Under the same perfect leadership as he did last year in Prague, Prof. Robert Gavriliuc from Romania chaired the REHVA 2014 Student competition. Eleven candidates representing nine countries were in competition this year, Romania and Italy being represented by a team of two students. Jakob Hahn presented his work on the development and application of technical monitoring methods; Jana Kmetkova on technical and economic assessment of complex renovation of an apartment building; Willem Mazzotti on secondary fluids impact on ice rink refrigeration system performance; Martin Minin on Energy performance and design guidelines for hollow core slab air distribution system; Nikola Miletic on the analysis of energy performance improvement measures for national museum building in Belgrade; Michela Motta and Elena Anna Ragni on the HVAC energy auditing of three university buildings in Italy; Renars Milles described the sizing principles and benefits of a low pressure terminal device pressure drop ventilation system; Kristian Gvozdenović presented the roadmap to nearly Zero Energy Buildings in 2020 and Nicolae Bajanaru and Andrei Ene presented an experimental and numerical study on achieving a high indoor environmental quality in a classroom.
The Jury was composed of Anatolijs Borodinecs, Manuel Gameiro da Silva, Michal Krajcik, Michael Schmidt, Marija Todorovic, Hans Besselink and Robert Gavriliuc. It was very difficult and hard to come to the winner. After a tight deliberation, the jury declared winner the Romanian team of Nicolae Bajenaru and Andrei Ene from the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest for their work “Achieving a high indoor environmental quality in a classroom: Experimental and Numerical Study “.
All other participants in this competition where awarded with the 2nd prize.
The next day, during the Conference Nicolae Bajenaru and Andrei Ene gave an oral presentation of their work. After this presentation, REHVA President, Karel Kabele, offered a check of 500 € to the winners, a certificate and the Trophy Cup for their university.
