Lecture: How to Prevent Overheating in Dwellings
Lecture by Pieter Nuiten, Senior Advisor, W/E Adviseurs
Hosted by the Urban Energy Institute
Date: Wednesday 10 February
Time: 4-5pm CET
Moderator: Kornelis Blok
Changing climate and changing building standards will lead to excessive overheating in new dwellings. The Dutch building code (Bouwbesluit) now has explicit requirements to prevent this from happening. Pieter Nuiten will explain the motivations for this requirement, the implementation in the building code, and will give practical examples and solutions how to adapt the design of new dwellings.
