Researchers in Europe are developing a new kind of prefabricated energy efficient building façades, equipped with special insulation and solar panels.   These solutions are built far from the construction site, in an industrial environment, and can therefore be installed quickly and painlessly for homeowners or tenants

The general objective of EduFootprint Project is to better manage, plan and monitor the energy consumption in public buildings in the Mediterranean area.   Specifically, EduFootprint aims to reach this aim working focused in public school buildings with an innovative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach, considering not just direct energy impacts of buildings (consumption), but also indirect ones (public procurement or general human awareness and behaviour).

Statistically, 40 percent of energy consumption and 36 percent of emissions come from buildings.   Although this has prompted energy efficiency to become one of the EU’s top priorities and led the EU to acknowledge that buildings are key to achieving its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95 percent by 2050, it is not always easy to encourage deep renovation.

Dal 2021, tutti gli edifici nuovi o soggetti a una ristrutturazione importante di primo livello dovranno essere a fabbisogno di energia quasi zero (nZEB).   Negli stessi casi gli edifici pubblici daranno l’esempio, rispondendo ai requisiti nZEB già dal 2019. Alcune regioni e province autonome hanno già anticipato tali scadenze.

SSPCR 2019 aims to answer the question on how can we maximize the impact of academic research, the scaling-up and replicability opportunities of pilot projects, and the added value of local bottom-up initiatives, in relation to complex challenges posed by the smart city/region approach?   Therefore, building projects that wish to put their work in a larger (urban or regional scale) will find in this conference the right audience.

As building envelopes and mechanical and electrical equipment become more efficient, the impact of occupants on building energy increases.   Meanwhile trends in teleworking, co-working, and home-sharing mean vastly different occupancy than the standard occupancy schedules.   Finally, global expectations for comfort are increasing, while a variety of new technologies may or may not succeed in meeting this demand.
