The video recordings of this BUILD UP Web Seminar are available here.


Ventilative cooling is the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces.

It can significantly reduce the cooling energy demand in summer or mid-season conditions. Therefore, ventilative cooling is increasingly common in NZEBs.


This BUILD UP Web Seminar will address the following:

  • Challenges for ventilative cooling in the context of NZEB - the venticool platform;

  • Potential energy savings and the new IEA EBC Annex 62 on ventilative cooling; and

  • Case studies - demonstrated high level summer comfort in real buildings.



  • Peter Wouters, International Network for Information on Ventilation and Energy Performance (INIVE eeig)

  • Per Heiselberg, Aalborg University (Denmark)

  • Flourentzos Flourentzou, ESTIA (Switzerland)
