According to the International Energy Agency, buildings represent over one-third of total final energy consumption.
Maria del Carmen Bocanegra-Yanez, Paul Strachan, Paul Tuohy, Jon Hand, Tim Sharpe
In recent years, as an alternative to continuous control with the use of standard analog automation signals (voltage or current), the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) control was introduced.
Kamil Szkarłat, Andrzej Górka, Radosław Górzeński
Comfort and energy saving are two important concepts treated in current buildings in order to maintain a good air quality reducing the energy consumption.
José Manuel Salmerón Lissén, José Sánchez Ramos, Pablo Aparicio Ruiz, Javier García Ramos, Servando Álvarez Domínguez, José Luis Molina Félix, Elena Barbadilla Martín
Thermal comfort improvement at the lowest energy consumption is a key issue when dealing with sustainability in buildings. An appropriate passive design is mandatory under those circumstances.

The most representative typology of residential buildings of Catalonia has been simulated in TRNSYS to evaluate the impact of both infiltration and natural ventilation. The typology is a block of apartments constructed during 1950-1980. 
Joana Ortiz, Verdiana Russo, Jaume Salom
The transformation of the building energy sector to a highly efficient, clean, decentralised and intelligent system requires innovative technologies like microscale trigeneration and thermally activated building structures (TABS) to pave the way a

The control of heat losses, inwards/out, in nearly zero energy buildings is of high importance. The transmission losses through the building envelope are easily reduced using larger amounts of insulation.
Patrick Ampe, Anthony Tetaert, Leo Van Cauter, Hilde Witters
We conducted observations of wind velocity profiles above a high-density area in Tokyo, Japan, using a Doppler LIDAR system.
Jongyeon Lim, Ryozo Ooka, Hideki Kikumoto
With a tighter building envelope more minimal influences come into consideration.

The objectives of Subtask 4 are to develop design and control strategies for energy efficient ventilation in residential buildings which ensure high indoor air quality.
Jakub Kolarik, Gilles Rusaounen
The objectives of Subtask 3 Modeling are to improve the understanding and develop prediction models on the impacts of outdoor pollutants, thermal environment, building materials and envelope, and indoor furnishing and occupant activities on the in
Jensen Zhang, John Grunewald
First the Subtask will organize a literature survey and make researcher contacts to gather relevant data and existing knowledge on major pollutant sources and loads in buildings, including models. Laboratory testing and model setup to provide exam

Subtask 1 of IEA EBC Annex 68 will aim at defining the metrics to enable a proper consideration of both energy and IAQ benefit in building design and operation
Marc Abadie, Pawel Wargocki
The overall objective of the IEA EBC Annex 68 is to provide scientific basis usable for optimal and practically applicable design and control strategies for high Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in residential buildings.

In the frame of the European project called Bricker, a new prototype of single room ventilation with heat recovery has been developed. This new unit is supposed to be installed in class rooms of an educational institution.
Samuel Gendebien, Jonathan Martens, Luc Prieels, Vincent Lemort
The energy use in buildings is dependent on the choices made during the design, construction and renovation.
Pär Johansson, Paula Wahlgren
Ventilation systems can save heat energy by using heat recovery, but consume electrical energy to power the fans.
Alexander Merzkirch, Stefan Maas, Frank Scholzen, Daniele Waldmann
Ventilation technologies are the key aspects to reach the target of nearly zero energy buildings.
Claus Händel
Conventional Displacement Ventilation (DV) system has been installed in an office of a Zero Energy Building (ZEB).
