BUILT ENVIRONMENT FACING CLIMATE CHANGE

 

The planet's average surface temperature has risen about 0.9 degrees Celsius since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere. Most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years, with the five warmest years on record taking place since 2010. The number of intense rainfall events, extreme storms, hurricanes and tornadoes has been increasing since 1950. Nowadays, the real scenario is completed by the fast declination of the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice (over the past decades), the increasing by about 30 percent of the acidity of surface ocean waters (since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution), the risen of the global sea level by about 20 cm (in the last century). Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that the climate-warming tendency over the past century is very likely due to human activities.

 

CLIMA 2019 congress will address four main topics - all related to the built environment, the biggest energy consumer of a given national or regional economy:

  1. Modern HVAC&R&S Technology and Indoor Environmental Quality
  2. High Energy Performance and Sustainable Buildings
  3. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for the Intelligent Building Management
  4. Sustainable Urbanization and Energy System Integration

Modern HVAC&R&S Technology and Indoor Environmental Quality

Over 90% of the typical human life is spent indoors. Many of us have adapted to the indoor realm as our "natural" environment IEQ encompasses indoor air quality (IAQ), which focuses on airborne contaminants, as well as other health, safety, and comfort issues such as aesthetics, potable water surveillance, ergonomics, acoustics, lighting, and electromagnetic frequency levels. All these IEQ parameters could not be optimized without advanced HVAC&R&S technologies. The buildings could not be refurbished without advanced HVAC&R&S technologies.

 

CLIMA 2019 proposed sub-themes are: Criteria for thermal environment and ventilation; HVAC in residential buildings and schools; Demand controlled, hybrid and passive HVAC systems, Filtration, air cleaning and air distribution; Solar thermal and PV systems; Heat pumps and refrigeration; Natural and mechanical smoke extraction systems; Water and wastewater systems and components etc.

 

High Energy Performance and Sustainable Buildings

Buildings shall be constructed and renovated with an appreciation of the importance of providing high-quality and sustainable interior environments, with minimum costs for all users.

 

A building design is deemed to be cost-effective if it results in benefits equal to those of alternative designs and has a lower whole life cost, or total cost of ownership. For example, the HVAC system alternative that satisfies the heating and cooling requirements of a building at the minimum whole life cost, is the cost-effective HVAC system of choice. Components of the whole life cost include the initial design and construction cost, on-going operations and maintenance, parts replacement, disposal cost or salvage value, and of course the useful life of the system or building.

 

We suppose that CLIMA 2019 sub-topics as: Low and zero energy building case studies; Predicted and real energy performance of buildings; Energy performance requirements, compliance assessment and cost optimality; Simulation models and predictive tools for the buildings HVAC, IEQ and energy; Building components and double skin facades; Occupant behavior and energy demands in buildings; Future and Emerging Technologies (FET): Nano-, micro- and bio-technologies for buildings components and HVAC systems; Mandatory and voluntary certification and labelling schemes for new and existing buildings; Renovation of historic buildings

could attract an important number of researchers, industrials and young students.

 

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for the Intelligent Building Management

Building management system (BMS) is a collection of software and hardware to seamlessly monitor and lead an important and vital part of a building. Task of this collection is constant monitoring of different parts of building and leading in way which performance of different parts of building together is efficient, undesirable usages decrease and pleasant and safe environment is created. Information and communication technology provides this needed infrastructure to immediately exchange information in long distances.

 

Today, the most part of the current technology in normal buildings is not smart, unfortunately. Innovative ICT is the key to future smart buildings as part of the truly sustainable built environment. Without substantial advances in ICT our buildings will continue to be poorly energy performant and of course, not sustainable at all.

 

That is why CLIMA 2019 has not neglected topics like: New ICT-based solutions for systems and building automation; Energy Efficiency through behavioral adaption based on ICT solutions; Indoor Environment control with advanced BMS solutions; Sensors and methods to control and authenticate indoor environment; Advanced fault detection and diagnostics; Integrated BIM solutions for buildings and systems; Digitalization of buildings equipment etc.

 

Sustainable Urbanization and Energy System Integration

In 1900, 15% of a global population of 1.5 billion people lived in cities. At the end of the 20th century urban areas in the world have grown considerably. According to the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations, in 1990 there were 10 so called “megacities” with more than 10 million inhabitants, representing less than 7% of the global urban population. By 2010, the number of megacities was 27, the population they contained grew to 460 million, and these agglomerations accounted for 6.7% of the world’s population. Since 2008 cities host more than 50% of the inhabitants of the planet with the share expected to increase up to 67% by 2050. Furthermore, cities are located on less than 5% of the Earth’s land surface and yet use around 80% of the resources and are responsible for approximately 80% CO2 global emissions.

Sustainable urbanization means reducing energy use in cities by managing the way energy flows into, through and out the city.

 

With justified interest in this area CLIMA 2019 will contribute by offering opportunity to researchers and experts in this field to present their work on subtopics like: Grid interaction of nZE, green and passive buildings; Architectural design integration; Health, demographic change and wellbeing; Energy management and distributed energy systems (heat and power generation, district heating and cooling); Innovative heating and cooling solutions using geothermal energy; Large scale and seasonal thermal storage; Smartness indicators; Demonstrating innovative nature-based solutions in cities etc.

Chair: Eric Melquiond, President of Eurovent Certita Certification

 

Speakers: Erick Melquiond - President of Eurovent Certita Certification, Thibaud De Loynes -Project Director of Prodbim, Cormac Ryan -Project Director of Copilot

Short description: As quality is critical to risk management, we have developed a portfolio of solutions to help you de-risk your products and projects. Third party certification provides the best assurance that “you get what it says on the box”. This reassurance adds value as it de-risks products and projects. Eurovent offers third party certification of HVAC products and projects. We cover the entire lifecycle of HVAC from manufacture to installed operation. The workshop will introduce you to:

  1. ECP certification programme: focus on Indoor Air Quality
  2. HVAC Products data from PIM to BIM: PRODBIM
  3. The installation and operation of HVAC equipment: COPILOT Building Commissioning Solutions

EUROVENT CERTITA CERTIFICATION is a major European certification body providing voluntary 3rd party certification in the field of Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC-R), offering its customers a one-stop service solution thanks to the extensive scope of its activities. 

PRODBIM, as part of the Eurovent group, provides a new service to HVAC manufacturers for the management of their product information (PIM). With the new digital usage of the Building Information Modelling (BIM), and the multi standards and countries codes, there is a need to deliver multi-formats of product data to the market. The new BIM standard for the information exchange (standard file IFC format under ISO 16 739) redefines the catalogue and custom product data to send to softwares, and brings 3rd party confidence requirement on the product data. We will highlight and explain what the requirement for product data qualification means for the building, and how PRODBIM acts as a bridge between PIM and BIM as 3rd party qualified database service provider.   

COPILOT supervises and Eurovent-certifies HVAC commissioning to enhance installed quality and performance. We verify and certify that HVAC systems are designed, installed, tested and documented in accordance with client requirements. COPILOT uses Client Workshops to identify objectives and define KPIs. These Client KPIs drive design, construction and operation commissioning.

Certified Commissioning Managers apply COPILOT protocols and undertake commissioning on site. We verify HVAC performance by Comfort Alerts and seasonal testing. COPILOT solutions can be used on all building projects.

Halton_Logo_RGB

Title: Indoor Environment Design for Smart Buildings - UPDATED !

Organiser: HALTON

Chairs: Anna Gagneur, Halton Oy

 

Speakers: Prof. Arsen Melikov, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Dr. Panu Mustakallio, Halton Oy, Prof. Risto Kosonen, Aalto University

Short description: This workshop presents and discusses the intelligent indoor climate technologies for smart buildings. The workshop focuses to non-residential buildings. It starts from the overall target of providing and ensuring wellbeing for building occupants.

The need for paradigm shift in generating indoor environment that complies with the needs of smart buildings is presented. Design options focused on providing indoor climate for single or group of occupants in smart buildings is discussed. In such buildings the design of indoor climate system sets boundaries for smart management of indoor conditions. Important question is how to assess indoor environment in future buildings. Current and future methods for control and assessment of indoor environment is presented and discussed.

The design of Halton Vario demand based indoor climate system for smart office building is introduced. This design enables flexible variable airflows in spaces with different needs, based on intelligent room units with sensors and user interfaces. The system responds to floor layout changes and operates in energy efficient manner. Case study of Halton Vario system in European research project LowUp is presented.

Room systems as a service platform for smart buildings is introduced. The performance of the concept is demonstrated in seven meeting rooms of an educational building. The main benefits of the novel, smart system compared to the standard ones are the improved monitoring of the ventilation system performance, enhanced controllability of indoor climate in energy efficient manner, and improved users’ perception on the indoor climate. Overview of the trends in smart management of indoor climate conditions with the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) for buildings as established by the European Union is presented.

There will be discussion and brainstorming of the subject between the presentations.

 

rhoss

Title: Costs and benefits of antibacterial filter and its effects on energy saving, human health and worker productivity

Sponsor: Rhoss SpA, Italy

Chairs: Leonardo Prendin - Marketing Director

 

Speakers: Leonardo Prendin - Marketing Director & Micaela Ranieri - Product Manager

Short description: The outdoor air pollution and the insufficient hygiene of HVAC systems often result in the low quality of indoor air. The World Health Organization estimated that 50% of indoor biological contamination comes from the air-handling system. Some studies demonstrated that the air filters are sources of pollution due to the accumulation and proliferation of bacteria on the surface. Furthermore, the presence of contaminants in indoor environments can have a negative impact on health and productivity of the occupants, who spend about 80% of their time indoors (of which 30-40% in offices). To guarantee not only a better indoor air quality but also a lower health risk and an increase in worker productivity, a new concept of biocidal filtration has been introduced.

The workshop will present the results of a literature review aimed at exploring how to integrate the health and performance effects on building occupants into the economic benefits of the antibacterial filter. In detail, the research focuses on the methods used to evaluate costs and benefits produced by the application of a biocidal filter, comparing it with a traditional one, by means of computing both direct costs (related to hospitalization and antibiotic treatment) and indirect costs (mainly identified with the loss of working days). Therefore, this analysis want to enhance the focus on energy technology developing an idea of the impact on human health and employee performance.
