COSTRUIRE GREEN – Il valore dell’innovazione e della ricerca

Si è tenuto giovedì 14/11/2019 l’evento “Costruire Green – Il valore dell’innovazione e della ricerca” che ha visto la partecipazione di aziende e Università, oltre che dei soci della sempre più importante rete regionale “VeGBC – Venetian Green Building Cluster”. L’incontro è stato un momento di condivisione di esperienze, competenze e in particolare ha dato l’opportunità ai partecipanti di conoscere quelli che potrebbero essere i materiali, le tecniche e le soluzioni eco sostenibili per il futuro dell’edilizia.


COSTRUIRE GREEN Il valore dell’innovazione e della ricerca

MR Energy Systems, nella persona dell’Ing. Mauro Roglieri, Vicepresidente RIR Venetian Green Building Cluster, condurrà i lavori, nell’evento “Costruire Green – Il valore dell’innovazione e della ricerca – Nuove soluzioni tecnologiche e di prodotto per un’edilizia sempre più digitalizzata” che si terrà giovedì 14/11/2019 dalle 09:30 alle 13:00 presso la Cittadella dell’edilizia – Banchina dell’Azoto, 15 – Mestre (Ve).

Le università e le aziende venete sono conosciute in tutto il mondo per la loro capacità di innovare. Ciò oggi consente anche alla filiera delle costruzioni di diventare protagonista di percorsi di ricerca e sviluppo orientati alla sostenibilità. È un’esigenza ormai riconosciuta anche a livello istituzionale. In questa direzione vanno, infatti, le politiche della Regione Veneto a sostegno di Reti innovative come RIR VeGBC che promuove l’integrazione di sistema puntando alla valorizzazione di nuovi progetti, per consentire da un lato una crescita competitiva del settore delle costruzioni del Veneto e allo stesso tempo per favorire l’affermarsi di un’edilizia sempre più sostenibile.
In questo ambito si colloca il seminario del 14 novembre che costituisce il primo momento di approfondimento tecnologico in vista della definizione e dell’approvazione da parte della Regione del progetto di Ricerca e sviluppo della Rete destinato ad avviarsi nel 2020.

MR Energy at EXPO Milano 2015

Biocasas_82Buildings in which we work and live, are responsible for 80% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. This is due to energy consumption for lighting, summer air conditioning, winter heating, but also to the use of natural resources and building materials which create additional greenhouse gas emissions while being produced and disposed at the end of their life cycle.

Welldom, with Biocasa_82, commissioned by Claudia and Enrico Moretti Polegato (President Diadora, VP Geox), demonstrated how a building, in this case a residential house, can achieve the highest standards of respect for the environment throughout its entire life cycle, resulting at the same time an extremely comfortable place to live.

Biocasa_82 is compliant with the international standard of sustainability LEED for Homes at ‘Platinum’ level, but Welldom wanted to calculate analytically the reduction of GHG emissions throughout the life cycle, compared to the construction of a traditional building in Class C. This study was commissioned to MR Energy.

On 14th September 2015, the project will be presented to the public at EXPO Milano 2015.

Two DOHA weeks

Started the 26th of November and ending the 7th of December, COP18, the 18th conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is being held this year in DOHA, Qatar.

Back in 1992, countries joined an international treaty, the UNFCCC, to cooperatively consider what they could do to limit average global temperature increases and the resulting climate change, and to cope with whatever impacts were, by then, inevitable.

The Kyoto Protocol, defined during COP3 in Kyoto, and entered into force in 2005, legally binds developed countries to emission reduction targets. The Protocol’s first commitment period started in 2008 and ends in 2012.

At COP17 in Durban, governments of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol decided for a second commitment period, from 2013 onwards, which could last 5 or 8 years.

In the last years, emissions of developing economies have doubled, becoming higher than those of developed countries. The urgency of coming to a new global agreement has been repeated many times this year by IEA, World Bank, PWC and many others, waiting for the publication of the fifth IPCC’s report. In fact, if we want to limit global warming to +2°C, we need to act now.

DOHA’s delegates need to work very hard during these two weeks, in order to sort out the three folowing main items:

  • Kyoto Protocol: define the continuation until 2020 and probably its phase out, shifting the carbon market into a new agreement
  • Long-term Cooperation Agreements, LCA: probably end the work, keeping what is good (Green Climate Fund and Technology Executive Committee) shifting it into the new agreement
  • Ad-hoc Working Group on Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, ADP: main discussion item, set-up a strong path and working program until 2015, conveying issues like GCF, TEC, global carbon market, adaptation fund, etc.

The future agreement, based on ADP, needs to overcome distinctions between developing and developed economies (Annex I and non Annex I), if we really want to have some hope to meet the 2°C target (many think that we already missed this target).

Two weeks of very important work for the +10.000 delegates.

Heritage as sustainability

MR Energy Systems, as a member of GBC Italia, is particularly glad to announce this event which will take place in Venice this coming Friday 22nd of June 2012. The important international event with the participation of international institutions as UNESCO and World GBC, and an exceptional speaker as Rick Fedrizzi, president of U.S. GBC and  chair of World GBC.

The event intends to present the ambitious development of a protocol for the sustainability of Historic Building, where Italy (GBC Italia) will play a leadership role in the international context. The protocol has the aim of merging two very important concepts: the LEED® sustainability criteria on one side, and the enormous Italian knowledge of restoration and conservation of historic heritage. An innovative standard, with the aim of facilitating the culture of sustainability in the built environment, and the conservation and protection of values and culture. A tool which will make the dialogue between operators and public authorities easier and more measurable.

The registration to the event is free of charge until the end of available places.

UNECE – Green Economy Seminar

GBC Italia took part to the meeting organized by UNECE on the 4th of April 2012;  The delegation of GBC Italia was composed by Mauro Roglieri and Francesco Bedeschi, both members of the Executive Board of GBC Italia.

The participation to this prestigious meeting matches very well with GBC Italia’s mission of diffusing the knowledge of Green Building Rating Systems in the relevant National and International authorities, to support the promotion and diffusion of usage of protocols as a tool to drive building market transformation towards sustainability.

The objective of this seminar was to discuss cost-efficient and “green” solutions, which can make the housing sector more sustainable. These include improvements to energy efficiency, environmental performance (water and waste management), and resilience to climate change. Greening homes is a part of the green economy concept, which is in turn at the heart of renewed efforts to integrate environmental and social considerations within the mainstream of economic decision-making in the run-up to Rio+20 and beyond.

The seminar has being organized back to back with a meeting of the UNECE Working Group to discuss a possible framework convention on sustainable housing. More than 70 UNECE member state representatives attended the working group meeting. More than 30 participated to the seminar, which facilitated the identification of priorities for the preparation of the September 2013 Ministerial Conference on Housing and Land Management.

GBC Italia presented the ‘bottom-up’ role that Green Rating Systems such as GBC Home or LEED® can have as an accelerator of change.
