Ventilative cooling—i.e., the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces—can be very effective to reduce the cooling energy demand in buildings in summer or mid-season conditions. This webinar was part of a broader series focusing on ventilative cooling in energy performance, within the context of compliance with building regulations in several countries.

The webinar was organised by the QUALICHeCK consortium (www.qualicheck-platform.eu), in cooperation with the IEA project on ventilative cooling “EBC IEA Annex 62” (venticool.eu/annex-62-home), venticool (venticool.eu) and the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre.
