Welcome to the Innovative displacement ventilation home page!

Project Objectives

This project was setup under the DETRs Partners In Innovation scheme to address the following objectives:

* Develop improved displacement ventilation technology to meet higher cooling loads than possible with existing products.

* Actively promote improved displacement ventilation technology to ensure its rapid uptake by the construction industry.

* Increase the use of displacement ventilation to improve the sustainability of buildings.

* Provide building users with information on the benefits of displacement ventilation systems, and in particular improved diffuser design.
