This paper describes an educational tool developed at LASH ENTPE (France) laboratory.
In 2005, the Executive Committee of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems (ECBCS) program approved the start of a new four-year research project on building commissioning.
High Lighting Quality Targets with Minimum Electric Power Density: Results of Experimentation | 2006 | English
We have conducted a campaign of testing efficient lighting installations during 6months in the area of Lyon, France. 26 work places were tested, each of them with aspecific lighting scheme.
It is often claimed that energy is consumed; this is not only done in everyday conversation but also inscientific discussions associated with energy and environmental issues.
This paper analyzes the indoor hygrothermal loads measured in 27 detached houses and in 13apartments. A survey was conducted during the years 2003-2006 in Estonia.
This paper presents an analysis of the transient thermal performance of dynamic insulation.
This paper summarises the work of the LowEx co-operation /1/. The aim was to promote rational use ofenergy by encouraging the use of low temperature heating systems and high temperature cooling systems ofbuildings.
The EIE 2003 SAVE ENPER EXIST project (www.enper-exist.com) aims to address the specificproblems of the existing buildings in the scope of the introduction of the Energy Performance ofBuildings Directive (E
In this paper, we discuss the characteristics, of diatomite, a moisture-absorbent material used for anew air-conditioning system. Diatomite powder is formed into grains (diameter: 8 mm) with a slantrotatingprocessing machine.
The objective of the paper is to present a new educational concept for improving the accessibility towhole building Heat, Air & Moisture (HAM) simulation models developed in the simulation environmentHAMLab.
Important properties of the indoor air quality are temperature and humidity. Very often in new and oldbuildings the temperature is too high or varies too strongly.
Lighting is a substantial energy consumer, and a major component of the service costs in manybuildings. Lighting renovation was done on the Department of Electrical and CommunicationsEngineering at the Helsinki University of Technology.
State of the Art of Double Skin Facades in Europe The results of WP1 of the BESTFAÇADE Project | 2006 | English
The project BESTFAÇADE accumulated the state of the art of double skin façades in seven European countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Portugal and Sweden).
An Interactive Vocational Training Tool for the Energy Performance Buildings Directive | 2006 | English
The building sector constitutes approximately the 40% of the total energy consumption in EU. TheDirective 2002/91/EC provides a precise legislative framework for improving the energy performanceof the built environment.
An important part of IEA 34/43 is concerning validation of building simulation models.
The IEA, section ECBCS (Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community systems), has launched the project Annex 45 ‘Energy Efficient Electric Lighting for Buildings’, of which subtask B deals with innovative technical solutions.
This paper describes ongoing energy benchmarking studies of double-skin façade buildings. Benchmarking methodology is discussed. Some preliminary results are presented.
Denmark has long experience with mandatory labelling of existing buildings.
