Abstract

In the current economic, energy and environmental situation, ecological and energy transition, would be achievable and effective if programmed over time by means of the use of advanced clean technologies for dealing with global warming. Our study was based on a systemic approach that requires taking into account the cultural, social, historical, environmental and energy context in any change or adaptation process of the building plant system analysed. It was necessary to work out compromise solutions between architectural and landscape preservation, with the current mandatory regulations on ventilation and air quality in schools. The results showed a lower energy and environmental impact for those retrofitting solutions designed for a gradual switch off to energy transition in accordance with the energy consumption reduction, maximum possible integration of renewables, decarbonisation, reversibility and ease management of plant systems. Findings highlighted that the suggested retrofitting and refurbishment energy green/sustainable plant solutions can be a useful example and tool for designing and programming ecological and energy transition over time. This especially concerns public administration and school building managers, but also listed historic school buildings.
