The Energy channel brings together all actions aimed at energy containment for new infrastructure developments and the retrofitting of existing buildings. This channel includes measures linked to the automation and remote control of buildings to monitor their use and energy consumption.

Small footprint

With a view to reducing greenhouse gases, the strategy is to identify pollutants produced by transport and mobility. The aim behind the project is therefore to calculate the University of Bologna’s environmental footprint and to subsequently plan the activities needed to reduce it.


The aim of the project is to maximise energy saving in buildings, by integrating the management of all a building’s systems into a single platform, controlling energy flows and environmental parameters to reduce the use of technological systems.

Sun Addicted

The project involves the installation of photovoltaic systems for generating electricity from renewable sources, in order to meet the needs of heating/cooling systems and the energy needs of the University structures.


The basic concept of nZEB is to build or convert a building so that it achieves very high energy efficiency performance. The very low or negligible energy requirement should be predominantly covered by energy from renewable sources.
