Assessing thermal performances of buildings

This work is carried out in collaboration with ACTIS – EMM (European Multifoil Manufacturer). It breaks with the state of the art in deriving thermal performances from in situ testing thanks to a breakthrough technology. This work has lead to the participation in the European CEN/TC89/WG13 standardization committee and in the international ISO/TC163/SC1/WG16-ISO9869-1 standardization committee.

On this example, the difference between internal and external temperatures is simulated from the power consumption and some meteorological information.


One can observe a good agreement between the measured data and simulated temperature difference.

This is the basis of the Adagos patent (WO2014147148A2) for thermal building assessement.
