LATEST, NEW & UPDATED STANDARDS IN THE FIELD OF ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING Written and compiled by Consultant David Richards Hon.FSEE, CEng, CEnv
A fair number of updated standards relate to the energy performance of buildings. Asmany havemultiple parts and numerous sub-parts, only the overarching standards have been listed. One of these standards has the potential to have broader application and is specifically considered below.
BS EN ISO 52010-1 Energy performance of buildings. External climatic conditions. Conversion of climatic data for energy calculations.
This standard specifies a calculation procedure for the conversion of climatic data for energy calculations. The main element of the standard is the calculation of solar irradiance on a surface with arbitrary orientation and tilt.

A simplemethod for conversion of solar irradiance to illuminance is also provided. The solar irradiance and illuminance on an arbitrary surface are applicable as input for thermal energy and daylighting calculations, for building elements (such as roofs, facades and windows) and for components of technical building systems (such as thermal solar collectors, PV panels).

calibrated by primarymethods, themethods described can be applied between other levels in the calibration hierarchy. It can also be used under field conditions,where the uncertainty ofmeasurementmay be relatively large.
BS ISO 19923 Space environment (natural and artificial). Plasma environments for generation of worst case electrical potential differences for spacecraft.
Although relating to a relatively specialized electro- magnetic environment, this standard specifies space plasma environments that lead to the generation of the worst-case surface potential differences for spacecraft. It also specifies how to estimate worst-case potential differences by using the simulation codes provided.
