QUALICHeCK International Workshop on summer comfort technologies in buildings, 9-10 March 2016, Athens, Greece

QUALICHeCK Workshop Athens March 2016

Voluntary and regulatory frameworks to improve quality and compliance of solar control, cool roofs and ventilative cooling

The 2nd QUALICHeCK Workshop took place in Athens, Greece, on 9-10 March 2016, and focused on sustainable summer comfort technologies. Within the context of compliance and quality, topics to covered included solar control, developments in cooling technologies and potential for advanced cooling, status on ventilative cooling, cool roofs and more. In addition, summer comfort was examined from the perspectives of energy, climate change and energy poverty.
