high performance buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The aim is to achieve a nearly zero-energy city. Turkish stakeholders form part of a project consortium at the cutting edge of energy efficiency.

International building legislation is setting stronger and stronger requirements for the energy performance of buildings. An actual example is the impact of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in the European Union (EPBD) on the national requirements in the Member States. The improved energy performance of buildings can’t be achieved by additional insulation or more effective buildings systems only. A major influence factor on the energy quality is the ventilation technology and also the airtightness of the building envelope.

The conference was organised by the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre of the International Energy Agency together with Energie- und Umweltzentrum am Deister (E-U-Z) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics. In parallel to the AIVC conference the international symposium on "Airtightness of Buildings and Ductworks" took place accompanied by an exhibition of industry developments in this field. The conference papers will be offered soon for download on the AIVC website (http://www.aivc.org/).

The implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) has caused in most of the EU Member States more severe requirements for the energy demand of buildings. In order to meet these requirements, not only buildings components with better U-values and more efficient building systems have to be used, also the ventilation losses have to be reduced. A contribution to this necessary reduction is the improvement of the building envelope airtightness, mainly the airtightness of building components and joints.
