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 second part of the webinar series was held on May 13th, 2020 and focused on Ventilation requirements, trends and thermal comfort. Recorded presentations include:

  • Introduction, Kari Thunshelle, SINTEF, Norway
  • Ventilation and IAQ in Nordic countries – Status, trends and opportunities, Kari Thunshelle, SINTEF, Norway,
  • A developer’s perspective on urban home ventilation issues, Ole Petter Haugen, Selvaag Bolig, Norway
  • Temperature Zoning in Highly-Insulated Buildings, Laurent Georges, NTNU, Norway
  • Questions &Answers, Moderator: Peter Schild, OsloMet
