The 39th AIVC conference, coupled will be held in Antibes Juan-les-Pins Conference Centre (France) together with the 7th TightVent conference and the 5th venticool conference.

The Conference is organised by CETIAT, ADEME and INIVE.

The event will place its focus on:
- Smart ventilation, IAQ and health relationships
- Ventilation and airtightness
- Ventilative cooling – Resilient cooling

A call for abstracts is opened until March 20th.

01/04/2017 - Acoustic signature of heat pumps: CETIAT involved in a new international project
CETIAT participates to a new project of the International Energy Agency about the acoustic signature of heat pumps (Annex 51 of the IEA Programme on Heat Pumping Technologies). The primary aim is to increase the acceptance of heat pumps with respect to their noise and vibrations. A second focus is to disseminate knowledge at different levels (manufacturers, acoustic consultants, installers, legislators).

The project (2017-2020) will concern air-to-water, water-to-air, air-to-air and brine-to-water units. CETIAT will represent France in cooperation with Cetim. The other participating countries are Austria, Germany and Sweden.

13/04/2016 - CETIAT co-author of two European reports on compliant input data for building energy performance calculation
The national legislations implementing the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) require a calculation of the energy performance, as well as an energy rating on the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The input data for this calculation must be compliant (i.e. obtained with the definitions and procedures of the legislation), with an evidence of this compliance. In addition, they must be easily accessible.
The EPBD also requires that Member States establish an independent control system for the EPCs, with effective, proportionate and dissuasive penalties for non-compliance.

The final version of a report from the European project QUALICHeCK, whose CETIAT is co-author, has just been published. It presents interesting approaches from different countries for compliant and/or easily accessible input data, including: product databases, procedures for innovative products, qualifications of persons or companies, sets of pre-calculated values, rules for consistent display of product characteristics.

Another report recently published by QUALICHeCK, with CETIAT as co-author, shows outlines for compliant input data and ways to decide of non-compliance and to treat it.
