Training objectives

The Course will:

  • Provide the necessary skills for assessing of the environmental parameters influencing indoor well-being;
  • Offer professional training on the analysis of energy balance terms with the aim of identifying cost-effective opportunities for reducing energy consumption;
  • Gain a better understanding of the characteristics of insulating materials, natural and otherwise;
  • Illustrate the techniques of energy efficiency and environmental renewal of building units through in-depth thematic studies;
  • Equip candidates with the tools for managing the redevelopment work up to the implementation phase.

Didactic Plan

The course addresses the following themes:

  • The basic principles for obtaining increased indoor comfort: thermo-hygrometric comfort; environmental hygiene and indoor air exchange; principles of acoustics; design solutions; overview of controlled mechanical ventilation systems; the influence of light and colour in indoor environments;
  • The containment of energy consumption: the condition of the building heritage; renewable sources of supply; legislation; individual heat accounting and applicable tax benefits;
  • Design principles in low energy renowal: thermal insulation strategies; review of insulating materials; internal thermal insulation by means of natural and hygroscopic materials; mitigation of thermal bridges; passive strategies for thermal protection in summer;
  • Changes to the thermal envelope: techniques for installing an insulation system; technical characteristics of opaque construction elements; performance requirements for windows and doors; solar screens; overview of non-invasive analytical tests;
  • Electrical systems and home automation systems: overview of thermal and electrical energy control systems (from the network, from a renewable source and from accumulation) with the aim of implementing the most efficient energy profile for the desired level of comfort;
  • Thermal plants: overview of heat emission systems and air conditioning system.
