The group of Activity B2 of Annex 69 contributes to Indoor Air 2020 with Workshop 10: Guidelines on adaptive thermal comfort application in building design and operation.
The workshop discussion was self-organised and announced at the Indoor Air Conference homepage. 25 people from all over the world participated in the discussion of 1.5 hours.

Here is the workshop programme:
[WS10] Guidelines on adaptive thermal comfort application in building design and operation

Organizer: Runa T. Hellwig (The University of Aalborg University Denmark, Denmark)

Adaptive thermal comfort guidelines have been developed within the work of Annex 69: “Strategy and practice of adaptive thermal comfort in low energy buildings”. The guidelines are based on a framework for adopting adaptive thermal comfort principles in design and operation of buildings. The guidelines aim to bridge the gap between adaptive thermal comfort theory and real-world building design and operation.

1. Introduction and Overcoming challenges and barriers in applying the adaptive principles in building design and operation (Runa T. Hellwig, Aalborg University, Denmark)

2. How to set the heating temperature in winter in North China? (Zhaojun Wang, Harbin Institute of Technology, China)

3. Behavioural adaptation under warm conditions (Marcel Schweiker, RWTH Aachen University, Germany)

4. Designing occupant behaviour opportunities intentionally: Process, stakeholders, roles (Runa T. Hellwig, Aalborg University, Denmark)


All those who have signed up for Indoor Air can access the pre-recorded video from now until end of April 2021 via the Indoor Air homepage
