Nowadays, energy equalization is one of the many issues concerningthe energy policies on the urban scale and in the perspective of reducing theUrban Heat Island effects (UHI-e). The different economic-financial profiles ofthe interventions implemented in the buildings having a wide range of climaticlocations, typological arrangements, architectural-historical constraints, need tobe coordinated within unitary local energy-environmental policies inspired byeconomic-financial as well as environmental issues. The renovation of existinghotels to achieve a nearly Zero-Energy performance is one of the goals of the2050 EU’s energy policy. This paper presents the nZEB retrofit case of anexisting historic hotel and proposes a step by step approach to nZEB performancewith a perspective on the costs, in order to identify the most effectiveenergy solutions. Such approach allows highlighting useful insights regardingenergy and economic-financial strategies for achieving nZEB standards.
