17 December, Webinar – Ventilative cooling potential and compliance in Energy Performance regulations — Status and perspectives in Belgium, Estonia, Greece

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.
