Ventilation is essential for the health and comfort of building occupants. It is particularly required todilute and/or remove pollutants emitted by occupants' metabolism and activities.
F. Richieri, T. Salem, P. Michel
The Annex 46, within the IEA ECBCS programme, is meant to influence the decision making processin the retrofit of public and governmental buildings that determines the use of energy-saving measures in building retrofits.
Florian Stößel, Hans Erhorn, Heike Erhorn-Kluttig, Alexander Zhivov
The paper provides the results of monitoring on the specifics of indoor air quality in Latvian dwellingbuildings.
Anatolijs Borodinecs, Zanna Budjko
Passive cooling of buildings is one of the energy-saving measures that can be employed in climateswith predominantly sensible cooling loads.
M. S. Janirek, P. Charvat, J. Stetina
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
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
For outsiders, a national energy performance (EP) requirement level is quite a black box.
M.E. Spiekman
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

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.
W. Zeiler, D.J.B.W. Schuiling, G. Boxem
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

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
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
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
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

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
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
