WILLIAM P. BAHNFLETH, PH.D., P.E.

ASHRAE PRESIDENT, 2013 –14

PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS

 

Shaping the Next

Our goals should address, first of all, our world—using our talents and resources for the benefit of the general public, as our governing documents charge us with doing. This is primary. In order to achieve these goals, we must also set goals for ourselves—developing a workforce that is capable of meeting the challenges of the future, and for our work—what we do, how we do it, and with whom.

 

How can we reach the future we desire for ASHRAE, for our industry, and for our world?

The future begins with vision – an understanding of what we want to become or accomplish. Since its inception, ASHRAE’s vision has been the right one and, over many decades, has needed little modification.

 

Progress should mean that we are always changing the world to suit the vision. ~G.K. Chesterton

The certificate of consolidation, the document that created ASHRAE from its predecessor organizations in 1959, states that the purpose of this organization is to advance the arts and sciences of heating, refrigerating, air conditioning and ventilation, and the allied arts and sciences for the benefit of the general public.

Over the years, we have embellished that statement of purpose by adding “related human factors” to our scope and “to promote a sustainable world” to our objectives, but our fundamental reason for existing has not changed. We need to focus not on a new vision, but on fully realizing the one we have.

 

The future is a convenient place for dreams. ~Anatole France

Visions of the future too often remain dreams that never materialize. Is this the result of aiming too high, or is there some other reason? I believe that we can have bold vision and make it real if we understand what is required.

 

The future is always beginning now. ~Mark Strand

There’s no place where we can act, except in the present. Everything we do, every next action, is either taking us toward our vision or it’s taking us somewhere else. We can’t actually dictate the future, but we can shape it. That is the challenge of my theme Shaping the Next—to connect our aspirations for the future with the present so we are always moving intentionally toward making them real.

Dr. Flourentzos FLOURENTZOU, (CH/CY) - Topic: European Mythology & Hellenic Reality for Near Zero Energy Buildings | Energy in Buildings 2013 | Scoop.it

Flourentzos Flourentzou, born in Cyprus, is co-creator and director of Estia SA, a leading Swiss company in research and consulting for sustainable build environment: bioclimatic architecture, low energy buildings, refurbishment diagnosis and investment strategies.

 

He did his first steps as a researcher in bioclimatic architecture in the Solar Energy and Building Physics Laboratory (LESO - EPFL– Lausanne). In the framework of European research projects, he studied natural ventilation and dynamic thermal behaviour of passively cooled buildings. In a recent research project, he directed the development of the new software “DIAL+ Cooling”, simulating passively heated, cooled and ventilated buildings, with the ambitious objective to make dynamic simulation a professional tool for non-building-physics specialists.

 

In parallel with his activity in biocimatics, he oriented his works to multicriteria decision aid theory. His theoretical results are on the origin of European methods EPIQR and INVESTIMMO (diagnosis and sustainable investment management in building refurbishment, methods widely applied in Switzerland and Germany).

 

Since 15 years, he accompanied the optimisation of thermal behaviour and energy performance of major architectural projects. Pioneer large-scale passive and low energy buildings like Ecole International de Geneve, WTO headquarters in Geneva, or Fontenette 300 passive HLM dwellings are few of the numerous projects in which he participated. Recently he applied the passive technics in the Mediterranean climate with the emblematic new passive and bioclimatic town hall of Nicosia.
