In residential buildings, heating and cooling accounts for around 84% of total energy consumption, of which 14% relates to domestic water heating. It is therefore essential to renew heating systems by focusing on green solutions, and one of the possible alternatives is green hydrogen, i.e. hydrogen produced from renewable sources.
In the gas sector, the following trend is expected: a reduction in the use of methane gas in favour of biogas and hydrogen between now and 2050:
In an emergency situation such as that resulting from the spread of COVID-19, the issue of air conditioning in living environments, also taking into account pollutants and pathogens, has also become a matter of absolute priority. Controlled mechanical ventilation (CMV) systems are therefore vital, as they automatically change the air and can be equipped with an exchanger that recovers the heat contained in the expelled hot air and a pathogen abatement element. In order to guarantee healthy air and safeguard the health of people who live and work indoors, it is therefore essential to rely on the action of VMC systems that allow the improvement of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) also through integration with traditional air conditioning systems and smart control systems to achieve the best result in terms of energy efficiency.
