ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF BUILDINGS

AUTOMATION AND REMOTE CONTROL OF THERMAL SYSTEMS

Increasing energy efficiency in the end uses of energy is a primary interest objective now shared by all, particularly in the context of European and national energy policy.
The savings that can be obtained from energy efficiency, seen as a “virtual” energy resource, should be understood as one of the policy tools to be used to cope in the short and medium term with the structural difficulties of the community energy system and of our country.

THE SOFTWARE FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY

TERMOGEA acts actively on the energy needs of the building. In fact, our company develops hardware and software technologies that allow you to automatically adapt the regulation of heating systems according to the external climatic conditions. In this way it is possible to optimize energy consumption while maintaining the desired level of comfort.
TERMOGEA is committed to developing the most advanced technologies for remote control and automation of heating systems. Termogea technologies for energy saving and efficiency comply with B.A.C.S. (Building Automation and Control System).

ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF BUILDINGS

WHAT THE EUROPEAN LEGISLATION ESTABLISHES ON E.P.B.D.

The EPBD 2010/31 / EU directive and its 2018/844 update aim to encourage the use of BACS systems (Building Automation and Control Systems).

  • EPBD 2010/31 / EU, Article 8, paragraph 1.
    In order to optimize the energy consumption of technical building systems, Member States shall establish installation requirements relating to the overall energy performance, correct installation and the appropriate size, regulation and control of technical building systems installed in existing buildings […].
  • EPBD 2010/31 / EU, Article 8, paragraph 2.
    Member States promote the introduction of intelligent metering systems when a building is under construction or undergoing a major renovation […]. Member States may also promote, where appropriate, the installation of active control systems such as automation, control and monitoring systems aimed at energy saving.

BUILDING AUTOMATION CONTROL SYSTEMS

WHAT IS CURRENTLY PROVIDED IN ITALY BY LAW 90 RELATING TO B.A.C.S.

Currently in Italy the reference in the field of energy efficiency is Law 90/2013. This law, with its implementing decree D.M. 26-06-2015 (Minimum Requirements Decree), imposes a minimum level of automation for new buildings for non-residential use. It involves activating automation procedures relating to the control, regulation and management of building technologies as well as heating systems. The automation systems used must at least correspond to class B of EN 15232.
With regard to energy redevelopment on existing non-residential buildings, also in this case the law requires the installation of an automatic management system of the plants compliant with class B of EN 15232.
