IEA EBC Annex 68: “Indoor Air quality Design and Control in Low Energy Residential Buildings” approved.

13-11-2015 | EU

In November 2015, the Executive Committee of the  International Energy Agency Energy in Buildings and Communities (IEA EBC) programme approved Annex 68 “Indoor Air quality Design and Control in Low Energy Residential Buildings” for a four years working and reporting phase. The project will be investigating how to ensure that future low energy buildings are able both to improve their energy performance and to provide comfortable and healthy indoor environments.

 

The two main objectives for the project are:

  • to provide a scientific basis for the design and operational strategies of buildings that have minimal energy consumption, and at the same time maintain very high standards regarding indoor environmental quality based on the control of sources, sinks and flows of heat, air, moisture, and pollutants under in-use conditions;
  • to collect and provide data about properties for transport, retention and emission of chemical substances in new and recycled materials under the influence of heat and moisture transfer.
