historic buildings

On the one hand, historic buildings stand for a considerable part of societal energy use and the pressure to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions is increasing. On the other hand, the historic building stock is an important cultural and material resource that we need to manage carefully for the benefit of present and future generations. Thus, we must find ways to balance the needs of building conservation and energy conservation.

Nowadays resources are running out quickly, it’s necessary to consider how the construction industry influences the environment using different materials and sources during all the building’s life cycle. For this reason, in every transformation phases it’s necessary to consider concepts as sustainability and green buildings. These are diffused from hundreds kind of green assessment tools, developed to measure sustainability goals in building sector and to compare the project with possible best practices or other green buildings.

Osnovni namen smernic je prikaz možnih naborov ukrepov za energetsko prenovo, ki so v skladu z zahtevami varstva dediščinskih lastnosti stavbe in ne posegajo bistveno v njeno strukturo in zunanjo podobo. Obsegajo ukrepe za izboljšanje stavbnega ovoja, energetskih sistemov oziroma instalacij, ukrepe za povečanje rabe obnovljivih virov energije in organizacijske ukrepe. Predstavljeni so nujni postopki za uspešno načrtovanje energetske prenove ter opozorila in priporočila za izvajanje ukrepov.
