Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about a rapid and dramatic shift in the number of people working from home. For ASHRAE, the shift to more work from home has an impact on its mission. Most notably, key metrics for performance of the built environment, including occupant health, productivity, energy consumption, and carbon emissions could be impacted with a larger number of people working from home.
