In the PSO project 345-061, a novel system solution combining natural ventilation with diffuse ceiling inlet and thermally activated building systems (TABS) has been proposed for cooling and ventilation in Danish office buildings. Due to the application of diffuse ceiling inlet, cold outdoor air can be supplied into the room without any risk of draught even in the extreme winter. This means that natural ventilation is available even in winter and it is beneficial to reduce the energy consumption for buildings with cooling demand in cold seasons.
