Thanks to the efforts of its members, AiCARR creates and promotes culture in the field of technological systems for production, distribution and use of thermal energy in both residential and industrial buildings.

With a view to achieving energy efficiency and environmental comfort, AiCARR addresses the issues of energy saving, the use of renewable energy sources and control over the management of plants and systems.


50° International Congress


Matera, 10th-11th May 2017




As request by the European Directive 31/2010, important measures are needed to increase the number of buildings which not only fulfill current minimum energy performance requirements, but are also more energy efficient, thereby reducing both energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. For this purpose European countries have been requested to draw up national plans for increasing the number of nearly zero-energy buildings and regularly report such plans to the Commission.

The achievement of nZEB targets requires a wide range of technologies, systems and solutions with different degrees of complexity and sophistication, depending on the location and environment conditions, but also on local legislation and market situation. In particular, for mediterranean climate conditions, how can be summarized the nZEB design challenge? A careful building planning permits to obtain indoor comfort conditions both in winter and summer with very low energy consumptions, but an important role is played by heating and air-conditioning installations, by the application of energy from renewable sources, by the passive heating and cooling elements, shading, by the indoor air-quality with adequate natural light and satisfactory indoor noise level.
