Research Headlines - Basarsi sull'esperienza
11 Aug 2020 at 5:00pm
Sono molti i fattori che incidono sulle prestazioni energetiche di un edificio e una simulazione non può tenerne conto. Così, un progetto finanziato dall’UE ha messo insieme i dati basati sull’esperienza di chi opera nel settore edile e dell’energia, su cosa ha o non ha funzionato. Il risultato è Enbuibench: una piattaforma su cui confrontare il consumo energetico tra edifici simili.
