Integrated evaluation of radiative heating systems for residential buildings

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 19 May 2011brDimitrios, Anastaselos , Ifigeneia, Theodoridou , Agis M., Papadopoulos , Manfred, HeggerbrBased on the need to reduce CO2 emissions and minimize energy dependency, the EU Member States have set ambitious energy policies goals and have developed respective, specific regulations, in order to improve the energy performance of the building sector. Thus, specific measures regarding the buildings’ envelope, the use of efficient HVAC technologies and the integration of renewable energy systems are being constantly studied and promoted. The effective combination of these three main aspects will consequently result in maximum energy efficiency. Germany has played a key role in this development, with intensive work focusing in the improvement of the energy behaviour…br Highlights: ► Assessment of energy, economic and environmental performance of heating systems. ► Life Cycle Analysis in combination with the quality of thermal comfort. ► Effectiveness of interventions in already partially insulated buildings.
