The U.S. Department of Energy and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have announced an agreement to develop achievable and cost-effective standards, jointly promote educational programs, and support one another's products and services. The memorandum of understanding underscores the commitment between DOE and ASHRAE to improve building energy standards that reduce energy costs and carbon pollution nationwide. These concerted efforts help home and business owners save money on their annual utility bills, enhance our nation's energy security by reducing fossil fuel use, and strengthen America's position as a leader in energy-efficient building construction.
