13 May 2020, Webinar – Ventilation requirements, trends and thermal comfort
15:00 Europe/Brussels

Setting sustainable urban development goals and developing energy efficient solutions for buildings are crucial elements of climate action. Urban living is introducing new challenges both for architectural design and technical solutions. Ventilation systems have an important impact both on energy use as well as indoor climate and health in buildings. So, how can we develop good home ventilation solutions fit for urban living?

The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC) together with the Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) and SINTEF Community organized a series of 3 webinars to provide insights from national and international experiences in the field.

The second part of the webinar series was held on Wednesday May 13th 2020. The focus was on Ventilation requirements, trends and thermal comfort.
