Windows in the Buildings of Tomorrow; Energy Losers or Energy Gainers?
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
One of the most effective actions for reduction of energy loss through the building envelope is to optimize the thermal performance, area and localization of the transparent components in the façade in order to obtain ...
Kunnskapsstatus – Fuktbufring i materialer og påvirkning på energibehov
(ZEB Project report;22-2015, Research report, 2015)
Robustness Classification of Materials, Assemblies and Buildings
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
Reliable methods are needed for classifying the robustness of buildings and building materials for many reasons, including ensuring that constructions can withstand the climate conditions resulting from global warming, ...
Impact of opaque building envelope configuration on the heating and cooling energy need of a single family house in cold climates
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
The building envelope plays a crucial role in reducing operational energy demand. The two main properties of the building envelope to look at in this perspective are thermal transmittance (U, W/m2K1) and thermal inertia, ...
Cooling of PV panels by natural convection
(ZEB Project report;6-2012, Research report, 2012)
Improving Thermal Insulation of Timber Frame Walls by Retrofitting with Vacuum Insulation Panels – Experimental and Theoretical Investigations
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
Many of the Norwegian buildings from the 1960s–1980s with timber frame walls are ready for retrofitting. Retrofitting of these buildings with vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) may be performed without significant changes to ...
Moisture in Multi-Layer Windows
(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
There is an increasing interest in development of coupled multi-layer window structures. This is to optimize thermal properties and to develop systems with a better climate protected solar shading system. The risk of ...
