Climate adaptation, building summer comfort : feed-back from voluntary and mandatory schemes implementation and perspectives in a RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 context
November 10 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EET
09:00 – 10:00 (EET)
Buildings have to provide comfort under warmer outdoor weather conditions, primarily by up-to-date passive techniques and bioclimatic architecture and efficient active systems for the residual energy needs. Resilient new buildings and renovations should anticipate in their design, construction and operation the average raise in temperatures and provide thermal safety against longer and stronger heatwaves. What are the current approaches and solutions to those needed services in such locations as the mediterraneans and africans regions under warmer outdoor weather conditions and heatwaves as of the RCP 4.5 and 8.5 scenarios ?. Are future weather files ready and available as input for the design ? How can these approaches support energy sufficiency, efficiency, flexibility to integrate variable RES, coupled with affordability objectives ? This session provides different point a view on these challenges, with a panel of 4 speakers and one moderator.
