IEA EBC approves extension for AIVC (2017-2021)

On June 9, the executive committee of the IEA Technical Collaboration Programme Buildings and Communities (EBC TCP), previously called the implementing agreement on buildings and Communities, approved a new extension period for the AIVC for the period 2017 till 2021, i.e. a 5 years extension.

 

During this new period, no radical changes in the overall operation of the AIVC is foreseen but, of course, there will be an evolution in the priorities for the AIVC.

 

8 specific topics of interest have been identified, i.e.:

Ventilative Cooling – Design and examples

The current development in building energy efficiency towards nZEB buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction. One of these major challenges is the increased need for cooling in these highly insulated and airtight buildings, which is not only present in the summer period but also in the shoulder seasons and in offices even in midwinter. Ventilative cooling can be an energy efficient solution to address this cooling challenge in buildings.

Feedback from our Webinar on Ventilative Cooling Design and Examples

The recordings and the slides of our recent webinar: “Ventilative Cooling – Design and examples” held on March 26th, 2020 and organised with the support of IEA-EBC annex 62 on ventilative cooling and the venticool platform, and in cooperation with the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre, are now available online.
