Building and HVAC system performance in practice
REHVA Workshops at CLIMA 2016Aalborg, Denmark, 22-25 May 2016
Editors: Chiara Girardi and Francesco Mariottini
The 6th REHVA Report deals with the outcomes of the technical workshops organised during our triennial flagship event, the CLIMA2016 REHVA World Congress.
REHVA Board of Directors and REHVA Team would like to express their gratitude to our hosts, Lars Nielsen, Michael Maast, and the DANVAK team, as well as Per Heiselberg and his team from Aalborg University for their excellent work that contributed to the great success of the Congress.
REHVA organised 25 Technical Workshops during CLIMA 2016. The objective of these workshops was to present advanced technologies and tools, European projects and the work of the REHVA Task Forces that are developing new Guidebooks.
The workshops were practical and interactive sessions with international experts presenting best practices from across Europe. They generated active discussions between the speakers and the audience. This year, REHVA gave the floor to its Supporters (Swegon; Eurovent Association; Eurovent Certita Certification; Grundfos; Belimo; ES-SO), international cooperation partners (SHASE; CCHVAC; SAREK). Work undertaken in European research projects (PROF/TRAC, QUANTUM, Cheap-GSHPs; QUALICHeCK), and by REHVA Task Forces coordinated by the REHVA Technical and Research Committee was also presented. The Task Forces will go on to use the workshop outcomes to develop European guidelines for improving building energy performance and indoor environment quality.
The workshops offered a platform for professionals to enhance and update their technical knowledge, share their experiences and views, and reflect on the advancement of energy efficient HVAC technologies for buildings. REHVA is confident that sharing opinions, new ideas and alternative viewpoints will enrich our knowledge and enhance European research cooperation.
REHVA would like to express our sincere gratitude to the workshop chairs and speakers for their valuable work and for their contributions in finalising this Report.
The REHVA Technical Workshops and this booklet were supported by several companies and organizations. REHVA thanks all of them for their contribution and invites them to continue with our fruitful co-operation.
