2.6.2 Installation of photovoltaic panels

2.6.2 Installation of photovoltaic panels Description Photovoltaic panels (PV) convert solar radiation into electric current. To take advantage of the collected energy, due to its difficult storage, and the high losses that imply, these collection systems are connected to the electric grid, selling electricity in hours of production, and buying it in [...]

2.6.1 Installation of solar thermal panels

2.6.1 Installation of solar thermal panels Description A solar thermal energy system is a technology that harnesses solar radiation to produce thermal energy, which can be used later on as DHW, heating or for swimming pool heating, among others. Additionally, by means of a trigeneration system, it can be even used for [...]

2.1.32 Substitution of transparent for opaque insulated envelope

2.1.32 Substitution of transparent for opaque insulated envelope Description The measure consists in replacing windows with opaque insulated panels to reduce energy losses and air infiltrations through transparent enclosures. The opaque panels provide shading to the building, reducing solar radiation and avoiding overheating in hot climates. Benefits [...]

2.1.26 Improve insulation in thermal bridge areas

2.1.26 Improve insulation in thermal bridge areas Description The thermal bridge is a localised area of the building envelope where the heat-flow is different (usually higher) in comparison with adjacent areas. Usually thermal bridges are located at the end of the windows frame, in the pillars meetings, in the meetings between pillars [...]

2.1.22 Convert balconies into galleries

2.1.22 Convert balconies into galleries Description The system consists in the installation of glazing to close balconies and create, in winter, a closed buffer space which accumulate heat and avoid the contact of external wall surface with cold air. It will work as a greenhouse, so in summer it has to be [...]

2.1.18 Installation of efficient windows (triple glazing with aluminium frames with thermal break)

2.1.18 Installation of efficient windows (triple glazing with aluminium frames with thermal break) Description This measure consists in the replacement of inefficient windows (e.g. aluminium frame without thermal brake and single glazing) for an efficient one with triple glazing and aluminium frames with thermal brake. A typical transmittance of this type of [...]
