The current development in building energy efficiency towards nZEB buildings 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.
