Favorite On-line Training Webinars

The present situation (Spring 2020) that the Coronavirus has created, concerning travelling and accommodation, has made the DYNASTEE board to decide that it will support on-line training. It will do so by organising a series of webinars during September (on Wednesday each week from 10-12 h). Each webinar will be composed of two lectures and introduce an exercise using benchmark data that will be made available to the participants for training.

Find the proposed program here for the On-line Training for Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment.

Title: DYNASTEE On-line Training for Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment

What is in for you? Having attended to the webinars the participant will be able to understand the topic of dynamic analysis applied to in-situ measured data series, the basic mathematical and statistical analysis techniques, applicable software and benchmark data to build a level of skill.

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 result of the successful symposium, is an article in the REHVA Journal issue 3, 2019, p. 70-74 that you can find here.

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 25th 2019

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