Overview of provisions for ventilative cooling within 8 European building energy performance regulations

Ventilative cooling (VC) is a way to cool or to prevent overheating in a building by means of ventilation rates higher than hygienic ventilation rates. To this end, natural (such as windows, vents, louvers) as well mechanical (extract or supply fans) ventilation devices can be used.

Ventilative cooling: Keep cool and lower peak energy demand
