8 April 2021, Webinar – IAQ and Ventilation Metrics
09:00 Europe/Brussels

The AIVC in collaboration with IEA EBC Annex 86 are organizing a workshop consisting of a series of three webinars on:

In this webinar, we discuss the road towards a robust comprehensive IAQ metric for the assessment of the performance of ventilation. It sets the starting stage for subtask 1 of the new IEA EBC Annex 86 ‘energy efficient IAQ management in residential buildings. After a short introduction, the three speakers will first look at the open issues that remain after the work in Annex 68, then explore methodological updates, future potential and limitations for the DALY method included in the suite of metrics proposed by that annex and finally discuss the newly proposed TAIL rating scheme. After all this, there is time for discussion and input for future work.

This webinar is organized by the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (https://www.aivc.org/) & the IEA EBC Annex 86 “Energy Efficient Indoor Air Quality Management in Residential Buildings” (https://annex86.iea-ebc.org/). The webinar is facilitated by INIVE (http://www.inive.org/).
