides the building industry with language that both broadens and strengthens building codes in a way that will
accelerate the construction of high performance green buildings across the U.S.
For decades, ICC and ASHRAE have worked to develop codes and standards that become the industry standard of care for the design, con-
struction, operations and maintenance of residential and commercial buildings in the U.S. and internationally. In coordination with the ef-
forts of ICC and ASHRAE, USGBC has been leading a nationwide green building movement centered on the LEED Green Building Rating
System since LEED was launched in 2000. The convergence of these efforts in the IGCC is perhaps the most significant development in the
buildings industry in the past 10 years.
Leveraging ICC’s unrivaled delivery infrastructure to reach all 50 states and more than 22,000 local jurisdictions and ASHRAE, USGBC
and IES’s technical strengths, this partnership will accelerate the proliferation of green building codes and standards developed jointly by
ICC, ASHRAE and USGBC and IES, across the country and around the globe. The newly launched International Green Construction Code
(IGCC) establishes a previously unimaginable regulatory framework for the construction of high performance commercial buildings that are
safe, sustainable and by the book.
A landmark addition to the technical content of the IGCC is the inclusion of ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the
Design of High Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, as an alternate path of compliance. Standard 189.1 is
a set of technically rigorous requirements, which like the IGCC, covers criteria including water use efficiency, indoor environmental qual-
ity, energy efficiency, materials and resource use, and the building’s impact on its site and its community. Standard 189.1 was written by
experts representing all areas of the building industry, who contributed tens of thousands of man hours. Developed in a little over three
years, the standard underwent four public reviews in which some 2,500 comments were received.
“The emergence of green building codes and standards is an important next step for the green building movement, establishing a much-
needed set of baseline regulations for green buildings that is adoptable, usable and enforceable by jurisdictions,” said ICC Chief Executive
Officer Richard P. Weiland. “The IGCC provides a vehicle for jurisdictions to regulate green for the design and performance of new and
renovated buildings in a manner that is integrated with existing codes as an overlay, allowing all new buildings to reap the rewards of im-
proved design and construction practices.”
“Bringing together the code expertise of ICC with technical expertise of ASHRAE to create a comprehensive green building code will ac-
celerate our transformation to more sustainable building practices,” Gordon Holness, ASHRAE president, said. “ASHRAE is committed to
providing the design guidance building designers and engineers need to reduce the energy consumption of buildings.”
“The U.S. Green Building Council’s mission is market transformation and we’ve long recognized the need to reach beyond the market lead-
ers served by LEED to accomplish this goal,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and Founding Chairman of the U.S. Green Building
Council. “Broadening the scope of the codes and establishing a higher floor allows us to continue to raise the ceiling, a critical factor in
how the building industry is working to mitigate climate change. We are thrilled to see this set of complementary green building codes and
standards; our organizations working collaboratively will advance green building nationwide in a way that was never before possible. ”
"IES is pleased to support the collaborative efforts of the organizations which demonstrate expertise in code and technical standards devel-
opment in this comprehensive green building code,” said Rita Harrold, IES Director of Technology. “IES looks forward to ongoing guid-
ance for sustainable building practices."

On Monday, March 15, ASHRAE, IES and USGBC will join ICC at its Washington, DC headquarters as they and their co-authors (the
American Institute of Architects and the American Society for Testing Materials) launch the IGCC. On Monday, Standard 189 .1 and the
IGCC will be available for wide distribution, providing much-needed content, code language, and vision for more safe and sustainable fu-
ture. The organizations are also working together to advance related education and advocacy efforts to promote adoption, enforcement and
compliance with the IGCC codes that will pave the way for green buildings and neighborhoods, while creating jobs and strengthening the
economy. For more information on IGCC: and on Standard 189.1:
