25 May 2012 | The need for structured air leakage databases in energy conservation in buildings policies



There are several initiatives to collect building airtightness data from field measurements whose number increases rapidly with the trend towards low-energy buildings. The objective of this webinar was to give an overview of the needs identified in several countries and reasons behind the development of air leakage databases. This webinar was organised within an AIVC-TightVent project whose aim is to facilitate the development of air leakage databases.
