Standards Development

Since its creation, LabEEE has developed projects in the areas of energy efficiency and thermal comfort in buildings. Some of these projects culminated in the development of normative documents, and below you will find the main results of these researches.      


Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Permanent study group to prepare and update Technical Standards with ABNT/CB002.

NBR 15575: Thermal Performance

In 2018, LabEEE started to elaborate a proposal for the revision of the thermal performance analysis of NBR 15575 and, after a period of development and consolidation of the new method, in 2020 the proposed text was revised by ABNT Study Commission. The standard amendment was published in 2021 [...]

NBR 16401-2: Thermal Comfort

This project arose from a research at LabEEE where the main objective was to review the best practices in terms of standards of thermal comfort around the world. As the project evolved, a text was proposed and sent to the Brazilian Committee on Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Heating (ABNT/CB-055), edited and incorporated into part 2 of NBR 16401 [...]

EE normalization for Salvador/BA

The main objective of this project was to elaborate a standard text to be submitted to the Municipality of Salvador, establishing the energy efficiency standards to be adopted in new commercial buildings [...]
