2. Evaluation of Different Concepts for Ventilative Night Cooling by
Building Simulations (Angela Simone, Ph.D., Member)
SEMINAR 4 (ADVANCED) Cooling Potential with Increased Night Ventilation in Low Energy Buildings
In post-occupancy studies of low energy buildings, elevated temperature levels is a commonly reported problem. Ventilative cooling can be an attractive and energy efficient solution to reduce peak load and energy use in new and existing residential buildings. Equipment required for ventilative cooling in residential buildings is available and has been shown to be cost-effective in many climates. The seminar presents the concept of ventilative cooling together with studies of the potential impact on energy consumption and indoor environment in different climatic regions.
