IEA-EBC Annex 65 Project

IEA-EBC Annex 65: Long-Term Performance of Super-Insulating Materials in Building Components & Systems was a research project set up to investigate the 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:
