RESSEEPE Newsletter – June 2015

We are glad to present to you the RESSEEPE Newsletter – June 2015. What’s inside? Here is a quick glance of some of the points covered:

  1. High Performance Buildings Conference
    Last July 2014 the Heat and Mass Transfer Technological Center (CTTC) of UPC – BARCELONA TECH participated in the International High Performance Buildings Conference that took place in Purdue University (Indiana) USA, presenting a paper entitled: ”Analysis of IAQ based on modelling of building envelope coupled with CFD&HT room airflow”, within the framework of WP5 Task 5.2 Indoor Environmental Quality.
  2. RESSEEPE On show – Europaveckan
    Europaveckan – ”European week” – is a regional initiative in the northernmost regions in Sweden, where a number of activities are performed to spread information about the European Union. It is organised by the Europe Direct information offices in May.
  3. Validation of the photovoltaic powered electrochromic window prototype
    An electrochromic window (EC) can change its light transmission properties in a controlled and reversible manner when a small electric current flows through the device. This technology provides a dynamic control on the impinging sunlight and thereby reduces the energy expenses by 19% and 48% in the cooling and lighting demand respectively.
  4. Stakeholders engagement activities
    Stakeholder engagement is a very important part of any building interventions. Coventry University developed user satisfaction surveys to evaluate the user responses to the building in terms of comfort and general condition of the building and building facilities.
