(Rome) On June 25th, Villa Altieri - Palace of Culture and Historical Memory of Rome, hosts the regional conference "Limiting the environmental impact of public buildings: where are we?", Organized by Città Metropolitana Roma Capitale.

The conference closes the first phase of the Interreg Project - Support which addresses the difficulties encountered by many partner cities and regions in implementing sustainable energy policies. The construction sector is rapidly transforming itself based on the growing demand for energy and environmental quality. A real cultural and technological revolution that is leading to radical changes in all phases of the building process: from design to construction techniques, from the use of materials to energy and plant technology.

One of the main aspects of this path is that of the new energy identity of the building and the possibility of making it energy producer, of which it itself needs, through the use of renewable energy sources and the efficiency of the building envelope and the plants.

But the main challenge of energy efficiency is played in the public construction sector, in which the most rigorous legislation and the understandable need for visibility require a particularly virtuous approach. For these reasons the role of communication and dissemination of the results of three years of activity of the Project SUPPORT, purpose of the Conference, assumes a substantial and strategic importance for the future of regional programming.

Città Metropolitana Roma Capitale is the Territorial Coordinator of the Covenant of Mayors and supports local administrations in the energy transition to move to a low-carbon economy and within the project has identified as the main action to be undertaken, the construction of a table of permanent work of consultation of local authorities involving the Lazio Region and ENEA.

The conference will be attended by Patrizia Giancotti of Metropolitan City of Rome and Karl-Ludwig Schibel and Maurizio Zara of the Alliance for Climate Italy who will present respectively the experience of the SUPPORT Project, the Interreg Med ‘ENERJ’ Project and the transition from PAES to PAESC.

Followed by interventions on different models of innovation by Flavio Monosilio of ANCE, Luca Rubini, ATI National Secretary General, Francesco Belcastro of FIRE (Italian Federation for the Rational use of Energy), Enzo Pinci of the Association of historic Italian residences and Tiziana Gallo, MISE consultant and creator and technical coordinator of the "smart buildings" program of the Municipality of Fano.

Moderates Mauro Spagnolo, director of the magazine Rinnovabili.it.
