In 2003 the new extension of the German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum, Berlin), which comprises around 12,000 m?? of exhibition space was completed as a low-energy building.
Johann Reiss, Hans Erhorn
The ventilation system in nursery buildings requires particular care to guarantee the safety of children[1,2].
Livio de Santoli, Matteo Mariotti
In Central and Northern Europe several thousands homes conform to the Passivhaus standard havebeen built.
L.Pagliano, P.Zangheri, S.Carlucci
There is worldwide plea to reduce carbon emission. Several governments in East Asia recently have responded by setting higher indoor temperatures in summer.
Zhang Lin, M.L. Fong, K.F. Fong, W.S. Shum
Energy used for building heating, ventilating and air conditioning contributes to a great share in thetotal energy consumption worldwide.
Ha Hai Yen, Ali Youssef, Sezin Eren Özcan, Daniel Berckmans
Due to increasing interest in indoor air quality and demand controlled ventilation in buildings aiming at energy and cost saving, as well as health and comfort aspects, the objective of our work has been the development of a reliable, low cost too

For outsiders, a national energy performance (EP) requirement level is quite a black box.
M.E. Spiekman
This paper analyzes some important aspects toward changing energy paradigma in urban area.To that aim it is important to act synergically on three sides of the energy system:- Demand side: by reducing energy demand;- Supply side: by optimizing gen

Ventilation in schools is very important as it has a direct relation to health and performance of pupils.The status quo of school ventilation in the Netherlands is presented: lots of problems and insufficientsituations were found.

Since the 2002/91/CE EPBD was published, all European countries should making efforts in harmonizing local standards, imposing the assessment of building energy and environmental impact through a common certification procedure.
S. Ferrari, V. Zanotto
Renovation of existing buildings, in order to reduce energy consumption, represents a big market inEurope.
Laure Schwenzfeier, Jean-Jacques Akoua, Martine Bianchina, Serge Buseyne, Daniel Limoges, Raphaël Morel
The emission from materials is an important source of degradation of our indoor air quality.
Samuel Caillou, Paul Van den Bossche, Luk Vandaele
The aim of this study is to analyse the physical characteristics of airborne virus, consider thepossibility of using coupled analysis model and tracer gas for analysing virus diffusion in buildingspace and, based on reports of how the infection sp

In order to respond to global warming and natural resources depletion challenges, industrials from the building sector need to propose an adequate offer. Energy simulation tools can support this process.
M. Trocmé, B. Peuportier
Thermal bridges increase the building energy demand for heating and cooling. For well insulatedenvelopes and buildings with increased energy efficiency, the influence of thermal bridging on theenergy consumption is of major importance.
Heike Erhorn-Kluttig, Hans Erhorn, Marco Citterio, Manuela Cocco, Dirk van Orshoven, Antoine Tilmans
Since 1991 has Sweden regulations on compulsory inspection of ventilation systems (OVK). Thereasons to issue these regulations were many studies on poor indoor climate and health problems for building occupants.
W. Rydholm
This study examines the potential for using passive ventilation systems to meet ASHRAE 62.2requirements as a step in the process for optimizing hybrid ventilation systems.
Annamaria Buonomano, Max Sherman
The French regulation on residential building ventilation relies on an overall and continuous airrenewal. The fresh air should enter the building through the habitable rooms while the polluted air isextracted in the service rooms.
Juslin Koffi, Francis Allard, Jean-Jacques Akoua
Differences might arise between the design and the real load of ventilation systems during operation.Consequently, the fresh air demand usually varies over a wide range.
