low energy 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.

http://www.intense-energy.eu/uploads/tx_triedownloads/INTENSE_WP3_D3_1.pdf This document explores the concept of today's best practice being tomorrow's norm. Info on experiences and lessons learned in Western Europe is analysed and presented with the specific CEE audience in mind. It's good see some well documented info being promoted.

Focusing on energy consumption and indoor thermal climate the following topics have been investigated: • Light and Heavy floor heating system • Insulation thickness in the floor construction • Linear thermal transmittance at foundation/floor construction • Control of the floor heating system Supply temperature Supply temperature controlled by the outdoor temperature Night lowering of the room temperature Start/stop difference (Dead band) • Room temperature and energy consumption • Floor coverings

The Effinergie association was created in May 2006 to promote low energy buildings in France. The initiative was taken by regional authorities, and particularly the Alsace, Franche-Comté, Languedoc-Roussillon and Rhône-Alpes regions. The objectives are to combine and optimize implementation of regional approaches, and to federate construction professionals and local communities.
