Gent, Belgium – Wednesday 16 April 2014
This seminar gives an overview of the current knowledge in the field of energy performance assessment. It aims also at looking into the future of new applications and answers how to close the gap between calculated and real performance. The seminar is organised by the DYNASTEE platform which is facilitated by INIVE, in the framework of the IEA Annex 58 6th international expert meeting in Ghent. The practical organisation is in the hands of University Ghent and BBRI, under the auspices of the Technical Committee Hygrothermics.
The seminar is open to all professionals interested in the real performance characterization of buildings. For more information please download the seminar flyer from here.
After the successful 2nd Summer School in Almeria, it has been decided to organise a 3rd Summer School on the topic of Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Performance Assessment. This summer school will take place at the campus of … Continue reading
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).

During the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), INIVE-DYNASTEE, EC-JRC-IET and ENEA organized a series of 4 half-day workshops on the theme “High Performance Buildings – Design and Evaluation Methodologies”. A summary report of the outcome of that highly successful event can be downloaded from downloaded from here. All papers and presentation of the successful High Energy Performance Buildings event are now available for download. Follow this link to the EC – JRC website to find them directly for download.
OPEN COMPETITION for the Energy Design of High Performance Buildings
Target group: under-graduate, postdoc, PhD students and researchers level
The objective is to assess for a simplified high performance building (a cube), in a chosen climate and associated building energy regulations, the minimum primary energy consumption and GHG emissions for local boundary conditions by optimising thermal characteristics of the building envelop and the choice of building energy systems. The design freedom is in the building construction composition, the specific thermal parameters, the available energy resources and building system technologies. The full text of the competition can be downloaded from here.
