Dynamic Energy Systems Modelling Heat Pumps in Energy Efficient Buildings

Place: Sähkömiehentie 4 A, K4 building, lecture room 172, 1st floor
Time: 20.4. - 21.4.2015, from 9.00 to 16.00

To whom: All (bachelor-level students, master-level students, doctoral students, research-ers, staff) interested in modelling dynamic energy systems, heat pumps, energy-efficient buildings and ESCO’s

Lecturers: Professor Dr. Andra Blumberga, Riga Technical University, Latvia
Docent Dr. Dzintars Jaunzems, Riga Technical University, Latvia
Professor Dr. Andra Blumberga and Docent Dr. Dzintars Jaunzems from Riga Technical University, Latvia will give visiting lectures on a two-day seminar called “Dynamic Energy Systems Modelling and Heat Pumps in Energy Efficient Buildings”. Dr. Blumberga’s lectures are related to dynamic en-ergy systems modelling and Dr. Jaunzems on role of heat pumps in energy efficient buildings and also on the possibility to use Energy Service Companies (ESCO) in energy-related renovation of multi-family buildings.
