Il Programma KlimaFactory di CasaClima è un’iniziativa di supporto per le aziende che vogliono migliorare le proprie performance energetiche e mantenere il proprio standard di qualità, ma con un impiego minore di energia.
Nel contesto di KlimaFactory vengono evidenziati i potenziali di risparmio energetico in funzione di benchmark di riferimento e indicate misure di efficientamento a seconda della tipologia di utilizzo dell’edificio.

The building was built in 2018 and it hosts 1300 students in food and body-care professions. The floors develop a useful surface around 9,000 m² distributed in two wings flanking a central courtyard:
On the street side, the reception wing, of general and scientific education: The construction integrates the soft natural environmental technologies of the site with the will to be applied pedagogical support and lived of the sobriety for the energy transition.

The Swiss BiPV Competence Centre was created in 2005 within the Institute for Applied Sustainability to the Built Environment (ISAAC).
It aims to combine the competences of the department of Architecture of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) with those of ISAAC offering a new and appropriate approach to photovoltaics for architects.

This database tool aims to boost the BIPV penetration in the building sector, overcoming existing barriers as well as encouraging designers with inspiring examples of BIPV buildings and a quick glance at the current BIPV market.
As part of this initiative, a database collecting products is worked in parallel. These products are categorised in (a) modules, (b) mounting systems and (c) energy systems and can then be filtered by colour, size, transparency, technology type, storage, power conversion, etc.

This tool is a simulation methodology for assessing the thermal performance of Complex Fenestration Systems (CFS). In this simulation approach, solar radiation is treated with a detailed optical model based on ray tracing and using the software Radiance. The resulting absorbed fraction of solar radiation is included in a CFD simulation, performed with COMSOL Multiphysics, capable of modelling both heat transfer and fluid flow.
