Design and energy retrofitting

progettazione e riqualificazione sostenibile

Professors and researchers member of the research group have been working on several projects regarding the integration of innovative technologies for building energy saving, production and management of local energy, monitoring of innovative solutions for building retrofitting.

RESEARCH PROJECTS

Among the several research projects the MED European Project SCORE “Sustainable COnstruction in Rural and fragile areas for energy Efficiency”, supporting the implementation of sustainable energy policies in the construction sector in fragile coastal and rural areas with exceptional landscape values, exploiting eco-innovative potential, using traditional building elements combined with innovative green technologies, the European Cross-border Cooperation Programme, Italy-France “Maritime”, “Case Mediterranee”, the Research Project of National Interest (PRIN) 2008, “Dissemination of integrated technologies for the production and local management of energy in buildings”can be mentioned. The group developed a research for the Regional Territory Agency for Buildings (A.R.T.E.), Province of Savona, regarding a monitoring of passive solar systems integrated in an intervention of sustainable requalification.
