This is the 5th of a series of monthly webinars throughout 2020 dealing with the set of EN and ISO standards that allow to assess the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPB) in a holistic manner. For more information on these standards in general, see www.epb.center.

This webinar will introduce and demonstrate the definition of indoor climate and requirements with respect to other health related indoor conditions, as set out in one of the EPB standards, namely EN 16798-1. In particular, it will show the (summer) thermal comfort requirements and how they can be evaluated by the calculation methods defined in the EPB standards.

In the frame of climate change, the overheating issue is getting more and more important for both health and productivity reasons, and strategies to avoid this by enhanced ventilative cooling need to be evaluated.

The webinar will last from 12:00 to 13:30 CET and will answer questions submitted by participants. The programme and the registration link are available here.
