MoBE

Climate change is one of the most significant challenges of our time. Due to the increasing energy consumption of a steadily growing world population, CO2 emissions and greenhouse effect are continuously increasing. The building sector provides great potential to reduce CO2 emissions, since 30% of the total energy consumption is to maintain thermal comfort in …

DRIVE-EN

DRIVE-EN project investigates how the refurbishment of former industrial buildings can act as a driver for territorial regeneration, by taking Olivetti factory as emblematic case-study.The final goal of the project is therefore to define several guidelines of intervention on industrial built heritage, which will possibly become a model for similar works.To get this result, two …

DAHEC: Data Analytics for Household Energy Consumption

DAHEC (Data Analytics for Household Energy Consumption) project aims to analyse and validate novel market opportunities through virtual pilot projects fed with synthetic but realistic disaggregated consumption data, overcoming the obstacles of real pilot projects. The synthetic data are outputs of a simulator of households’ energy consumption, ad-hoc implemented during the project. The innovative path …

Pil-Sim: Simulation of Scenarios for the Lombardia- Piemonte Macro-region

The project advances systemic macro-regional studies extended to Lombardia and Piemonte to address problems such as transportation and its congestion, the geographic disparity between work and residence, suburbs and sprawl, if the macro-region is likely to convey investment, create new jobs and improve the quality of life. This regional systemic approach has to consider present …

COMPITO: Monitoring Territorial Effects due to Commercial Polarities along the Milan-Turin Connection

Within the location of large-sized shopping areas, new typologies emerged in the last few years. In addition to their large dimension, they provide as their main feature a more comprehensive offer of selling areas, receptivity and leisure. These buildings have a wide influence area (in terms of attraction, catchment area, mobility impact) which always crosses …
