Research Promotions

What is Research Promotions?

Research Promotions (RP) is a fundraising arm for five ASHRAE funds:  Research, Foundation, Scholarships, Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA), and Learning Institute.   By donating to RP, you are directly funding the principals that go behind the development of all standards, drives the development of new products and new ways of improving the HVAC&R professional community and the world.  Without the generous support of our many donors, publications like the ASHRAE Standards and ASHRAE Handbook series would not be possible.

For the 2013-2014 year, the Idaho Chapter had 39 donors contributed $8,973 for the benefit of ASHRAE Programs.  Currently there are 20 active research projects earmarked for over $2.6 Million within our very own Region IX!  Our Region receives the 2nd most Research funds of all North American regions, receiving over $3 in research money infused back into our region for every $1 raised through our Region IX RP Campaign.                                                           

A big THANK YOU goes out to ALL our Donors for 2013-2014!

Not convinced enough to donate? Look at what ASHRAE 55 would look like without donor support to research!

Thanks for your dedication to our industry.
