Last Week Daniel Coakley of IES spoke on the topic of “Modelling Natural ventilation in the IESVE: Case studies & Research Outlook” at a half day seminar, organised by Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), for researchers, designers, engineers & architects.
This CIT Technical Seminar: Ventilative Cooling & Overheating Risk was organised in collaboration with IEA-EBC Annex 62 and presented state of the art utilisation of ventilation for reducing cooling energy demand and addressing the risk of overheating in low energy buildings.
In his presentation, Daniel covered;
- an overview of Natural Ventilation simulation in the VE;
- the use of natural ventilation and adaptive thermal comfort by the winning IES ASHRAE ‘Zero-Net Energy’ (ZNE) Challenge team;
- and a future view of IES R&D work in the Building Operations space thought the EINSTEIN project.
