Healthy Airside Solutions to Significantly Reduce

Your Building’s Carbon Footprint

Presented by ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, Gordon Sharp


Presentation: In the face of significant energy costs and concerns over global warming, buildings are receiving increasing scrutiny to reduce their carbon footprint and cut their energy expenses while still being sustainable and providing a healthy indoor environment.  For many buildings, outside air is the largest single driver of both a building’s energy efficiency and its indoor environmental quality. However the results of using such approaches as demand control ventilation to optimize outside air has been mixed at best.  This talk discusses and presents case studies on a new, more reliable, and healthier approach to demand control ventilation as well as describes how this approach can provide greater energy efficiency for educational, commercial, healthcare and even laboratory facilities.


Speaker:         Gordon Sharp, an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, is the chairman and founder of Aircuity, Inc. and has over 25 years of wide-ranging entrepreneurial experience and more than 25 U.S. patents in the fields of energy efficiency and laboratory controls. As founder, former president and CEO of Phoenix Controls, he led the development of this world leader in laboratory airflow controls that was acquired by Honeywell in 1998.  The technologies invented by Mr. Sharp at Phoenix Controls are today saving over $1.5 billion annually in energy use. In 2000, Mr. Sharp founded Aircuity, which was spun out of Honeywell and is a smart airside energy efficiency company.

Mr. Sharp is a graduate of MIT with bachelors and masters degrees in electrical engineering.  He is Executive Vice President and a member of the board of directors of I2SL (International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories), the nonprofit foundation that operates the Labs21 conference. He is also a member of two important standards on ventilation: the ANSI/AIHA Standard Z9.5 Committee on Laboratory Ventilation and the ASHRAE SSPC 170 Committee on Ventilation of Health Care Facilities. He is also a voting member of ASHRAE technical committee TC9.10: Laboratory Systems and TC9.11: Clean Spaces/Cleanrooms.

Mr. Sharp is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences on the topics of energy efficiency in buildings and indoor environmental quality and has testified before the US Congress on the topics of climate change and energy efficiency.


Tech Session:           We will have a “Back to Basics” tech session on Pumping Basics presented by Mark Dee of Webb Pump during the social hour.
