Strategie Sostenibili per il Retrofit Energetico del Patrimonio Edilizio Esistente: BIPV e mitigazione del microclima urbano per l’incremento del comfort indoor e outdoor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


[automatically translated] The "sustainability" of the retrofit can be pursued through the use of alternative energy sources and building integration of plant elements that use such energy sources. With this in mind, a few years ago is spreading also in Italy the BIPV (literally: Building Integrated Photovoltaic - architecturally integrated photovoltaic systems) that represents the new "frontier" of the photovoltaic market, thought no longer "added" but "integrated" in buildings. In this sense are spreading also meant solutions and products for energy retrofit of the buildings (and not only "suitable" for the new building of buildings) capable of guaranteeing the requirements related to the water tightness and air, the 'thermal and acoustic insulation, the light transmission as well as the production of energy from one of the most polluting energy sources not spread at the global level and considerable almost inexhaustible what is the sun. Although this address appears still not "practiced" by most, that still linger in the preparation of the redevelopment of existing buildings by providing -for fotovoltaico- the simple positioning on the roof, in the most favorable orientation with respect to energy production and regardless of the architectural nature and "aesthetic issues" that the installation of the plant may result, even the V Energy Bill legislation protects and enhances the retrofits that involve the use of BIPV products and solutions.
