Cool*Buildings - Cooling Strategies in Residential Buildings - Technology Comparison


The project examines the current state and main technologies for cooling of buildings and aims to provide a basis for further development in this field. The project contributes to foresight and awareness raising in the building sector and prepares companies as well as the public sector for the upcoming changes in the field of cooling. Important objectives of the project: - Survey of different cooling technologies - Investigation and comparison of technologies - Survey of value chains - Identification of best practice solutions - Development of a decision matrix to support decision-making for cooling strategies in residential buildings among planners, building owners, flat owners and users, political stakeholders for the implementation of appropriate framework conditions and subsidies, as well as members of technical committees for implementation in standards and guidelines The results are used by IEA Annex 80 to support and connect international research activities in the field of resilient cooling of buildings.
