6 June 2014, Webinar - Ventilative cooling: Keep cool and lower peak energy demand
10:00 Europe/Brussels

Ventilative cooling is the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces. It can significantly reduce the cooling energy demand in summer or mid-season conditions. Therefore, ventilative cooling is increasingly common in NZEBs.

This BUILD UP Web Seminar addressed the following:

  • Challenges for ventilative cooling in the context of NZEB - the venticool platform;
  • Potential energy savings and the new IEA EBC Annex 62 on ventilative cooling; and
  • Case studies - demonstrated high level summer comfort in real buildings.


  • Welcome | Peter Wouters, INIVE eeig on behalf of BUILD UP
  • Ventilative cooling -- a hot topic! | Peter Wouters, INIVE eeig
  • IEA EBC Annex 62 Ventilative Cooling | Per Heiselberg, Aalborg University
  • Examples of naturally cooled buildings | Flourentzos Flourentzou, ESTIA Innovation park EPFL
  • Questions and Answers
