Summer School 2015 in Denmark

For the 4th time DYNASTEE organised together with CIEMAT (Spain), ESRU (UK-Scotland), DTU (Denmark) and DYNASTEE under auspices of INIVE the Summer School on Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Assessment. Participants (25) from 11 countries joined the group to … Continue reading

SUMMER SCHOOL 2014 1 – 5 September 2014, Leuven, Belgium

For the 3rd consecutive year, DYNASTEE is organising with collaboration of universities, national research organisations and industry, a Summer School on the topic of Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Assessment.

Today, more and more data related to building and building components originate from outdoor testing under time-varying and dynamic conditions, or from real life use of buildings. The main purpose of this summer school is to train the students in a methodology for evaluation of measured data. PhD students might be interested to know that 2.5 ECTS are awarded for attendance at this Summer School and a further 2.5 ECTS for additional work on a proposed exercise or centred on the students’ own projects.

Seminar Proceedings: Real building energy performance assessment

Gent, Belgium – Wednesday 16 April 2014

This seminar gave an overview of the current knowledge in the field of energy performance assessment. It aimed also at looking into the future of new applications and answers how to close the gap between calculated and real performance. The seminar was organised by the DYNASTEE platform which is facilitated by INIVE, in the framework of the IEA Annex 58 6th international expert meeting in Gent. The practical organisation was in the hands of University Ghent and BBRI, under the auspices of the Technical Committee Hygrothermics.

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).
