High energy performance buildings - Design and Evaluation Methodologies

Start/Stop Date:
24–26 Jun 2013
EC Institute for Energy and Transport, ENEA, DYNASTEE and INIVE
BBRI Conference room (nearby Gare du Midi), Boulevard Poincaré 79, 1080 Brussels (BE)
Focus Areas:
Buildings, energy efficiency
Type of Event:

Topics at this event focus on the most important parts of building energy consumption:

  • building energy needs and the auxiliary gains due to climate boundary conditions.
  • aspects of efficiency of building energy installations, energy resources and technology
  • consumer behaviour and thermal gains,
  • calculation methods, standards and regulation (CEN and national standards)
  • optimisation of energy use using ICT (intelligent environments, urban areas)
  • design case studies and building simulation for nearly-zero energy buildings

Invited speakers

  • Malcolm Bell (UK) - Achieving near zero carbon housing: The role of performance measurement in design and construction processes.
  • Hans Erhorn (DE) - The age of positive energy buildings has come
  • Jorma Pietiläinen (FI) - Total building energy monitoring – basis for performance verification
  • Dick van Dijk (NL) - Standardized calculation methods in relation to the EPBD
  • Federico Noris (IT) - Net ZEB Monitoring and Verification
  • Jordi Cipriano (ES) - Energy optimization of public and social housing buildings using ICT based-services.
  • Laurent Socal (IT) - New features in EN 15603; overall energy use and definition of energy ratings
  • Paul Strachan (UK) - Modelling of High Energy Performance Buildings
  • Henrik Madsen (DK) - Modelling and evaluation of building thermal performance from smart meter readings
  • François Garde (FR) - Solution sets and case studies to reach the net zero energy goal
  • Tin Tai Chow (HK) - Energy Use Aspects of Green Building Assessment in Hong Kong
  • Paolo Bertoldi (IT) - Example of a High Performance Building from the Green Building Programme
