Energy saving and improved comfort by increasing air movement

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


In this study, the potential saving of cooling energy by elevated air speed which can offset the impact of increased room air temperature on occupants' comfort, as recommended in the present standards (ASHRAE 55 2004, ISO 7730 2005 and EN 15251 2007), was quantified by means of simulations with EnergyPlus software. Fifty-four cases covering six cities (Helsinki, Berlin, Bordeaux, Rome, Jerusalem and Athens), three indoor environment categories I, II and III (according to standard EN 152512007) and three air velocities (
