Sector 5 - Diffusion of smart building and building automation solutions for living comfort, sustainability, energy saving and structural safety

Why valorize the Smart technologies?

Smart Building is the strategic market for innovation in terms of relaunching the construction industry, for the well-being and living comfort, safety, energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and, therefore, competitiveness for companies.

Considering the intrinsic problems of the regional territory - high seismic risk from the structural point of view, high primary energy requirements (especially for cooling) linked to the typically Mediterranean climate, high hydro-geological risk due to landslides and floods, old age of the structural and plant of the existing building heritage - is fundamental to spread the concept of integrated design and the use of smart technologies for real-time monitoring of the structures.

In this way the building is a new building, with network of information that could be better used to achieve greater performance efficiency.

Benefits deriving from the use of Smart technologies
  • Intelligent integrated management of the building-plant system;
  • Protection of architectural and cultural heritage;
  • Improvement of environmental sustainability;
  • Increase in energy savings and optimization of water resources;
  • Increased level of in-home safety and human health;
  • Increased structural safety
Objectives of the Green HoMe Pole

Transpose, interpret and enhance the technological needs of companies, with the aim of favoring the sharing of knowledge and the convergence of investments on new trajectories of development of innovative products or services. To make available high-value specialist services designed to promote and encourage the innovation objectives by the companies.
