Regional Economic Development, Urban Consumption and Energy Reduction
Track: Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
Authors: Antonino Barbalace
Goal of the research is to provide viable possibilities to mitigate the energy consumption in the construction sector and develop new methods integrating physical and energy analyses with the socioeconomic impact assessment.
We have assessed different retrofitting scenarios of a variety of architectural typologies in different climates to demonstrate that sustainable materials can improve the energy performances and estimated the major socioeconomic impacts at different levels.
