The CENSE project has just been completed and the present workshop will present the main results, in particular the packages with information on the set of CEN standards to support the EPBD and a series of recommendations regarding a second generation of these standards.

By addressing all aspects simultaneously, ESP-r allows the designer to explore the complex relationships between a building's form, fabric, air flow, plant and control. ESP-r is based on a finite volume, conservation approach in which a problem (specified in terms of geometry, construction, operation, leakage distribution, etc.) is transformed into a set of conservation equations (for energy, mass, momentum, etc.) which are then integrated at successive time-steps in response to climate, occupant and control system influences.
