“Energy Efficiency and Indoor Climate in Buildings” has just been released. This monthly online newspaper contains relevant information on the international platform on ventilative cooling (venticool) & IEA EBC annex 62, the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC), the building and ductwork airtightness … Continue reading
This webinar will focus on summer thermal comfort by discussing available national requirements, related assessment methods as well as the results from field studies. Overheating prevention is addressed by EPBD Annex I which states that the energy performance of a … Continue reading
Ventilative cooling—i.e., the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces—can be very effective to reduce the cooling energy demand in buildings, under summer or mid-season conditions. This webinar is part of a broader series focusing on … Continue reading
“Ventilative cooling for buildings may lead to cooling energy savings and improvements in thermal comfort, especially in seasonally temperate and warm climates. But, codes and regulations need to better quantify its benefits”, says professor Per Heiselberg, operating agent of IEA EBC annex 62 in his article “The state-of-the-art for ventilative cooling” included in the latest issue of IEA EBC news.
The November-2016 newsletter also features information on annex 63 “Implementation of energy strategies in communities”, annex 64 “Optimised performance of energy supply systems” , annex 66 “Occupant behaviour modelling tools” and an article on how benchmarking benefits Australia’s buildings.
Please visit the IEA EBC website at http://www.iea-ebc.org/publications/ebc-news/ to download the newsletter and read the full article.
IEA EBC Annex 62 released an Application Database containing buildings which make use of Ventilative Cooling from several countries. Each datasheet holds basic building specifications as well as information about Ventilative Cooling Site Design Elements and Ventilative Cooling Architectural Design … Continue reading
The 6th Annex 62 Expert Meeting will be held from Wednesday, October 12 to Thursday, October 13, 2016 at the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, in Vienna, Austria. The participants will present and discuss the Annex’s deliverables and … Continue reading
ATLANTA – The keynote speakers for the IAQ 2016 Defining Indoor Air Quality: Policy, Standards and Best Practices Conference have been announced. The conference, co-organised by ASHRAE and AIVC, takes place Sept. 12-14, 2016, in Alexandria, Va., at the Crowne … Continue reading
Ventilative cooling can be very effective to reduce the cooling energy demand in buildings in summer or mid-season conditions. Although energy simulation tools can be used to assess ventilative cooling potential, finding the appropriate trade-off between accuracy and simplicity for … Continue reading
