National University of Singapore’s (NUS) School of Design and Environment (SDE) building, the SDE4, certainly stands out for its unique structure.   SDE4 is NUS's foremost net-zero building, and the first of its kind in Singapore to be built from scratch. SDE4 gets its power through a "solar farm" on its roof which comprises over 1,200 solar photovoltaic panels and boasts a range of innovative building strategies that focus on improving the well-being of its users.

Annex 62 “Ventilative cooling” of the IEA Technology Collaboration Programme “Energy in Buildings and Communities” was an international research project running from 2014 to 2018.   The research focus of the annex was on the development of design methods and compliance tools related to predicting, evaluating and eliminating/minimizing the cooling need and the risk of overheating in buildings as well as on the development of new attractive energy efficient ventilative cooling solutions.

New standardization projects relevant to ventilative cooling applications have officially been initiated under Technical Committees (TC) in the European Committee for Standardization (CEN/TC 156) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO/TC 205) since 2017. These projects aim to make technical documents focusing on design aspects and setting criteria for ventilative cooling, and natural & hybrid ventilation systems in residential and non-residential buildings.

The 40th AIVC conference will be held on 15 and 16 October 2019 in Ghent, Belgium. It will also be the 8th TightVent conference and the 6th venticool conference.   Conference Scope   In the past 40 years, since the first oil crisis in the seventies, energy and climate goals have been shaping many countries´ policy and legislative agendas. 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.

  Ventilative cooling reduces overheating, improves summer comfort and decreases cooling loads. It is therefore one of the most efficient ways to improve summer comfort. Conditions on site, thermal inertia, solar control and other constraints have an impact on the choice of the system and its design. The overall performance is linked to good sizing, design, correct usage of thermal storage, and last but not least a correct control, commissioning and maintenance.
