Energy Resources and Energy Efficiency
The challenge of introducing a sustainable lifestyle combining environmental protection and social and economic improvement is directly connected with a better exploitation of energy resources. In strict contact with the local reality of the mountain territory of South Tyrol, the two classical paradigms of energy efficiency in energy production, distribution and utilization and of replacement of traditional fuels with renewable energy sources are here considered. Accordingly, research activities cover, on the side of energy production, the renewable energy resources management and the energy production technology, and, on the side of energy efficiency, the energy efficiency in buildings and the energy efficiency in the production systems.
