for a Seminar on

50% ASHRAE Advanced Energy Design Guide (AEDG) for Large Hospitals

presented by Mr. Mick Schwedler, ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer

This meeting offers 1.5 Hours in PDH credits and has been approved for both AIA and USGBC credit!

Topic Description:
Advanced Energy Design Guides (AEDG) are a series of publications designed to provide recommendations for achieving energy savings over the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1. The Guides have been developed in collaboration with these partnering organizations: The American Institute of Architects (AIA), ASHRAE the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES), the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

This presentation gives a short overview of the guides and provides examples of recommendations, case studies, technologies, systems, and controls to reduce energy use by 50% or more (compared to ASHRAE 90.1-2004). Following this overview, the 50% Large Hospital AEDG is presented in significant detail.

Mick’s degrees include an MSME from the University of Wisconsin Solar Energy Lab and BSME from Northwestern University.

Mick and his wife, Jennifer, have three children (two married) -- that keep them “mighty busy.” Church activities, barbershop quartet singing and an occasional round of golf are enjoyed. Raised 30 miles from Green Bay, WI in the 1960’s, Mick is an avid (or is that rabid?) Packer fan.
