AIVC's VIP 38: What is smart ventilation?

In March 2017, AIVC identified smart ventilation for buildings as a new and important topic to be addressed. Several actions were defined by AIVC Board about this topic in order to exchange and disseminate information on this topic. A working group of AIVC experts from several countries was created. One of its tasks was to agree on a definition of smart ventilation.

We are now pleased to announce the release of our  Ventilation Information Paper no 38: What is smart ventilation? aiming to present and illustrate this definition of “smart ventilation”.

IAQ sensors for smart ventilation of buildings

6 March, 2018 | IAQ sensors for smart ventilation of buildings

AIVC defines smart ventilation as a process to continually adjust the ventilation system of a building in order to provide the desired Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) benefits while minimizing energy consumption, utility bills and other non-IAQ costs (thermal discomfort, noise, etc.). Smart ventilation responds to one or more of the following: building occupancy, outdoor conditions, electricity grid needs, operation of other building systems, direct sensing of contaminants.

China joins the AIVC

The AIVC is very pleased to welcome China as new participating country! China will be represented in the AIVC board by Guoqiang Zhang, Dean of Institute of Sustainable Urbanization and Construction Innovation, Hunan University and Weijun Chen from Hunan Shinilion Energy Saving Sci. and Tech. Corp. Ltd.

The AIVC at present counts 14 countries composing the AIVC Board demonstrating the growing interest on air infiltration and ventilation issues in new and renovated buildings.
