The venticool platform paper: “Overview of provisions for ventilative cooling within 8 European building energy performance regulations” is now available. This study aimed to focus on regulatory measures taken or missing regarding ventilative cooling in several countries, which could either inspire developments in other countries or point out specific problems for the market uptake of this technology.

Ventilative cooling (VC) is a way to cool or to prevent overheating in a building by means of ventilation rates higher than hygienic ventilation rates. To this end, natural (such as windows, vents, louvers) as well mechanical (extract or supply fans) ventilation devices can be used.

Annex 62 has been running at full speed since its official start in January 2014: the State-Of-The-Art report is completed; information from over 125 buildings is being processed to document the characteristics of ventilative cooling systems; tools are under development to assess the overheating risk and cooling needs; ways to account for ventilative cooling in building regulations are being analysed with the aim to develop recommendations for future regulations.
