IEA EBC Annex 80 - Resilient Cooling

An inexorable increase in energy consumption for the cooling of buildings, and the increase in overheating of buildings is caused by urbanisation and densification, climate change, elevated comfort expectations, and inappropriate architectural design practices.

Meeting this challenge requires further development and application of low energy and low carbon cooling solutions on a large scale. In order to expedite the transition of our new-build and existing building stock to nearly zero energy building (nZEB) and nearly zero carbon building (nZCB) status we have to take immediate action.

To address these challenges the EBC Executive Committee launched the Annex 80 one-year preparation phase in June 2018.



The Annex is open to all interested scientific and industrial researchers as well as governmental stake holders of EBC participating countries. (You can find a list of participating countries here.)
