The AIVC have released their latest update newsletter to highlight a few webinars that have been recording and upcoming that are related to airtightness. There is a upcoming webinar – “Ventilative Cooling – design and examples” on 26th March 2020. The current development in building energy efficiency towards nZEB buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction. One of these major challenges is the increased need for cooling in these highly insulated and airtight buildings, which is not only present in the summer period but also in the shoulder seasons and in offices even in midwinter. Ventilative cooling can be an energy efficient solution to address this cooling challenge in buildings. This webinar presents the main outcomes of IEA EBC Annex 62 on ventilate cooling design as well as give examples of applications and lessons learned.

4pm – Greece
Recordings of previous webinars on the durability of airtightness are now available. The slides and presentations of both webinars “Durability of building airtightness: Assessments through field measurements” and “Durability of building airtightness: Assessment through laboratory testing” held on 30th Jan and 21st Feb respectively. They can be found at; https://www.aivc.org/resources/collection-publications/events-recordings
