Looked at as a group, buildings form one of the largest consumers of energy in the world.
Environmental concerns indicate that a reduction in the energy consumption of buildings is urgently needed. However in this push for change, the importance of indoor environmental quality, particularly thermal comfort and indoor air quality, must not be forgotten.
In this BUILD UP Web Seminar, you will learn about:
1) the significance of indoor air quality in terms of its impact on health and productivity, and associated costs;
2) the inseparable connection between indoor air quality and building energy demands, including examples of efficient technologies for maintaining good indoor air quality;
3) the need for an approach to building research, design, and operation that recognises this connection.
