On 12th December in Paris 159 countries signed an agreement on the climate with historic proportions: they’ll face the problem of global warming by trying to reduce the planet temperature (compared to pre-industrial their limit goal goes from 2°C to 1.5 °C).
To achieve this goal it is necessary to reach the decarbonisation of the global economy in time to 2050. Green energy resources will be the key. It is also important to minimize the consumption of energy for sustainable development.
In this sense it has already begun to think in terms of classes of energy consumption or energy efficiency classes. The house for example is in the spotlight of European countries since 2000 with the Lisbon Strategy with the 20-20-20 target, which means to reduce by 20% the consumption of primary energy by 2020.
The passive house concept becomes important in terms of energy savings. Each country has established its own criteria for classification. So the passive house is a building completely disconnected from the gas supply and sometimes uses geothermal or electricity privilengiando photovoltaics.
Within this context Veneto Vetro’s products for the architecture hav the highest requirements of the market (thermal insulation both in breaking down the solar heating in summer and because low-emissivity going to block heat loss in winter thanks to triple double glazing, films and fills gas).
Many countries, including Italy, providing tax incentives for the purchase of passive houses or renovation with energy improvement.
