Energy conservation technologies for mitigation and adaptation in the built environment: the role of ventilation strategies and smart materials
The 34th AIVC conference will focus on research, technologies, policies and market transformation to employ in an optimal way, proper mitigation and adaptation techniques aiming to reduce the energy consumption of buildings and improve the urban microclimate.
Another focus will be on the energy impact of ventilation and air infiltration while ensuring good indoor air quality and thermal comfort as well as, on converging work on smart materials to reduce the carbon footprint of the building sector.
The conference will consist of 3 or 4 parallel tracks devoted, to a large extent, to the following topics:
- Ventilative cooling
- Cool roofs
- Envelope and ductwork airtightness
- Ventilation system performance and indoor air quality
