The current development in building energy efficiency towards nZEB buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction.
One of these major challenges is the increased need for cooling in these highly insulated and airtight buildings, which is not only present in the summer period but also in the shoulder seasons and in offices even in midwinter.

Deep renovation is a key action to drastically reduce energy demand and achieve the EU vision of a decarbonised building stock by 2050. However, only 1% of European buildings are being renovated yearly and shallow retrofits persist with low impact on energy consumption.
The StepUP project is developing new technologies and solutions to make building renovation more attractive and affordable.

Air infiltration in buildings has multiple consequences on energy use and indoor environmental quality which depend on the location and distribution of leakages. Among others, pollutant infiltration and air draft are highly affected by leakage distribution. In current practice, leakage detection is frequently performed together with an airtightness test.
