Yes. A ventilative cooling potential tool (VC Tool) was developed within IEA EBC Annex 62 to assess its potential by taking into account climate conditions, building envelope thermal properties, occupancy patterns, internal gains and ventilation needs. This tool calculates the ventilative cooling potential by the number of hours when ventilative cooling is useful and estimates the airflow rates needed to prevent building overheating.
