Abstract

Today, world carbon energy consumption has increased dramatically. The survival of the Earth is endangered by pollution, produced by excessive oil and carbon over use. The sector that consumes this 40% of total energy is construction which needs innovative models for integrated ecological- energy - economic forecast. The research set up an integrated model for the overall assessment of a building having alternative characteristics: sustainable, vs. unsustainable or Common or Business As Usual BAS. The research takes into consideration the energy consumption for the thermal management and climate metabolism of the buildings and the consequent impacts in terms of CO2 emissions. The results obtained validate the adoption of ecological cork panels for passivation and insulation in sustainable building vs. common. The research scientifically and accurately quantifying two alternative (sustainable vs. BAS) prototype buildings, comparatively testing three Energy Performance Simulation Programs (Energy Plus; Termus; Blumatica Energy) ascertaining the coherence and convergence of all their output and results.
