Annual Report 2016
"No less than four new EBC research projects have been approved in 2016: 'Building energy performance Assessment Based on In-situ Measurements', 'Assessing Life Cycle Related Environmental Impacts Caused by Buildings', 'Towards Net Zero Energy Public Communities', and 'Cost-effective Building Renovation at District Level Combining Energy Efficiency and Renewables'. On top of this, we have also established a new Working Group, 'HVAC Energy Calculation Methodologies for Non-residential Buildings'."
"And completing their work schedules in 2016, a range of highly relevant and application-ready results have been published as outcomes from our projects: 'Evaluation of Embodied Energy and Carbon Dioxide Equivalent Emissions for Building Construction', 'Reliable Building Energy Performance Characterisation Based on Full Scale Dynamic Measurement', 'High Temperature Cooling and Low Temperature Heating in Buildings'."
"While the number of EBC research projects is growing, the number of our participating countries is increasing in parallel. In the past year, the Government of Singapore has formally joined our Programme."
