The venticool platform was inaugurated in September 2012 in response to the needs felt to increase awareness regarding ventilative cooling and to foster exchanges on this topic both for practitioners and researchers. 15 months later, its relevance is clearly confirmed:
The IEA EBC Annex 62 project on “Ventilative cooling” has been approved for a 4-year working phase and will use venticool as key communication partner;
The 2012 and 2013 AIVC conferences, together with the March 2013 workshop have been major discussion places on this topic and key elements to develop the annex work plan;
The Intelligent Energy Europe project “QualiCheck” recently approved will address ventilative cooling issues related to compliance and quality of the works in collaboration with venticool.
This opens a period of 4 to 5 years at least with great developments expected on ventilative cooling. We hope you will have a good taste of it with this newsletter.
