ASHRAE Research

Since 1960, ASHRAE has sponsored research studies at universities and research firms. The results of these studies have been used to prepare chapters in the ASHRAE Handbook series; as foundational material in special publications; in the formulation of standards; to train university students as they prepare for service in the HVAC&R industry; and to spread the knowledge gained through presentation at Society Conferences and publication in ASHRAE Transactions or conference proceedings.

ASHRAE currently has 59 active research projects.
The total value of these projects is $10.6 million.
Average cost: $159,696
Since 1959, ASHRAE has sponsored 907 projects with a combined value of $76 million.
