ASHRAE is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment which has 58 thousand members across 128 countries.
Prof. Dr. Özerdem was recommended for vice presidency in charge of members’ relations at the regional general assembly that took place in 2016 of the Society that focuses on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry. Prof. Dr. Özerdem will be taking office as of July 2017 as the vice president of Region At Large countries including England, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Romania, Hungary, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabian, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, Nigeria, etc. Prof. Dr. Özerdem said, “ASHRAE, founded in 1894, has been contributing to the development of eco-friendly building technologies with its core values based on excellence, commitment, integrity, collaboration, and volunteerism”.
‘Goal: Turkic Countries’
Prof. Dr. Özerdem, who mentioned that the technical standards and design criteria of the society were accepted worldwide, stated the following:
“Building codes and design criteria are being followed closely by the respective professions. Thermal comfort, indoor air quality, energy labeling of buildings, safety classification of refrigerants are among the standards set by the Society. One of the main functions of the Society is its support of R&D activities in air conditioning of buildings, so it can contribute to development of more efficient, environment friendly building technologies. I’ve established the Turkish Chapter of the Society in 2013. Its domain expanded shortly with the support of the industry professionals, academicians, and sectorial formations. My mission will be to establish chapters in countries, especially in Turkic Countries in Middle Asia, where the Society has not established chapters before. Also, I plan to lead the way to establish a student branch in Izmir. The Society already has student branches in Ankara and Istanbul.”
