The current development in building energy efficiency towards nZEB buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction. One of these major challenges is the increased need for cooling 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. Resilient ventilative cooling can be an energy efficient solution to address this cooling challenge in buildings.
This webinar will present solutions of ventilative cooling in practice in residential and non-residential buildings. Peter Holzer, operating agent of IEA EBC Annex 80 Resilient Cooling of Buildings, will give an overview, and speakers from industry will demonstrate interesting ventilative cooling components.
The recordings and the slides of our recent webinar: “Ventilative Cooling – Design and examples” held on March 26th, 2020 and organised with the support of IEA-EBC annex 62 on ventilative cooling and the venticool platform, and in cooperation with the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre, are now available online.
We are pleased to announce that the proceedings & slides of the 2019 AIVC- TightVent-venticool joint Conference “From energy crisis to sustainable indoor climate – 40 years of AIVC” held on 15-16 October 2019 in Ghent, Belgium are now available to download for FREE on AIVC’s Bibliographic Database, AIRBASE.
