Research Promotion

What is Research Promotion


The mission of ASHRAE is to advance the arts and sciences of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigerating (HVAC&R) to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world.

ASHRAE has supported research to improve quality of life. ASHRAE Research impacts the industry by advancing the way HVAC&R systems work and the way in which they are applied, and allowing development of technical information to create standards and guidelines which serve as the basis for testing and design practices around the world. Over US$2 million raised annually to help fund US$10 million in research projects and student grant-in-aids. Contributions come from more than 6,700 members, non-members, and companies. 100% of all funds raised go directly to research projects that support the HVAC&R industry.
