AIVC Workshop | Towards higher-performing buildings: The role of airtightness and ventilation
The objective of this workshop is to discuss and identify ways to improve the quality of our homes with respect to airtightness and ventilation, as well as discussing the impact suboptimal performance has on energy consumption and health of the occupants. Also of interest are the impacts of mandatory airtightness targets and how best to implement these, if at all.
Specific topics include:

The 39th AIVC conference: "Smart ventilation for buildings" will be held on 18 and 19 September 2018 in Juan-les-Pins, France. It will also be the 7th TightVent conference and the 5th venticool conference.
Energy and climate goals have been shaping many countries’ policy and legislative agendas in the EU and beyond in the past decade. The building sector plays a crucial role in achieving these goals, considering the energy use attributed to buildings and its huge potential for improved energy performance.

The major roles of the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC) are to disseminate information and to facilitate international collaborative projects in the fields of ventilation and airtightness. Seven projects have just been approved for the 2017-2021 operating period at our the last AIVC board meeting: Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) metrics, ventilation requirements, airtightness testing, and performance of fans, residential cooker hoods, and heat recovery, are key issues addressed in these projects.
