Buildings’ Environment and Energy Systems (BEES)

Referent: Mazzarella Livio

The group’s research activity aims at supplying basic knowledge, measurement and operating tools for building envelope components, building service systems and indoor microclimate analysis and control, together with rational use of energy and comfort achievement. Such research topic focus on retrofit measures, bio-climatic design, innovative envelope technologies, intelligent building automation systems, energy efficient end-use apparatus, clever integration of natural and artificial light. Thermal driven cooling technologies, tri-generation systems, emerging HVAC&R technologies based on solar energy use and application of active solar systems to buildings energy needs. Acoustics is part of the research topic focused on human comfort and health, through the building, environmental and room acoustic engineering; while cultural heritage preservation techniques focus to characterize and analyze deterioration phenomena on ancient materials, due to microclimate parameters variations.
