Increase energy efficiency in systems and buildings and improve indoor environment: How to validate comfort and energy reduction

December 8, 2009 - 12:00pm

TNO is a research institute which is active in the energy saving and indoor environment. We like to present our research, our goals and discuss the challenges and the opportunities for cooperation. Therefore we like to give a presentation about the following topic and we are also interested in a presentation of LBL and UC Berkeley. An important topic in the building industry is near zero energy buildings. Most countries in Europe implemented programs to advance this goal in one way or another. In near-zero energy buildings, the interaction between building and systems will increase; ventilation will be more and more linked to heating, passive cooling, air conditioning and domestic hot water production systems, sometimes in a unique system facilitating energy recovery and synergies between the various HVAC functions. This implies new challenges as for example the ventilation system shall no more be isolated from other systems. The optimisation of these newly coupled technologies will imply mayor challenges towards test facilities and models. There is also a strong link toward thermal comfort and indoor air quality.
