Following the successful first series of 6 webinars on the Energy Performance of Buildings standards (EN/ISO) supporting the implementation of the EPBD, an additional series of 4 webinars has been scheduled on the set up and results of a series of example calculations on buildings and systems using the EPB standards.
The goal of these example calculations is to demonstrate the:
- functionality (the calculation works all together on practical cases, available features to describe energy properties of buildings and HVAC installations),
- sensitivity (impact of single data or group of data on selected calculation results), and,
- usability (clear data input; description of practical system configurations, useful results and avoiding unnecessary input complexity),
of individual calculation modules and of the whole building calculation procedure.
This 9th webinar*) will focus on whole building energy performance calculations for residential buildings. At this webinar we will demonstrate how the EPB standards enable to identify the impact of building and system design (insulated / non-insulated, system technology choice, renewables inclusion), outdoor climate (cold to hot) and assumed use patterns (such as occupancy and comfort schedules on the overall energy performance. We will also demonstrate how (national) choices for partial and overall EPB numerical indicators can effectively control the energy performance and set reliable minimum energy performance requirements.
