Concept of an hydrothermal energy heat pump system for energetic requalification of historical buildings



Historic buildings are still excluded from the scope of regulatory framework concerning energy efficiency and environmental sustainability since European Directive 2002/91/EC and its following recast. Anyway, it is possible to provide renewable energy source systems in valuable historic buildings according to existing plants characters and possibly controlling complex safety mandatory framework requirements. A case study is presented in order to underline a development of sea hydrothermal energy use in high-value historic building heritage.
