Automation of Passive Processes: Energy Efficiency in Adjusting to the Environmental Constraints

Bruno Marques and Luís Pestana Baptista
Abstract—Nowadays, the promotion of sustainable architectural solutions represents an important promotion and development highlight, although destined to a very specific target audience – the ones interested in the environmental aspects and with high purchasing power. However, the Sustainability and Energy Efficiency issue is universal and can only get a satisfactory answer by the society widespread involvement. Despite the population sensitivity to these questions, the fact is the existing architectural solutions are too far apart from the middle class expectations, investment power, rhythm and everyday way of life. Thus, we explore the recovery of buildings as a more economically viable option, proposing the development of a Domotic system specifically designed for the house Passive Processes promotion, which will ensure optimal comfort conditions, efficiency and the constant building management and its processes.

Index Terms—Automation, building rehabilitation, domotic, energy efficiency, inova domus, passive processes.
