Experiences from the first German EPBD implementations: - Field tests for residentialand non-residential buildings - Certificates for well-known national and international buildings | 2007 | English
Application of new design of wind tower configuration to existing building for passive cooling | 2007 | English
In hot and arid climates, evaporative cooling appears to have significant potential to provide thermal comfort and reduce the energy loads of summer season.
In situ measurement of window air tightness : stakes, feasibility, and first results | 2007 | English
In order to limit ventilation losses in low-energy buildings,balance ventilation systems with high-efficiency heat recovery units are often used.
Goal of the study was to investigate the relation betweenthe level of ventilation and the performance of school children in classroomsIn one school in two classrooms the same ventilation system was installed.
Feasibility study for renewable and low-energy applications in urban building sector | 2007 | English
Global warming and fossil energy sources depletion represent an emergency at Planet scale.
The exergy approach for the evaluation of heating and cooling technologies; first results comparing steady state and dynamic simulations | 2007 | English
Energy saving and emissions reduction are both affectedby the energy efficiency of the built environment and the matching between the quality of the energy carrierand the quality of the required energy.
