MR Energy presente al Webinar Green Building: strategie e soluzioni per un’edilizia sostenibile – Gli edifici storici.

E’ noto ormai come il patrimonio edilizio italiano esistente comprende un’elevata percentuale di edifici storici, nei quali il raggiungimento dei nuovi obiettivi di performance energetiche e di confort presuppone un approccio integrato con la sensibilità di conservazione degli elementi caratteristici del fabbricato.  Tra le principali e significative sfide odierne c’è proprio la riqualificazione del patrimonio edilizio esistente.

Nell’ambito di tale scenario il protocollo GBC Historic Building® risulta essere uno strumento innovativo e fondamentale per sposare sostenibilità e conservazione degli edifici storici.

L’applicazione dei protocolli previsti per la certificazione energetico-ambientale, ha permesso infatti agli edifici storici certificati di migliorare le performances energetiche e di ridurre i consumi idrici grazie a sistemi di riutilizzo delle acque. L’attenzione al miglioramento del comfort ambientale interno richiesto dal protocollo GBC HB, ha inoltre permesso di restituire agli edifici storici certificati una funzionalità adeguata alle nuove esigenze e di contribuire ad una maggiore durabilità delle opere.

Nel corso del webinar tenutosi martedì 14/09/2021, MR Energy rappresentata da Federica Ariaudo, ha mostrato alcuni aspetti tecnici specifici relativi al protocollo GBC Historic Building®.


Nuove qualifiche professionali per MR Energy!

Il mese di Aprile 2021 ha segnato due importanti news per il team MR Energy Systems: – la qualifica professionale di Mauro Roglieri come Commissioning Authority certificata da CEPAS (Bureau Veritas) e la qualifica professionale di Federica Ariaudo come WELL AP.   Due importanti attestazioni da aggiungere al lungo elenco di qualifiche professionali che il nostro team può mettere a disposizione.

Emissions Trading: reduced allocation of free allowances for new entrants

The European Commission adopted new measures to implement the judgment issued last April 2016 by the Court of Justice.

As reported in our previous  article, the judgment had invalidated the cross-sectoral correction factor (CSCF) used to allocate free allowances from 2013 to 2020 to stationary installations in the scope of EU-ETS, granting 10 months to the Commission to establish a new amount.

The recently approved Decision (linked at the bottom of this article), defines the new CSCF to be applied to all new allocations adopted after 1 March 2017: new entrants installations and increased capacity of existing ones will receive a reduced free allocation of about 5% compared to the current system.

As defined by the judgment, recalculations will not affect the allocations already approved, that will remain unchanged, except in case of variations in activity or capacity levels, as already defined by the current Regulation on monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions.

As already provided in Directive 2009/29/EC, the allocation of free allowances for district heating and high-efficiency cogeneration is not subject to the CSCF.

In the short term this Decision is not expected to have a material impact on carbon market.

The new correction factor will not be applied to the allocations in the period 2021 – 2030, that will follow the stricter linear reduction factor currently discussed in the European Parliament.

Emissions Trading: free allowances to 2020 shall be re-determined

On 28th April 2016 the EU Court of Justice declared invalid the maximum annual amount of free allowances for greenhouse gas emissions determined by the Commission for the period 2013-2020.

The judgment is a consequence of the legal actions that a number of companies included in the scope of ETS brought before the courts in Italy, the Netherlands and Austria against the National Authorities entrusted with the allocation of GHG allowances. The subject of dispute was the calculation method applied to define the maximum annual amount of allowances.

As a consequence, the Cross Sectoral Correction Factor (CSCF) applied to preliminary allocations with Decision 2013/448/EU is not valid and shall be re-calculated on the basis of new data to be provided by the Member States; the maximum annual amount of allowances could be higher or lower than that thus far determined by the Commission.

The Commission is granted 10 months to establish a new amount, whereas the previous allocations of allowances cannot be called into question.

The full text of the judgment is available on the CURIA website http://curia.europa.eu/juris/celex.jsf?celex=62014CJ0191&lang1=it&type=TXT&ancre=
