Based on an application for standardization by the company ISOVER in October 2007, the German Industrial Standard DIN 4108 – 11 has been cleared by the responsible bodies in DIN for review by the committee NA005-56-93AA, “Airtightness”. The work on the details of the standard has been going on for seven and a half years now. The standard will be entitled “Thermal Insulation and Energy Savings in Buildings – Part 11: Minimum Requirements for the Durability of Adhesive Joints with Adhesive Tape and Adhesive Compounds for Use in Airtight Layers”.
The European Commission has mandated CEN to produce a set of standards to support MemberStates for the national implementation of the EPBD. This paper focuses on one of these standards,EN ISO 13790, "Energy performance of buildings - Calculation of energy use for space heating andcooling". It describes the history of this standard which started with a simplified calculation of the energyuse for heating of residential buildings only.
The International Organization for standardization (ISO), Technical Committee 163 "ThermalPerformance and Energy Use in the Built Environment" (ISO/TC 163) has produced and will producesets of standards by reference to which performance requirements can be expressed at various levels,from materials to complete buildings. A coherent set of new work items concerning the energyperformance of buildings has been launched in April 2007 which are briefly presented in this paper.
The International Organization for standardization (ISO), Technical Committee 163 "ThermalPerformance and Energy Use in the Built Environment" (ISO/TC 163) is dealing with development oftools that can be used to design and construct or retrofit energy efficient buildings and installations. Theoverall aim for this is to reduce our dependency of non-renewable resources and to reduce theemission of harmful substances to the air. Methods are needed for the evaluation of the energyperformance of complete buildings and parts of buildings or building installations.
Methods are needed for the evaluation of the energy performance of complete buildings and parts ofbuildings or building installations. In order to arrive at energy efficient buildings, materials and productsthat effectively contribute to the thermal performance of the building and its installations must be used.For that standards dealing with the design and evaluation of materials, components and systems playan important role.
PASLINK is the grouping of 14 European research institutes involved in the performance assessment of the thermal and solar characteristics of building components under real climate conditions. Most of the members are performing semi-standardised tests using the PASSYS/PASLINK test cells. IQ-TEST is the European thematic network project aiming at further developing common quality procedures for testing, calibration, data gathering, cleaning and analysis, interpretation of test results and scaling/replication to real buildings, maintenance of test infrastructure.
The European RTD project REVIS, Daylighting products with redirecting visual properties (contract JOE3- CT98-0096), started in October 1998 and was completed by the end of 2000. The project was coordinated by TNO. The presentation highlights the objectives, means and some of the main results.
