Air ventilation is one of the top energy users in residential buildings. Smart ventilation equipment and controls help to reduce the amount of energy use attributable to ventilation in homes while maintaining high indoor air quality. Ventilation can also be used as a resource for utility grid demand response if done intelligently. A key component of the smart ventilation concept is the use of controls to ventilate more when doing so provides an energy or air quality advantage and/or a resource to the power grid, and less when it provides a disadvantage.

15 December 2017, 10:30-12:00 Brussels time (CET)   We spend 90% of our life indoors in buildings, so the quality of the indoor environment has a major impact on our health, well-being, and productivity. The health, comfort and well-being of building occupants are basic requirements and a human right, therefore both policy makers and the building industry have to take their role in ensuring healthy and comfortable living conditions for people.
