Economic Feasibility of Measures for Energy Efficiency

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


In this chapter the economic impact of some measures for energy efficiency, both using automation of technical infrastructures (according to EN 15232) as well as implementing passive measures concerning the use of building materials and techniques (according to EN 15271), is studied. The chapter is organized as follows. First, a technical-economical study on the evaluation of the impact on residential buildings of Building Automation Control, BAC, and Technical Building Management, TBM, systems is presented. Then the same assessment of some passive measures that can be employed is carried out using the Passive House Standard for Mediterranean warm climates is shown. Numerical elaborations have been carried out for a sample house located in Palermo, Sicily (Southern Italy). The building is located in the EuroMediterranean area and thus all measures are referred to warm climates.
