The occupant density in buildings is one of the major and overlooked parameters affecting the energy consumption and virus transmission risk in buildings. HVAC systems energy consumption is highly dependent on the number of occupants. Studies on the transmission of COVID-19 virus have indicated a direct relationship between occupant density and COVID-19 infection risk. This study aims to seek the optimum occupant distribution patterns that account for the lowest number of infected people and minimum energy consumption.

Na początku 2021 roku weszły w życie przepisy zmieniające ustawę o wspieraniu termomodernizacji i remontów.
Ustawa przewiduje utworzenie Centralnej Ewidencji Emisyjności Budynków (CEEB), która ma służyć do zidentyfikowania źródeł emisji z budynków.

Az idei évben a Pécsi Tudományegyetemen (PTE) több beszerzés valósult meg Emberi Erőforrás Fejlesztési Operatív Programok keretében, melyek közül a közvélemény számára az egyik legérdekesebb minden bizonnyal a PTE Műszaki és Informatikai Karra a közelmúltban megérkezett hőkomfort-mérő bábu.

Progressing the scientific basis of indoor environmental quality is essential to understand which aspects can be better optimised to substantially reduce energy use in buildings. In recent years, IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC) international research projects have been investigating for this purpose both indoor air quality and thermal comfort.

Thermal comfort, indoor air quality and daylight are key factors in the comfort of building occupants. Despite the interconnection of these aspects and the related requirements, the way to achieve indoor air quality and thermal comfort are not clear enough in some EU countries.

Data is fundamental to understand how much a building consumes, how much it is efficient and whether thermal comfort is adequate. However, how should this data be evaluated? Is it still possible to increase energy efficiency of buildings? A solution would be to make a comparison with similar contexts: for example, how much does a building consume on average under specific climatic conditions? How much energy can it obtain from its installed renewable energy sources?

Compared to its Nordic neighbours, Lithuania is a relatively high energy consumer (225 kWh/m2) with a residential building sector that has considerable energy saving potential.

The Aktiv-Stadthaus in Frankfurt am Main is the first large apartment building in a city to be built according to the Efficiency House Plus standard. The first residents moved in during the summer of 2015. The aim of its innovative energy concept is to generate more renewable energy over the space of a year than is used by the building itself.
