The April 2021 issue of the “Energy Efficiency and Indoor Climate in Buildings” newsletter has just been released. This monthly online newspaper contains relevant information on the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC), the building and ductwork airtightness platform (TightVent Europe), the platform for resilient ventilative cooling (venticool), the Indoor Environmental Quality – Global Alliance (IEQ-GA) & EU relevant information. The paper is available at the first week of every month at: http://news.inive.org/
We would like to encourage you to subscribe to get informed on a regular basis on our platforms’ activities.
The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (https://www.aivc.org/) & the IEA EBC Annex 86 “Energy Efficient Indoor Air Quality Management in Residential Buildings” (https://annex86.iea-ebc.org/) are organizing a workshop consisting of a series of four webinars on:
The Air Infiltration & Ventilation Centre has just released Ventilation Information Paper no 41: Impact of wind on the airtightness test results. This paper aims to present and discuss the calculation method of standard ISO 9972 regarding the uncertainty induced by wind; gather published knowledge and determining what further research is needed on the quantification of the wind impact on airtightness tests results (including numerical simulations, laboratory and on-site measurements studies) and; give guidance for minimizing and better estimating the wind impact on airtightness tests results.

The International BUILDAIR Symposium will be held on June 25th and 26th, 2021. In view of the still tense corona situation, the meeting will take place as an bilingual online conference this year.
The Symposium offers an ambitious programme. Among other things, the presentations will deal with measuring techniques, gluing and sealing difficult details, minimizing the air permeability of materials, quality assurance for very technology-intensive objects and measuring technology for very tall buildings. In addition, the question is discussed whether there can be leakages that can be tolerated. Take a look at the lecture programme right now!
The conference “IAQ 2020: Indoor Environmental Quality Performance Approaches Transitioning from IAQ to IEQ”, organized by ASHRAE and AIVC, will be held on September 13-15, 2021 in Athens, Greece. The conference will also be the 9th TightVent and 7th venticool … Continue reading →
The recordings and the slides of the recent AIVC-TightVent webinar: “Building airtightness improvements of the building stock- Analysis of European databases” held on January 19th, 2021, are now available online!
Tuesday, January 19th, 2021 10:00-11:15 CET Air infiltration in buildings has multiple consequences on energy use and indoor environmental quality. Therefore, in the last 10 years many countries have introduced requirements for building airtightness in their EP-regulation. Those requirements often … Continue reading →
