The importance and need for energy efficiency in buildings is well understood. Also, the contribution of energy required for HVAC (particularly for cooling in Indian context) in buildings is known to be the most significant. One of the most energy efficient way of providing cooling in building with the use of radiant cooling systems. Despite of being energy efficient and economical; the use of radiant cooling has been limited in India. However, now there are few good examples of such systems and there exists some experience in designing and operating. Lack of detailed understanding of system, lack of design and simulation capabilities, limited knowledge on integration with the building and rest of the HVAC system, are some of the major barriers in scaling up of radiant...Read more

Design and Simulation of Radiant Cooling Systems
To address these barriers, the Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP) in collaboration with IBPSA 2015, is organizing a training on “Design and Simulation of Radiant Cooling Systems". The aim of the training programme is to help Indian professionals involved in designing of HVAC systems and working on energy simulation to enhance their knowledge on radiant cooling system and be in a better position to design and implement radiant cooling systems in building projects they are involved in.
