The energetic characterization of solar-control environments



Despite the increasingly pressing regulations in the energy sector (EPBD recast, law 90/2013 and the consequent decree 162 of 2015), which push towards policies and financial measures to promote buildings with almost zero energy, the quality of the internal environment remains one of the critical parameters on which to pay more attention in view of a consistent evaluation of the Nzeb building. The authors show, in the present paper, the results related to the energetic characterization of two test rooms, identical for surface and opaque envelope, but with different typologies of windows on the South-East and South-West wall.
