Favorite Symposium Conclusion

DYNASTEE took the initiative to organise a symposium, following the 6th Expert meeting of IEA EBC Annex 71 at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao. The aim of the symposium was to discuss the future role of the building stock in a changing society facing the climate challenges for companies, governments, researchers and most importantly, the citizen. Seven international renowned experts were invited to present their view on the energy transition and the development of an energy infrastructure integrating information and communication technologies and renewable energies in the building stock. The outcome of the successful symposium, including the presentations … read further

Favorite Summer School 2019 | Dynamic Methods for whole Building Energy Assessment | 9 – 20 SEPTEMBER 2019, Granada, Spain

After 7 very successful editions of the Summer School on “Dynamic methods for whole building energy assessment” the organisers have decided to offer, in collaboration with the University of Granada, a two-weeks doctoral course that focuses more on pragmatic application of dynamic calculation techniques, meaning that the analysis of building energy data is of high importance and can give potentially high value information to utility and end-user. The focus will be on increased complexity, presenting different approaches and application to benchmark data. Read the full text of the Announcement, the Introduction to the summer school as well as more information about the lectures.

The cost for the two-weeks Summer School is 475 Euro. In case that the participant decides to follow the course for one week, either Level 1 or Level 2, the cost is 290 Euro. Participants should do a pre-registration by sending a notification to Marta Ruiz, e-mail: mruiz.serviciosexternos@psa.es

Deadline for submission is July 15th 2019

Upon pre-registration further information will be sent about accommodation and participation fee payment procedure.

Favorite SYMPOSIUM: “The Building as the Cornerstone of our Future Energy Infrastructure – The importance of dynamic and real data for reliable assessment”, 10-11 April 2019, Bilbao, Spain

In the transition towards a new energy system, based on minimal carbon use and circular economy principles, the building is the cornerstone of the future energy infrastructure. Energy use in  European buildings is still around 40 % of the total final energy use. Decarbonisation of power and heat are high on the agenda of EU Member States. Present initiatives by governments for a proper energy transition …. read further.

Favorite Outcome of the Summer School 2018

Outcome of the 7th Summer School on “Dynamic methods for whole building energy assessment” organised by the INIVE-DYNASTEE and PSA-CIEMAT in collaboration with CIESOL (Joint Centre University of Almeria-CIEMAT dedicated to research in Solar Energy and its applications), in Almería, Spain. The focus has been more on pragmatic application of developed dynamic calculation techniques to support the analysis of building energy data that is of high importance and can give potentially high value information to utilities and end-users. The focus this time has been on increased complexity and variability, and several approaches have been applied to benchmark data.

A follow-up Summer School has been discussed which may take place in Summer 2019 again in Spain. Follow our organisational progress at the DYNASTEE web-site
