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 requirement of the building. In fact, our company develops hardware and software technologies which allow you to automatically adapt the regulation of thermal systems according to the external climatic conditions. In this way it is possible to optimize energy consumption while maintaining the desired comfort level.
TERMOGEA is committed to developing the most advanced technologies for remote control and automation of heating systems. Termogea technologies for energy saving and efficiency are in line 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 E.P.B.D. 2010/31 / EU directive and its 2018/844 update aim to encourage the use of B.A.C.S. systems (Building Automation and Control Systems).
- E.P.B.D. 2010/31 / EU, Article 8, clause 1.
Member States shall, for the purpose of optimising the energy use of technical building systems, set system requirements in respect of the overall energy performance, the proper installation, and the appropriate dimensioning, adjustment and control of the technical building systems which are installed in existing buildings […].
- E.P.B.D. 2010/31 / EU, Article 8, clause 2.
Member States shall encourage the introduction of intelligent metering systems whenever a building is constructed or undergoes major renovation […]. Member States may furthermore encourage, where appropriate, the installation of active control systems such as automation, control and monitoring systems that aim to save energy.
BUILDING AUTOMATION CONTROL SYSTEMS
WHAT IS CURRENTLY PROVIDED IN ITALY BY LAW 90 RELATING TO B.A.C.S.
The reference in the field of energy efficiency in Italy is currently Law 90/2013. This law, with its implementing decree D.M. 26-06-2015 (Minimum Requirements Decree), requires a minimum level of automation for new non-residential buildings. It consists in activating automation procedures relating to the control, regulation and management of building technologies as well as thermal systems. The used automation systems must at least correspond to class B of EN 15232.
As to energy redevelopment on existing non-residential buildings, the law requires the installation of an automatic management system of thermal systems in line with class B of EN 15232.
