IEA EBC - Energy in Buildings and Communities

This issue of the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre’s (AIVC) newsletter provides links and information on newly released AIVC publications and major upcoming AIVC events. Moreover, this issue outlines completed and on-going AIVC projects from 2011 to 2017 and redirects to more detailed information available on the AIVC website. Last but not least, Dr. Andy Persily presents significant advance in the fields of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and ventilation, with a new approach for estimating C02 generation rates from building occupants.   Contents include:

The current development in building energy efficiency towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB) represents a number of new challenges to design and construction. One of these major challenges is the increased need for cooling in these highly insulated and airtight buildings, which is not only present in the summer period but also in the shoulder seasons and in offices even in midwinter. Ventilative cooling can be an energy efficient solution to address this cooling challenge in buildings.
