Energy technology is vital for a dynamic society, but due to global warming, it is now required to change existing patterns in production and use. Half of the consumed energy is used for the needs of buildings. Thus, we can focus on actions to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide CO2, by starting with energy efficiency.
How can we construct green buildings for the future? - Reduce the amount of resources consumed by buildings
- Reduce the amount of pollution emitted from the buildings
In Europe, the largest share of energy in buildings is heating. Insulation and thermal design can dramatically reduce heat loss and help stop global warming. Heating energy demand in existing buildings can be reduced by 30-50% through retrofit, compared to the current average. In new buildings it can be reduced by 90-95%, using widely available technology at competitive costs.
EnvironmentGreen buildings often include measures to reduce energy use. To increase the efficiency of the building we can use in high efficiency windows and insulation in walls, ceilings and floors. The design of passive solar systems is also another strategy. Designers also orient windows, walls, terraces and tents where appropriate to provide shade during the summer and maximize solar gain in winter. Furthermore, effective window placement (daylight) may offer more natural light and reduce the need for electric lighting during the day. The solar heating system further reduces the required energy loads.
High performance green buildings have three main features: high efficiency, low environmental impact, ensuring the health of residents and comfort. These are the principles for new and existing buildings.
One simple measure is appropriate insulation systems. We use primary materials and energy with the responsibility to reduce emissions during production. Thus, we meet all industry standards, by providing information on the proper use of all our products to guarantee the highest performance.
The benefits of insulation tubes (such as ISOPIPE), despite the reduced costs, are many such as:
- Saves energy by reducing losses
- Controls surface's temperature for personal protection and comfort
- Facilitates the process of temperature control
- Prevents moisture on cold surfaces
- Prevents or reduces the possibility of damage of equipment and machinery from exposure to fire or erosion.
- Controls the level of noise
- Low thermal conductivity, exceeding the requirements of K.EN.A.K. to effectively save energy and reduce emissions of CO2 (carbon dioxide).
- Zero ozone depletion (ODP): ISOPIPE is manufactured without CFC, HCFC or HFC in accordance with the requirements for green buildings!
- Zero cost to the global warming due to greenhouse effect (GWP).
