Activity B.1 includes a systematic assessment of potential benefits, limitations and performance indicators of resilient cooling systems under a wide range of application scenarios and other boundary conditions. We generate Resilient Cooling ‘Technology Profiles’ to clearly summarize and promote the operational characteristics and benefits of each technology/system. Recommendations for good implementation, commissioning and operation are being developed. Barriers to application and further research opportunities are being identified, which will inform the research activities of Subtask B.
The previous approach for assessing the resilience of cooling strategies is mainly based on qualitative comparison and based on results from individual research, which lacks common boundary conditions and universal indicators for resilience evaluation.
This study aims to provide a consistent approach for assessing the resilience of different cooling strategies by dynamic simulation. Various cooling strategies will be tested on the reference buildings under present and future weather conditions in different climate zones, and proposed key performance indicators will be applied to evaluate summertime overheating risk and climate resistance of cooling strategies.
