CO2 Monitoring for Outdoor Airflow and Demand-Controlled Ventilation:
Presented by: Thomas M. Lawrence, Ph.D., P.E., LEED-AP, ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer
A number of programs and standards that exist for buildings today specify the use of outdoor air monitoring. Monitoring is to be done either based on CO2 levels in the occupied space or actual measurement of outdoor airflow, depending on the space design occupancy and ventilation type (mechanical or natural). Current standards or program descriptions do not provide detailed guidance for determining what level of CO2 should be considered the maximum concentration to expect, and those that do provide guidance are generally based on a single value above the ambient concentration. This session describes how to determine a level for CO2 concentrations for an outdoor airflow monitoring program or as part of the upper control limit for a demand-controlled ventilation system.
Dr. Lawrence is the Mechanical Engineering program lead with the University of Georgia, and has 35+ years of professional experience. After spending 18 years in industry he went back for his PhD and has been at UGA since January 2004. He is the past chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee 2.8 and is a member of the committee that wrote and maintains ASHRAE Standard 189.1 for High Performance Green Buildings. As an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, he gives seminars at venues around the world. Dr. Lawrence was named an ASHRAE Fellow in 2016 and was a Director-at-Large for ASHRAE from 2016-2019.
Dr. Lawrence has a B.S. with Highest Distinction in Environmental Science from Purdue University, a M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University and a second M.S. degree in Engineering Management from Washington University. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in the spring of 2004.
