Favorite Pre-announcement Summer School 2021 in Almeria, Spain

For the 9th time DYNASTEE will organise a Summer School in 2021 on Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment. More than 190 PhD students and researchers have participated in the eight preceding Summer Schools and their enthusiastic response has made us decide to continue organising this dedicated course.  

Dates

16 – 23 June 2021

The six day course will be intermitted by a weekend. We have learned that a break is very much welcomed and a social event will be organised during the break. 

Venue

CIESOL at the University of Almeria, Spain

Fee

The participation fee will be announced on the DYNASTEE website by the end of March.

Accommodation

The organisers will announce a special booking arrangement for early registrations together with the participation fee.

What is new

Arrival in the morning of 16 June. During the afternoon of the first day a get-to-know and poster presentation is scheduled. Participants and lecturers will learn about the work and level of experience of the participants on testing and analysis. Three days will be devoted to linear regression and discrete time methods (LORD) and after the weekend three days are devoted to continuous time methods (CTSM-R). The course concept will remain the same as in previous years which means that about half of the time is devoted to lectures and the other half to performing exercises using benchmark data. Departure during the afternoon/evening of Wednesday 23 June.

Feel free to contact mjose.jimenez@psa.es or hans.bloem@inive.org to be placed on the mail-list and you will receive updates of the announcement.

Webinar Presentations: How to determine the real performances of buildings?

Building characterisation by co-heating

A common method to evaluate the thermal performance of a building in situ is the co-heating test. This webinar tries to crystallise the current knowledge on the co-heating test, as applied for assessing the thermal characteristics of the building envelope.

The webinar was organised in the framework of the IEA Annex 58 ‘Reliable building energy performance characterisation based on full scale dynamic measurements’ through the DYNASTEE platform (www.dynastee.info) which is facilitated by INIVE (www.inive.org).
