A new tool developed within the framework of IEA-EBC Annex 62 project has been launched. The ventilative cooling potential tool (VC tool) aims to assess the potential effectiveness of ventilative cooling strategies by taking into account climate conditions, building envelope thermal properties, occupancy patterns, internal gains and ventilation needs. The excel-based tool is freely accessible and available at the venticool website.
