Conference Paper
Full-text available
International reports on energy consumption indicate that 50 % of it corresponds to buildings which are also responsible for 30 % of greenhouse gas emissions, the main cause of climate change. This paper presents the study of measures to improve the thermal systems of an existing residential building located in Burgos (Spain). The energy demands, e...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Approximately 50 % of energy consumption, as well as 30 % of greenhouse gas emissions, are originated from buildings. These emissions are mainly produced by burning fossil fuels. International organizations are promoting policies to reduce the environmental impact of buildings, both new and existing ones that are being rehabilitated.
Article
This article presents a methodological framework combining a life cycle cost assessment (LCC) and a life cycle assessment (LCA). The purpose is to assess the relevance of embodied energy and carbon emissions on the cost-effectiveness of building renovation solutions towards nZEB at the neighbourhood scale by comparing an operational energy approach...

La situación creada por la Pandemia de COVID 19 ha trascendido a todos los ámbitos de la sociedad, condicionando la vida de las personas en aspectos relacionados con las actividades familiares, laborales, culturales y educativas. En este sentido, en todos los niveles educativos se han adoptado medidas que han suspendido la “actividad escolar presen...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Buildings generate a large part of the environmental impact on our planet. They are responsible for 50 % of energy consumption [1] and 30 % of greenhouse gas emissions [2]. This work aims to validate the energy simulation of buildings as an R&D&I tool to increase their energy efficiency and reduce their environmental impact, helping to mitigate the...
Chapter
Mobility of doctoral students is considered a critical factor which contributes to the doctoral graduate research performance and the knowledge transfer. The research productivity of doctoral students is still more critical for those novel research groups which have to overcome several barriers before they reach a reasonable stability in research p...
Article
Building renovation plays a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving the climate protection goals. The district scale approach is one of the most effective approaches to accelerate this process of reducing the energy consumption in the building sector as increasing its renovation rates. In this context, the Energy in Buildings an...
Article
Full-text available
An ecological mortar is designed from industrial sub-products, with the objective of utilizing both the slag residues, generated during steel manufacturing processes, and the waste from Polyurethane Foam (PF) panels, generated during refrigerator chamber manufacturing processes. The ecological mortar design involves the dosing of Electric Arc Furna...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
La Unión Europea quiere fomentar los edificios de consumo de energía casi nula (EECN) para mitigar los efectos del calentamiento global. Pero la actual legislación sobre ahorro energético en la edificación no limita numéricamente las demandas, los consumos y las emisiones para distinguir un edificio EECN de uno que no lo es. Además, en España se co...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Spaces with concave shape (U, T, E shape…) with inwards and outwards corners forming concavities are often present in residential and tertiary building energy simulations. In order to develop an energy simulation by means of TRNSYS package, the definition of the building energy zones is made by means of Google SketchUp adding the Trnsys3d plug-in....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The need to refurbish the housing stock with energy efficiency criteria is aligned with the European Union target in order to reduce the CO 2 emissions. This is very important for Spain, because the greater part of the existing housing, even the most recent, were built under codes from 1979 in the best-case scenario. This is because of the European...
Article
Full-text available
Present waste management policies aim to reduce waste environmental impacts and improve resources’ efficiency. The use of waste and recycled materials to develop green construction materials are attracting researchers worldwide to develop new solutions addressed to increase the sustainability of buildings. This work presents a study of a new recycl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The commitment of the European Union to a sustainable and environmentally friendly development is one of the main objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy. The challenge to attain zero energy consumption buildings requires innovating in order to become more efficient and comply with the requirements of Directive 2010/31/EU on energy efficiency of bui...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The use of curtain walls on new and renovated office buildings’ façades is very usual. The optimal use of the natural illumination with this type of walls means both an energy saving on lighting and a better visual comfort for the office workers. In addition, thermal gains in the Winter and a solar control in order to avoid overheating in the Summe...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
La Unión Europea quiere reducir las emisiones de CO2 de los edificios para contribuir a frenar los efectos del cambio climático. Para ello, se pretenden generalizar los edificios con consumo de energía casi nulo (EECN), pero no se han establecido límites numéricos claros en cuanto a consumos y emisiones. La legislación es aún más confusa si se pret...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Achieving a reasonable level of airtightness is important for the energy efficiency of living spaces and the comfort of occupants. The benefits of improved insulation levels and more energy efficient heating systems are lost if warm air can leak out of a building and cold air can leak in. Poor airtightness can be responsible for up to 40% of heat l...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This work shows the importance of energy simulation in residential buildings refurbishment. A case study for a thermal envelope refurbishing of a residential building in Burgos (Spain) is assessed. Three cases have been simulated: first, the current state of the building, then, the contractor’s proposal for the homeowners which is not according to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Durante los años sesenta y setenta del siglo XX tuvo lugar un significativo aumento del parque edificatorio residencial en España ligado al desarrollo económico. Actualmente, se está procediendo a la rehabilitación energética de la envolvente de muchos de esos edificios, ya que fueron construidos sin una legislación clara en materia de ahorro energ...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
La rehabilitación energética de edificios existentes se contempla, en las recientes directivas europeas, como un medio para reducir el consumo de energía en los mismos. En la medida en que el parque de edificios existentes es muy numeroso, este tipo de rehabilitación puede suponer un impacto muy considerable en la mejora de la eficiencia energética...
