The one and a half-day workshop on “ventilative cooling – needs challenges and solution examples” was held in Brussels, March 19-20, 2013. About 60 participants from 15 countries gathered to discuss how and when strategies for increased ventilation with outdoor air can reduce the cooling load while maintaining good indoor environmental quality. The programme consisted of five topical sessions with contributions from various countries and international organizations…

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’.
A workshop on ventilative cooling will be held in Brussels, 19-20 March 2013 within the framework of the IEA annex 62 project. More information on the workshop at :

On 10 – 11 October, 2012 , 160 persons from 28 countries discussed possible solutions to improve thermal comfort and indoor climate in the [nearly] zero-energy buildings of today and tomorrow at the 33rd AIVC – 2nd TightVent Conference in Copenhagen.

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.

venticool has organized several sessions on challenges and perspectives for ventilative cooling, within the framework of the 33rd AIVC – 2nd TightVent, 2012 conference. The conference combines a mixture of workshops focused on the conference topics, presentations on invitation and presentations from call for papers.
The topical sessions nested within the ventilative cooling track are:
- International initiatives on ventilative cooling
- Ventilative cooling in residences
- Advanced ventilative cooling concepts in Nearly Zero‐Energy Buildings
- Ventilative cooling in building regulations
