Climamed 2017 Conference “Historical buildings retrofit in the Mediterranean area”

MAY 12th and 13th, 2017 – MATERA ITALY


Energy Retrofit is an extremely interesting challenge for engineers, architects, designers. If we focus our attention on historical buildings the challenge is formidable. On the Mediterranean basin, face many countries whose historical and cultural heritage is rich, countries where the challenge posed by the energy retrofit is stimulating and, to some extent, necessary.

The energy performance of buildings shall be defined on the basis of methodologies, which include, in addition to thermal characteristics, other factors that play an increasingly important role such as heating and air-conditioning installations, application of energy from renewable sources, passive heating and cooling elements, shading, indoor air-quality, adequate natural light and satisfactory indoor noise level.

Interventions in historical buildings must be carefully designed and defined both for the existence of static and/or historical constraints, both for use requirements, operational, maintenance and cost.

To provide answers to these challenges AiCARR, the Italian Association of Engineers in Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Refrigeration organizes jointly with AICVF (France), APIRAC (Portugal), ATECYR (Spain) and TTMD (Turkey) the 9th CLIMAMED Conference.
