Setting sustainable urban development goals and developing energy efficient solutions for buildings are crucial elements of climate action. Urban living is introducing new challenges both for architectural design and technical solutions. Ventilation systems have an important impact both on energy use as well as indoor climate and health in buildings. So, how can we develop good home ventilation solutions fit for urban living?

The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC) together with the Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) and SINTEF Community organized a series of 3 webinars to provide insights from national and international experiences in the field. This first part of the webinar series was held on May 6th, 2020 and focused on Kitchen Ventilation. Recorded presentations include:

  • Introduction, Kari Thunshelle, SINTEF
  • Documentation of cooker hood performance, a laboratory perspective, Svein Ruud, RISE, Sweden
  • Recirculating cooker hoods – possibilities and challenges, Martin Oberhomburg , BSH, Germany
  • Experiences from assessing in-situ effectiveness of cooker hoods, Iain Walker, LBNL, USA
  • Extract cooker hoods – possibilities and challenges, Håvard Augensen, Røros Metall, Norway
  • Questions &Answers, Moderator: Peter Schild, OsloMet
