ASHRAE’s 2010-2018 Research Strategic Plan

A new research strategic plan will guide ASHRAE research for the next five years. It centers on sustainability, which is defined as ‘the concept of maximizing the effectiveness of resource use while minimizing the impact of that use on the environment.’ Review the ASHRAE Research Strategic Plan 2010-2018 (PDF).

The 2005-2010 Research Strategic Plan and other background documents that were used to develop the 2010-2018 plan are available below.

Research Promotion Committee (RP) and Campaign

The RP Committee manages and supports both the Society-level fundraising and Chapter-level fundraising of the RP Campaign.  Traditionally supporting just research, the RP Campaign was expanded ten years ago to include support of education and ALI, endowed research through ASHRAE Foundation, young engineers programs, scholarships, and the general/unrestricted fund.  Research, the backbone of ASHRAE, remains the primary fund of the program with over $1.9 million raised for this program annually. If you have questions about a particular fund or the RP Campaign in general, please contact ASHRAE’s RP staff at Headquarters.
