high performance buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The Dynastee network (DYNamic Analysis, Simulation and Testing applied to the Energy and Environmental performance of buildings) is an informal grouping of organisations actively involved in the application of tools and methodologies applied to this field.   This is the 3rd newsletter.   CONTENTS:

International building legislation is setting stronger and stronger requirements for the energy performance of buildings. An actual example is the impact of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in the European Union (EPBD) on the national requirements in the Member States. The improved energy performance of buildings can’t be achieved by additional insulation or more effective buildings systems only. A major influence factor on the energy quality is the ventilation technology and also the airtightness of the building envelope.

The conference was organised by the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre of the International Energy Agency together with Energie- und Umweltzentrum am Deister (E-U-Z) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics. In parallel to the AIVC conference the international symposium on "Airtightness of Buildings and Ductworks" took place accompanied by an exhibition of industry developments in this field. The conference papers will be offered soon for download on the AIVC website (http://www.aivc.org/).
