Project Description

The project aims to deliver an open-source, performance assessment tool to address the climatic cooling potential of natural ventilation systems in Ireland. The project builds on a previous CIT research, which developed a low energy testbed building in 2012. The proposed SEAI RD&D project will provide a platform for the next phase of the testbed initiative at CIT and will build on participation in IEA- EBC Annex 62 on Ventilated Cooling - http://ow.ly/xBVW30dgFg3. The project will help bridge the knowledge gap surrounding overheating risk in low energy buildings and will be the first source of ventilated cooling potential assessment, within an Irish context.
