The project Keep Cool II proposes different actions to achieve this goal. For this it is divided in two phases. The first one provides analysis and technical tools to overcome the most important barriers by introducing sustainable summer comfort. The second phase is addressing existing networks and policy makers on national and European level by providing them information materials with good practice examples designed especially for the target groups. It will accompanied by dissemination campaigns.

Until recently, the focus of many EPB-regulations and much standardisation work has more strongly been on the energy consumption for space heating. However, in recent years growing attention is being given to the aspect of summer comfort (if possible without active cooling) or to the energy consumption caused by cooling. Nevertheless, it is clear that, generally speaking, the methods for summer comfort and cooling are not yet as advanced as the methods for space heating, where several decades of operational experience have led to proven and mature

Article 4 of the EPBD stipulates explicitly that attention should be paid to indoor climate conditions: “Member States shall take the necessary measures to ensure that minimum energy performance requirements for buildings are setThese requirements shall take account of general indoor climate conditions, in order to avoid possible negative effects…”. This is also listed in the annex of the EPBD: The methodology of calculation of energy performances of buildings shall include… (d) ventilation;…

Based on the idea that the human body continually adapts to a variety of conditions, an adaptive standard, would not include fixed indoor parameters but, would aim to promote (easy) adaptation by using the following principles:
