38th AIVC - 6th TightVent & 4th venticool Conference, 2017 | Ventilating healthy low-energy buildings
The need to reduce the energy demand of buildings is reflected in the legislation and policies of many countries. However, there is increasing concern about their adverse effects on occupant health and comfort in low energy buildings. These issues are being considered by some international energy conservation policy initiatives for buildings that seek to simultaneously reduce energy demand and provide acceptable indoor environment quality.

During the past few months, venticool has pursued its efforts to raise awareness, exchange information and discuss issues on ventilative cooling, namely in collaboration with IEA EBC Annex 62 and QUALICHeCK.
This issue provides information on the platform’s latest joint achievements.

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.

Raising awareness, exchanging information and discussing issues on ventilative cooling are the major motivations behind venticool.
The venticool newsletter 05 emphasizes how the sharing of positions and views with stakeholders, policy makers and standard writers based on scientific knowledge and feedback all play a crucial part in the platform's work.

The venticool platform was inaugurated in September 2012 to answer the growing need for international collaboration on ventilative cooling. Since then, the platform has facilitated the programme development of IEA Annex 62 with the organization of key meeting points at workshop and conferences. It is now key partner of Annex 62 and the European project QUALICHeCKVenticool is firmly anchored at an international level and gradually becomes THE international meeting point for ventilative cooling activities.
