The September 2019 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 international platform on ventilative cooling (venticool), & EU relevant information.
The 41st AIVC – ASHRAE IAQ joint Conference “IAQ 2020: Indoor
Environmental Quality Performance Approaches Transitioning from IAQ to IEQ”
will be held during the 14th & 16th of September 2020 in Athens, Greece. It will be a joint
event combined with the 9th TightVent and
the 7th venticool conferences.
Quality (IAQ) has been the core of ASHRAE’S IAQ series of conferences for the
past 30 years. This conference will expand from Indoor Air Quality to
Indoor Environmental Quality
(IEQ). IEQ includes air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics, and illumination
and their interactions. The particular focus of this conference is on
performance approaches including the metrics, systems, sensors and norms
necessary to implement them.
Well-being: Appropriate technical
and operational definitions
Metrics: For all aspects of IEQ
Interactions: Interactions between IEQ parameters
Occupant Behavior: How behavior impacts IEQ and how IEQ impacts behavior – psychological
dimensions of IEQ
Smart Sensors and Big
Data: Sensor properties, data management,
