In this scenario, buildings play a relevant role for the energy transition that European countries are facing. They are expected to shift from passive energy consumers to flexible energy prosumers able to produce and store energy, modify their thermal and electric demands and share data with other buildings connected in smart energy communities. We are already in this transition phase with several pilot projects ongoing.

Nel realizzare case che consumano meno, o che addirittura producono più energia di quanta ne consumano, sono diverse le variabili da tenere in conto. Per dirne alcune: bisogna capire le tecnologie a disposizione sul mercato, il loro costo e la loro accessibilità, l’ambiente e il clima.
