Annex 62 Home

Welcome to IEA EBC Annex 62 – Ventilative Cooling!

The Executive Committee of the IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities programme (IEA EBC) approved the IEA EBC Annex 62 on Ventilative Cooling in November 2013. Annex 62 was running until the end of 2018.

The current development in building energy efficiency towards nearly-zero energy buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction. One of the major new challenges is the increased need for cooling arising in these highly insulated and airtight buildings, which is not only present in the summer period but also in the shoulder seasons and in offices even in midwinter during periods of occupation. In order to address these cooling challenges of buildings, the research focus of the annex will be on development of design methods and compliance tools related to predicting, evaluating and eliminating the cooling need and the risk of overheating in buildings as well as on the development of new attractive energy efficient ventilative cooling solutions.
