Insulation is the most cost-effective way of improving energy efficiency in buildings. The principle of “Trias Energetica” shows the way to tackle energy usage in general. Trias Energetica is a way of dealing with energy to achieve energy savings, reduction of energy dependence and environmental benefits, whilst maintaining comfort and progress. Applying this principle to the building stock means that a good insulation is a pre-requisite for sustainable buildings.
The 3 steps to reach Trias Energetica are:
