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 third part of the webinar series was held on May 19th, 2020 and focused on Moisture Control. Recorded presentations include:

  • Introduction, Kari Thunshelle, SINTEF
  • Strategies for avoiding too high or too low relative humidity in dwellings, Sverre Holøs, SINTEF, Norway
  • Moisture buffering in modern timber constructions, Dimitrios Kraniotis, OsloMet, Norway
  • Understanding moisture recovery in heat/energy recovery ventilation as the basis for new market solutions, Peng Liu, SINTEF, Norway
  • Questions &Answers, Moderator: Peter Schild, OsloMet
