THE OFFICE FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC STOCK BUILDINGS

The first step of a path towards establishing a policy promoting EE and RES in the building stock owned by a public administration is to fix the status of knowledge and administrative experience about EE and RES held by the public offices. The following table helps in getting an overview of the ordinary services offered today by the public administration while facing the management of the public building stock and, in particular, the management of the public historic building stock. By a SWOT Analysis the table gives hints of weaknesses and threats that should be overcome to get an effective policy for EE and RES.

THE ENERGY DATABASE OF THE PUBLIC BUILDING STOCK

The energy Database of the Public Building stock has a key role in the "governance" of public buildings, helping the elaboration of Action Plans and programs of intervention and preventative maintenance. The database will be organized as an information tool/ platform where specific data related to each single building should converge periodically. The database is essential for an integrated management of building / facilities / energy sources.

MEASURES FOR EE AND RES

The energy database of public building stocks allows the evaluation of potential measures for EE and RES to be implemented in each building. Possibly, such a process should be carried out through an energy audit of the buildings, including a numerical simulation of the energy behavior of the building and a cost-benefit-analysis of the single measures. If the energy audit of a building is not available, an estimation of the effect of a specific action may be performed, according to similar situations already known from other buildings. All measures for the building shell and thermal plants should be considered and they should be prioritized according to total and specific consumption of the building, as well as need of maintenance of specific building components (due to degradation or need to guarantee preservation of highest safety levels inside and outside the building) and opportunities for specific investments (availability of financial support for specific measures, of incentives, etc.)..

LOCAL ACTION PLAN

Having defined the possible measures for EE and RES of the public building stock, the further step is the developing of an Action Plan. Developing a Local Action Plan means devising and implementing a sustainable energy policy for the building stock owned by a Public Authority. Developing an Action Plan requires to identify specific targets and objectives. The target is represented by the group of buildings which the local authority intends to include in the action plan. The objectives represent the goals expected to be reached by the Action Plan: percentage of energy savings, environmental aspects, building conservation, volume of investments, etc. Different kinds of actions and measures may contribute to the achievement of the objectives. Actions should be evaluated and modulated according to available technologies, time required for implementation, costs and investments, financial opportunities and incentives, barriers and risks. Actions must be discussed and concerted within Municipal departments.

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LOCAL ACTION PLAN AND PILOT ACTION

Implementation of the Local Action Plan cannot rely on a standard approach towards execution of construction and plant retrofit works. A wider perspective is required in order to adopt financial tools and new approaches towards procurement and contracts.

MONITORING

Defining a uniform monitoring system to assess and evaluate energy efficiency actions in public buildings, especially historic ones, is a very ambitious task. In fact no methodology is available in the literature. Historical buildings from different eras and with various building standards can be badly compared. In addition the buildings can be partly reconstructed, being unequally used, or having a different use respect to the original one. It is very difficult and extensive to detect the existing energetic status as well as to evaluate other aspects like environmental impact, cost effectiveness, etc.
