DCV - Demand Controlled Ventilation

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Air ventilation is one of the top energy users in residential buildings. Smart ventilation equipment and controls help to reduce the amount of energy use attributable to ventilation in homes while maintaining high indoor air quality. Ventilation can also be used as a resource for utility grid demand response if done intelligently. A key component of the smart ventilation concept is the use of controls to ventilate more when doing so provides an energy or air quality advantage and/or a resource to the power grid, and less when it provides a disadvantage.

Beyond Energy Efficiency: A Guide to Advanced Demand-Side Management Applications   How can energy services companies (ESCOs) get in on the demand response action? Their first step is to become demand-side management (DSM) enabled beyond energy efficiency. Not only do Demand-Side Management applications contribute to environmental sustainability objectives, but they can also offer unprecedented opportunities for the buildings sector to reap multiple economic benefits beyond energy efficiency.

  Add Value with Advanced Demand-Side Management   Demand Side Management (DSM) is evolving fast. Abundant new techniques and technologies are now available for application in buildings: HVAC optimisation, integrating on-site renewables, especially solar generation... and of course, huge leaps forward in Demand Response (DR). In the upcoming free online session on 30 May, DEXMA R&D Director Miguel Cruz will discuss:

The AIVC workshop: “Is ventilation the answer to indoor air quality control in buildings? Do we need performance-based approaches? will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 14-15 March, 2017. The event aims to identify the pros and cons of performance-based approaches and metrics that can be considered to assess the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance of ventilation systems, as well as to draft guidelines for their use in standards and regulations.

The Test Reference Environment of Lleida (TRE-L) is a full scale test facility and was constructed in Spain in 2008 for the study of thermo-electrical behavior of ventilated Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) components under outside climate conditions. This testing facility has been developed as an outdoor controlled facility for testing building integrated PV ventilated modules under forced regimes.

This app is based upon the "62MZCalc.xls" Excel spreadsheet that accompanies each copy of the Standard. You can do pretty much everything in this app that you can do in the Excel spreadsheet, in addition to creating multi-system projects and emailing results so you can perform further analysis. Other advantages over the spreadsheet include:
