Exploring occupant behaviour potentialities for historic buildings' energy retrofit

Spigliantini, Giorgia

Abstract (englisch):
In recent years, the topic of historic buildings’ energy retrofit has been investigated increasingly by the energy research sector, especially in the European area. This phenomenon is related to a number of reasons, among which the increasing awareness of the role that this category of buildings have to reach the European carbon emissions’ reduction targets by 2050. In fact, more than 14% of the European building stock dates from before 1920, but this percentage rises to 50% in several urban centres. Despite the increasing interest on the topic, several studies on historic buildings’ energy retrofit seems not aware of cultural heritage protection and conservation legislations and practices. For this reason, nowadays, the objectives of these two sectors seems to be unbalanced. Since the tradition of heritage conservation and protection are rooted in the society’s cultural background, there is the necessity of proposing a change of perspective about the role of the energy sector in the restoration field. Primarily, energy retrofit should be addressed at increasing the liveability and economic sustainability of historic buildings, having their social profitability as a central scope. ... mehr
