6 June 2014 | BUILD UP webinar:”Ventilative cooling: Keep cool and lower peak energy demand”

Ventilative cooling is the use of natural or mechanical ventilation strategies to cool indoor spaces. It can significantly reduce the cooling energy demand in summer or mid-season conditions. Therefore, ventilative cooling is increasingly common in NZEBs.

This BUILD UP Web Seminar addressed:

  • Challenges for ventilative cooling in the context of NZEB - the venticool platform;

  • Potential energy savings and the new IEA EBC Annex 62 on ventilative cooling; and

  • Case studies - demonstrated high level summer comfort in real buildings.


  • Welcome | Peter Wouters, INIVE eeig on behalf of BUILD UP
