Congratulations to P2S founder Kent Peterson, who received the John F. James International Award from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) on January 24, 2015. Kent was honored at the annual ASHRAE conference in Chicago. The Society recognized 66 distinguished members for their involvement and positive contributions to the organization and industry at this year’s event.
Originally named the International Activities Awards, the John F. James International Award was established in 1983 to honor members who have done the most to enhance the Society’s international presence. Kent is past president of the Society and is currently on the board of the ASHRAE Associate Society Alliance, which works with 51 professional societies around the world. Kent is a prominent lecturer of ASHRAE and served as the Standard 189.1 chair—an ANSI standard addressing a building’s energy efficiency and its impact on the atmosphere, among other high-performance green standards.
