IAPMO Seeks Technical Subcommittee Members for Development of National Standard for District Ambient Temperature Loop Distributed Energy Systems

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials is seeking volunteers, with technical background in plumbing systems and specific knowledge of district ambient temperature loop distributed energy systems and geothermal related low-temperature distribution systems. These systems can be integrated with multiple renewables such as solar thermal and solar photovoltaic. Volunteers representing, but not limited to, jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts, are invited to participate on the IAPMO Z1381 Technical Subcommittee.

An ATL system is a closed-loop piping system with central pumping that includes various heat sources and heat sinks to hold the loop fluid near the long-term average ambient air temperature. The sources/sinks can be passive or active and further can include opportunistic or unique locally available waste or byproduct heat sources. The closed-loop piping system typically controls or engages these sources/sinks to maintain the loop temperature to meet the seasonal requirements, as well as specific building needs.

The Z1381 TSC members will be assisting the Hydronics Standards Committee with the development of a new American National Standard and Canadian National Standard. The committee will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments and operate in accordance with IAPMO’s accredited procedures for standards development: IAPMO PP-1 (Policies and Procedures for Consensus Development of American National Standards) and IAPMO PP-2 (Policies and Procedures for Development of National Standards of Canada).

The deadline to apply is June 29. Applications can be downloaded through the following URL:
