22 November 2013, Webinar – Airtightness testing part 2: status and trends in competent tester schemes in Germany, the Czech Republic and France

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing number of airtightness tests performed in Europe either for specific high performance buildings programmes or for a wide range of buildings in regulatory contexts. This has led to the development of competent tester schemes to contain potential legal and competition issues.

The objective of this webinar was to give information on the status and trends in airtightness testing in Germany, the Czech Republic and France including the details and feedback on competent tester schemes.

6 May 2020, Webinar – Kitchen Ventilation

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?

10 November 2020, Webinar – The Science and Communication of Energy-Efficient Indoor Environments

Progressing the scientific basis of indoor environmental quality is essential to understand which aspects can be better optimised to substantially reduce energy use in buildings. In recent years, IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC) international research projects have been investigating for this purpose both indoor air quality and thermal comfort. The embodied impacts of buildings and their services systems are also a focus of EBC's research.

25 January 2018, Webinar – Ductwork airtightness: Standardisation’s on- going work and an overview of status and trends in Sweden, Japan, Spain and Portugal

Work performed so far in the field of ductwork airtightness has shown that it may lead to important energy losses and increased fan energy use. Nevertheless, a recent survey has shown that ductwork airtightness does not seem to be taken into account (neither in regulation nor in energy performance programmes) in most European countries. Progress is therefore needed to better understand the impact of ductwork airtightness on energy use (fan, cooling and heating) and indoor air quality.

The objective of this webinar was:

6 June 2014, Webinar - Ventilative cooling: Keep cool and lower peak energy demand

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.

25 May 2012, Webinar – The need for structured air leakage databases in energy conservation in buildings policies

There are several initiatives to collect building airtightness data from field measurements whose number increases rapidly with the trend towards low-energy buildings. The objective of this webinar was to give an overview of the needs identified in several countries and reasons behind the development of air leakage databases. This webinar was organised within an AIVC-TightVent project whose aim is to facilitate the development of air leakage databases.

4 September 2018, Webinar – Using Metal Oxide Semiconductor (MOS) sensors to measure Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) for ventilation control

MOS VOC sensors gain increasing attention in the ventilation community because of their low price and claimed ability to supplement or even substitute CO2 sensors for demand control. Even though there are many “IEQ” meters available on the market, where these sensors are used, the amount of scientific studi`es focused on their reliability and applicability is still limited.
