What is an Energy Efficiency Study

This type of study can be carried out from different approaches depending on its purpose. It is used to check the energy performance of a building. This can be carried out in the project phase to carry out a new work or a competition, or in pre-existing buildings to carry out a rehabilitation.

The objective of the study can be, from obtaining a Zero Consumption Building (NZEB) to improving the solar capture of a skylight

What does it consist of

We offer different types of services depending on the client’s needs:

  • Climate study and passive strategies. We study the specific climate of the site and its parameters: humidity, sunshine, temperatures, annual soil temperatures. We value what kind of passive conditioning strategies can be more useful in the design of solutions.
  • Study of solar radiation and natural lighting. Let’s check the collecting facades, we value which orientations have more collecting power, how many Kwh/m2 we can capture in a certain opening.
  • Studies of energy demand and consumption. Once the building or rehabilitation has been designed based on the previous criteria (climate, passive strategy, solar collection criteria) we can dimension insulation, sealing and propose active systems to carry out annual energy operation models.

What will the customer get

The client obtains comprehensive advice and a detailed report that helps him to rigorously understand the energy repercussions that the design has on a finished building or the potential improvements of an energy rehabilitation.
