Stichting Instituut voor Studie en Stimulering van Onderzoek op het gebied van gebouwinstallaties
The ISSO Foundation is a small non-profit organisation. Nine employees are professional engineers with at least 10 years of experience in the field of knowledge transfer, production of technical guidelines, publications etc. related to Building Services, Energy and Indoor environment. In order of the Dutch Government ISSO made in collaboration with several other experts the technical procedures and tools for the national Energy Performance Certificate (EPBD) and tailored energy-advice. ISSO is an acknowledged leader in this process area. The organisation develops the technical procedure for controlling the quality of Energy Performance on new buildings. ISSO is the initiator of controlling the Energy Performance of products /systems that are used in buildings to get a better Energy Performance for that building. ISSO is the Dutch representative for developing the European EPBD-standards. Employees from ISSO are member of WG 371 Program committee (chairman), CEN TC 228 Heating systems in buildings and CEN TC 156 Ventilation systems in buildings.
