The objectives of the collaborative work conducted by the Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC) Implementing Agreement are derived from the major trends in construction and energy markets, energy research policies in the participating countries and from the general objectives of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The principal objective of the EBC is to facilitate and accelerate the introduction of new and improved energy conservation and environmentally sustainable technologies into buildings and community systems.

Ventilative cooling refers to the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces, and thereby both improve thermal comfort and reduce space cooling energy use which may be critical to achieve new or renovated NZEB. The most common technique is the use of increased ventilation airflow rates and night ventilation but other technologies may be considered as well.
This community will focus on research issues but also on practical implementation, quality issues, opportunities and barriers.

The AIVC (Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre) is the official information centre of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in the field of energy efficient building ventilation. The key challenge is to combine a good indoor climate with low energy use. As part of its activities, the AIVC has a newsletter, an extensive database of publications, an annual conference and a whole range of technical publications.
