Share this Post:
This document is the abstract of a paper of the EU SAVE ASIEPI project that describes the mechanisms that have been used in some countries to achieve a market transformation of envelope and ductwork airtightness, with a special focus on success stories which could inspire other member states. The paper is based on the analysis of a questionnaire submitted to experts in 13 countries as well as interviews and a literature review.
This paper was presented during the 29th AIVC Conference: Advanced building ventilation and environmental technology for addressing climate change issues, 14-16 October 2008, Kyoto, Japan.
