Thermal comfort and EPB in residential building: a commented case study in Ravena, Italy

Kristian Fabbri, Lamberto Tronchin

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to investigate the relationship between Indoor Environmental Quality index (IEQ): thermal comfort index and indoor temperature trend in moderate thermal environments, in buildings that belong to the Class A with reference to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD). The work consists of the measurement of IEQ and energy efficiency in a residential building located in centre-north of Italy. The results of the measurements, as well as the PMV-PPD indexes are presented and commented. These indexes could be a criteria to test if EPBD labelling building could be coherent with EN 15251 requirements.
