It has finally arrived! The REHVA report no 6 “Building and HVAC system performance in practise” with reports from workshops from CLIMA 2016 is on my desk! It is full of information on building and HVAC system performance in practise!
Swegon Air Academy participated in the CLIMA 2016!
And we have organized the first workshop on “Understanding HVAC Operational Performance” at the CLIMA 2016! Ian Knight, John Woollett and I were the lecturers!
Goal for our workshop
This participatory workshop explored the potential for informative and practical guidelines for the operation of buildings and input for the building regulations. The aim is to discuss what information and data are needed, how it should be provided, and how it might be applied with regard to the updating of a number of standards in this area. Data from operational performance of HVAC systems and components (results from the project iSERVcmb) need to provide information about what can be achieved in the building ´s operation. In the workshop the focus will be on operational data from HVAC systems/components, what can be found from the data at the operational level versus legislative needs, and what opportunities exist to improve the operational performance of HVAC equipment.
The workshop was attended by total of 40 attendees (mainly from Europe) and it was a good mix of practitioners (engineers, designers), manufacturers (mainly HVAC and BEMS) and people from educational institutions (universities). The concept of the workshop was to discuss several points which the presenters have considered to be of importance, such as data at operational level versus legislative needs and the use of monitoring data in future legislation.
