venticool becomes the international platform on ventilative cooling!

The platform was initially launched with a specific focus on the European context. Since its’ inauguration, several non-European countries have shown interest in this initiative and the approval of the IEA EBC Annex 62 triggered the broadening of the platforms scope. To better reflect this broader geographic coverage, venticool is now ‘the international platform for ventilative cooling’.

33rd AIVC – 2nd TightVent Conference Round Table Discussion: The balance between energy conservation, indoor air quality and comfort in future energy efficient buildings

The round table participants were industry representatives with a clear mid- and long-term vision on research priorities, opportunities and bottlenecks for industry. They have shared their views on challenges in the building sector to meet the 2020 and 2050 objectives for greenhouse gas emissions, energy use and renewable energy. The balance between energy conservation, indoor air quality and comfort in future energy efficient buildings – both new and existing building stock – has been discussed with the audience.
