So far the VC database contains 91 buildings, located in Denmark, Ireland and Austria. Further contributions from other countries are expected.
The building-datasheets offer illustrative descriptions of buildings of different usages, sizes and locations, using VC as a mean of indoor comfort improvement.
The building-spreadsheet highlights distributions of technologies and strategies, such as the following. (Numbers in % refer to the sample of the database’s 91 buildings.)
It may be concluded that Ventilative Cooling is applied in temporary European and international Low Energy buildings. Still it’s not really widespread. Obstacles are challenges as regards noise, dust, weather and burglary, proving the research efforts of the Annex being necessary. The VC database forms a worthwhile basis for both dissemination and further research targets.
