In the past 40 years, since the first oil crisis in the seventies, energy and climate goals have been shaping many countries´ policy and legislative agendas. The building sector plays a crucial role in achieving these goals, considering the energy use attributed to buildings and its huge potential for improved energy performance. Whereas in the past most of the focus was on reducing the energy consumption, it is not clear that better performing buildings must ensure an acceptable Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), by providing higher Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and comfort levels for their occupants. Building ventilation entails both challenges and opportunities to achieve this goal. In 2019 the AIVC completes its 40th year of existence and the conference organisers thought that it would be good to pay a particular interest to the evolution during these 40 years.

The goal of this conference is to promote networking and present new techniques and workflows that practitioners make better decisions during the simulation and modeling process of an entire building life cycle.
The conference topics are divided in the categories Assessment & Certification, Design & Decision-Making Process, Cities & Infrastructure and Innovation & Implementation.
Global SBE series gets back to Helsinki to bring together the latest knowledge on sustainable buildings and their development trends. Conference themes will cover e.g. resource efficiency, circular economy, healthy spaces, net positivity, business concepts and innovations.
