27 April 2018, Vienna – IEA-EBC Annex Definition Workshop on ‘Resilient Cooling for Residential and Small Office Buildings’

proposal for the formation of a new IEA EBC Annex on the topic of Resilient Cooling was presented to the Executive Committee (ExCo) of the International Energy Agency’s Energy in Buildings and Communities programme (IEA EBC) in November 2018.

The ExCo welcomed the idea in general and started the Annex definition phase.

According to the Annex Development and Quality Assurance Process the Annex Concept now is further developed towards a draft Annex Text which will be proposed to the ExCo at its next meeting at Stockholm in June 2018.

Within this process an international Annex Definition Workshop will be hosted in Vienna, on 27 April 2018. The workshop will focus on defining the Annex’s scope and structure, including a Technology Readiness Preliminary Assessment. Researchers who are interested in a possible attendance of this new Annex are warmly invited to join this workshop.
