Plant design and automation
The plant design must be an advanced but moderate "integration", which provides for that little bit of energy that the building envelope is not able to accumulate and passively store. Under a design actually "integrated", the technological plant systems must harmoniously interact with the architectural union, according to the morphology of the building and site.
To plant systems is required not only to integrate passive building technologies, but also to act as "active sensors" (think, for example, thermal solar and photovoltaic). In conclusion, they will be the shrewd "managers" of the energy resources of a building, and their good conception, design, execution will contribute decisively to the hygro-climatic benefit even clearly economic, that the end users will appreciate.
