Light lunch with beverages will be served in the registration and poster area.
A short int roduction to the agenda and program.
14.10 Keynote: Energy in buildings
Buildings are responsible for over 40% of our energy consumption and C02 emissions.
Reduced energy consumption and renewable energy sources are the keys to reducing CO2 emissions from buildings. The presentation will give a status and perspectives.
14.30 Keynote: Understanding the indoor environment : Putting people first
How to achieve a healthy indoor environment has been an issue among architects, engineers and scientists for centuries. The realization that the indoor environment is more than the sum of its parts, and that it s assessment has to start from human beings rather than benchmarks, has only been gaining ground in recent years. The presentation will give a status and perspectives.
14.50 Design Process
Some of the most important decisions on energy savings and indoor climate are taken in the very early design stages. The presentation focuses on exploiting synergies in the process of design and new design strategies. Examples on state of the art will be given and it will discuss what we can do today and what is needed in the future to improve the design process.
15.15 Technology and Product Development
Energy and indoor climate performance in buildings can be improved today with smart utilization of existing technology and products. However, there is a need for a holistic focus on integrated product development of new techniques and solutions. The presentation will focus on potentials in integration of different competences / organizations for the products of the future.
15.40 Performance and Endorsement
Energy and indoor climate solutions in buildings influence each other’s performance. Research and legislation should consider and take into account the total performance of buildings - energy and indoor climate – towards a more holistic view of building performance. The presentation will focus on the knowledge of today and give recommendation for the future.
16.05 Panel debate
Panel debate between the speakers and questions from the floor.
17.05 Summary and going forward with Act ive House
Summary and final words from representative from the Act ive House network
17.15- 18.30 Poster presentation with networking and cocktailNetworking and cocktails with posters showing state of the art within research and examples on buildings with a holistic approach to energy and indoor climate performance including single family houses, row houses, multi- storey buildings, offices and schools – new build and renovation.
