Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


As a first step towards improving the effectiveness of activities aimed at rationalising the use of energy in the buildings of the region of Lombardy, a database of representative data relating to the region's building stock has been set up. It is called BESIS and contains the most significant physical and energy data relating to the buildings. This first volume of the report provides a description of the functions of the system; of the sources of data, which must be adequate, reliable and such that they will allow constant updating of the information entered; of the structure of the information, which is made up of raw data, reference data and calculated data; of the use of the information for the calculation of energy indicators, energy requirements and consumption, etc.; and of the quality of the data. A plan for the formation of a pool of data suppliers is also provided as an appendix.
