Because we spend most of our time in enclosed spaces, thermal comfort of buildings rose increasinglyand then energy consumption correspondingly is increased, aggravating the pollution of naturalenvironment.
Kuznik, F.; Virgone, J.; Reisdorf, R.
Many modern office buildings have highly glazed facades. Their energy efficiency and indoor climateis, however, being questioned.
Blomsterberg, A.
It is often claimed that energy is consumed, not only in everyday conversation but also in scientificdiscussions associated with energy and environmental issues.
Schmidt, D.; Müller, D.
This paper describes ongoing energy benchmarking studies of double-skin façade buildings. Benchmarking methodology is discussed. Some preliminary results are presented.

Indoor humidity is an important parameter influencing the occupants’ perception of indoor air quality, and is also a cause of harmful processes that may occur on surfaces of materials, such as cracking of walls or microbiological growth.
Woloszyn, M.; May, M.; Kwiatkowski, J.
This paper focuses on energy performance compliance checks to the French EP-regulation RT 2000 and the way they are performed in Rhône-Alpes, Burgundy, and Franche-Comté.
