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 in summer or mid-season conditions.
This webinar is part of a broader series focusing on ventilative cooling in energy performance, within the context of compliance with building regulations in several countries.
