Please JOIN WVASHRAE for our
2022 WV High Performance Building Day (HPBD)
Monday, August 22, 2022
8:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
This year the WV High Performance Building Day (HPBD) will be focused on how to comply with the ASHRAE 90.1-2013® Commercial Building Energy Code. This code was adopted by WV Legislators and the Fire Marshall with an effective date of August 1, 2022. This was part of state action to update building codes to newer versions.

ASHRAE Learning Institute Instructor, Mack Wallace, will be teaching the course. As an added bonus, Mr. Wallace will overview the more recent ASHRAE 90.1 codes (2016, 2019 and a preview of the 2022). This course should help you meet the code requirements and advise clients on the impact of selecting one of these codes for a building. Each 90.1 version is more energy efficient than the previous or older versions. Please Note: ASHRAE 90.1 is the only State adopted commercial building energy code enforced in WV.

Our lunch speaker will present “Looking into the Future”. Paula Guffey, CMTA, will give an update on WV Owner Adoption of High Performance Design to include EUI impact, economic/cost impact, when and why do onsite renewables (solar) for zero energy, and the impact of utility rate changes on building operations.
