Bio:

Mr. Gordon P. Sharp is the chairman of Aircuity, Inc. and has over 25 years of wide-ranging entrepreneurial experience and more than 25 U.S. patents in the fields of energy efficiency and laboratory controls. As founder, former president and CEO of Phoenix Controls, he led the development of this world leader in laboratory airflow controls that was acquired by Honeywell in 1998.  The technologies invented by Mr. Sharp at Phoenix Controls are today saving over $1.5 billion annually in energy use. In 2000, Mr. Sharp founded Aircuity, which was spun out of Honeywell and is a smart airside energy efficiency company.

Mr. Sharp is a graduate of MIT with bachelors and masters degrees in electrical engineering.  He is Executive Vice President and a member of the board of directors of I2SL (International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories), the nonprofit foundation that operates the Labs21 conference. He is also a member of two important standards on ventilation: the ANSI/AIHA Standard Z9.5 Committee on Laboratory Ventilation and the ASHRAE SSPC 170 Committee on Ventilation of Health Care Facilities. He is also a voting member of ASHRAE technical committee TC9.10: Laboratory Systems and TC9.11: Clean Spaces/Cleanrooms.

Mr. Sharp is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences on the topics of energy efficiency in buildings and indoor environmental quality and has testified before the US Congress on the topics of climate change and energy efficiency.

 

Presentation:

A Holistic Overview of Technologies and Strategies to Achieve Deep Energy Reductions in Laboratories

As we strive to build more energy efficient laboratories and vivariums, the most impactful approach is often to reduce the outside airflow.  In the last few years new design approaches such as demand based control of lab air change rates, chilled beams (hydronic cooling), and VAV exhaust fan control have been successfully employed to safely reduce these lab airflows to as low as 2 ACH to cut energy consumption significantly. Although these concepts may have been discussed individually in the past, this talk provides a holistic discussion of how these and other energy saving technologies such as heat recovery can be combined to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts.  Several case studies will be provided as well as the results of a sophisticated lab energy analysis tool to determine potential energy and capital cost savings for a typical lab building.
