Numerous studies and surveys indicate that typically-installed HVAC equipment operate inefficiently and waste considerable energy due to varied installation errors (faults) such as improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized equipment, and leaky ducts. This article summarises the results of a large United States (U.S.) experimental/analytical study of the impact that different faults have on the performance of an air-source, single-speed heat pump (ASHP) in a typical U.S. single-family house.

This guide, released by the National House Building Council (NHBC) Foundation, presents the impact of window choice on energy performance for a range of typical home types (mid-floor apartment, mid-terrace house, semi-detached house, detached house). The guidance is developed from modelling results using the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP).

La ventilation influence le calcul du niveau E dans les réglementations régionales sur la performance énergétique des bâtiments (PEB). La présente Infofiche examine les possibilités de diminution de ce niveau, tant pour le résidentiel que pour le non-résidentiel. Elle s'adresse au responsable du calcul PEB et à l'auteur de projet, mais également aux entrepreneurs concernés par la ventilation afin de les aider à convaincre sur le choix de solutions énergétiquement efficaces.   Sommaire de cette infofiche:

Building Up SME Energy Productivity   On their own, SMEs don’t consume huge amounts of energy. But collectively, their energy demand is a different story. The IEA estimates SMEs consume around 13% of total global energy demand (that’s 74 exajoules for those keeping track). Yet, approximately 30% of that demand could be eliminated by cost-effective energy efficiency measures, such as implementing energy management software. That would save more energy than Japan and Korea consume in a year!
