The REHVA Brussels Summit is an occasion for REHVA members, supporters and stakeholders to meet and network in the capital of Europe. Latest REHVA activities and strategy developments are covered during Committee Meetings, while workshop sessions would offer a technical platform for EU projects implementation. Focus, off course, on the latest insights from the HVAC sector for the implementation of the updated EPBD standards at the REHVA Conference.
Second edition of the REHVA Brussels Summit, on 12-13 November 2018: This two-days event rich of contents, is an occasion for REHVA Members, Supporters and stakeholders to meet and network in the capital of Europe. In this year’s edition, the Summit will tackle the latest REHVA activities and strategy developments during the Committee Meetings, and will offer a technical platform for EU projects implementation during workshops sessions, and focus on the latest insights from the HVAC sector for the implementation of the new EPBD standards at the REHVA Conference. The first day, 12 November, will be dedicated to REHVA Committees Meetings and to EU Projects CEN-CE and ALDREN workshops (venue: MAI, Rue Washington 40, 1050 Brussels). The just started CEN-CE project is developing a European training and qualification scheme based on the new set of EPB standards. The workshop at the Brussels Summit will involve REHVA experts in the critical evaluation of the training material, towards an active involvement in the deployment of such scheme. ALDREN consortium, instead, will propose to the Brussels Summit participants a training on the ALDREN procedure based on the European Common Voluntary Certification Scheme for non-residential buildings. This intense day will be closed by the traditional REHVA Dinner (venue: pentahotel Brussels City Center, Chaussée de Charleroi 38, 1060 Brussels; registration upon payment - 85€). The REHVA Conference “Smart buildings for smart users - implementing the new EPBD” , co-funded by the European Projects Mobistyle, hybridGEOTABS and Quantum, will be held on 13 November (venue: Pentahotel Brussels City Center, Chaussée de Charleroi 38, 1060 Brussels). The panelists will debate on the latest policies development as well as on current HVAC trends linked to the new EPBD, SRI and digitalisation. A networking lunch is offered between the two sessions of the Conference. Download here the Conference agenda. You can find here a draft schedule of the REHVA Brussels Summit 2018.

REHVA Conference "Smart buildings for smart users - implementing the new EPBD" This year’s REHVA Brussels Summit Conference will discuss key technology and policy trends following the publication of the 2nd EPBD recast with focus on smart buildings, smart energy systems, and the role of digital technologies in building performance monitoring, commissioning and maintenance. • The morning session provides latest news about the new EPBD officially published in April 2018. The speakers from the European Commission will present the EPBD and the newly introduced smart readiness indicator, as well as the requirements regarding inspection and digital monitoring of HVAC systems in the new EPBD. • The IAE Annex 67 will introduce their work on energy flexible buildings, while REHVA TRC experts will present some research initiatives on smart buildings and introduce the new REHVA Task Force on “Smart buildings and user comfort”. • The morning session will feature presentations of two European projects, one of them on Smart users, user interaction and smart devices (Mobistyle project), the other one on digital tools for technical monitoring and quality management of HVAC systems to close the performance gap (QUANTUM project). • The morning session will be closed by a moderated interactive panel discussion among speakers and the audience. After a networking lunch, the session will continue with presentations of further applications and digital tools in the design and operation of HVAC systems, and provide the audience with practical insights into the latest HAVC technology and market developments form the invited industry representatives. • First the hybridGEOTABS project will present the model predictive control tool for the design of complex, integrated HVAC system, like hybrid geothermal heat pumps. • Then session will continue with presentations from leading manufacturers, such as Siemens, Daikin, and Rhoss, who will present latest market trends regarding the use od BAC for predictive maintenance of HVAC systems, as well as latest HVAC market trends. • The full day conference will close with a final question and answer session and closing remarks by the chairing REHVA Board members.
