UK chapter

Who we are

The ASHARE UK chapter was formed by combining the ASHRAE UK Midlands and London & South East chapter on 1st of March 2023. Members based in Midlands and London & South East region are automatically enrolled. We welcome all members in the UK to join us.

What we do

At ASHRAE UK Chapter, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Support is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of our members and supporters to continue our important work in advancing the HVAC&R industry through education, research, and networking opportunities. Your donations will help us to offer a wide range of programs and events, from technical workshops and seminars to student scholarships and research projects. By donating to ASHRAE UK, you are investing in the future of our industry and supporting the growth and development of our community. We appreciate your support and thank you for your generosity.

A Message From The Chapter President

"As your incoming President it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ UK Midlands Chapter.
We are living in challenging and exciting times. Net Zero Emissions by 2050 targets are looming, with the UK being one of the first major economies to make it into law. We need to recognize that new and existing buildings account for around 40% of energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It is therefore imperative that we take immediate steps to decarbonize the built environment by reducing emissions associated with building construction components and equipment (the embodied carbon), and emissions that occur from operational energy use (the operational carbon dioxide emissions)...
Hence the UK Midlands strategic theme this year is ‘Decarbonising Our Buildings’. The strategy will be promoted through educational and technical events, and engagement through key stakeholders to share best practice. We need to do this not only within the ASHRAE Midlands circle but also among our wider professional communities in order to increase awareness. The ASHRAE Task Force for Building Decarbonization (TFBD) has been has been providing leadership and technical resources since 2021. Such outreach is vital, as highlighted by the ASHRAE Society’s 2022-23 theme promoted by President Farooq Mehboob – ‘Securing Our Future.’ As Mehboob says, “A meaningful and powerful future will not come to us...we must collectively seek it...create it...and SECURE it”."
