Home Page

This is a network of researchers, consultants, designers and manufacturers concerned with building-related energy issues and the requirements for human thermal comfort. The aim of the network is to define and promote the research effort needed to understand and enhance the thermal comfort of building occupants whilst also minimising the energy use of buildings, in particular those without year-round mechanical heating and cooling.

Outputs from members of the network include research to underpin new norms and standards for indoor climate and design guidance for building controls. The network is a centre for information in this field of research and advice on the implications of the work for the training of building professionals. Membership currently stands at more than 550, with representation from 33 countries.
