IEA-EBC Annex 65 Project

IEA-EBC Annex 65 Project

IEA-EBC Annex 65: Long-Term Performance of Super-Insulating Materials in Building Components & Systems is a research project set up to investigate potential long term benefits and risks of newly developed super insulation materials and systems and to provide guidelines for their optimal design and use.

The project focused on two super insulating materials: Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) and advanced-porous materials, such as porous silica and aerogel. 

The work started in 2013 and was divided in four sub-tasks. A report was published for each sub-task and they are available for download by clicking the links below:
