On 12-13 April, 2019 the second and final Annex 80 preparation meeting took place at Heriot-Watt University in Dubai. The annex core group came together to work on the final work programme for the upcoming three-year working phase. Each subtask leader briefly presented their suggestions and developments. Especially for the projected collaborative tasks this proofed fruitfull. Wendy Miller (Queensland University of Technology) put forward a new version of the assessment matrix for resilient cooling technologies, which has been discussed in depth by the group. The conducted feedback will inform the final version for the impact assessment which will be carried out during the early working phase of the annex.
This matrix is one of numerous components which form the Annex 80 work programme. The final version will be delivered to the EBC Executive Committee before their next meeting in June, where it will decide upon the initiation of the working phase.
