Concerning the two other standards selected as pilots by REHVA, the post-enquiry work is going on in the relevant Working Groups. CEN/TC 156/WG23 has proceeded in revision of prEN 16798-17 so that most of the comments have been already resolved by WG23. However, the enquiry revealed a need for better consistency between individual standards. This issue is still under discussion among the team leaders of all CEN-EPD projects. So, some time will still be needed before the revision can be finalised. Concerning prEN 16798-3, the revision work is also ongoing but more challenging due to hundreds of comments to be resolved.
REHVA will organise a workshop around the neZEH project during CLIMAMED 2015 on 10-11 September in Juan-les-Pins, France. The workshop High energy performance hotels on track to nearly zero energy buildings co-chaired by Stefano Corgnati, REHVA President-elect, and by Theocharis Tsoutsos, neZEH Project Coordinator, will present key result of the European project “Nearly Zero Energy Hotels (neZEH)”.
