A technical and scientific symposium was organised by the CEC's JRC-Ispra in association with the Association of Architects of the province of Varese. The subjects discussed were the rational use of "clean" thermal energy to run air-conditioning systems and ensure the comfort of the occupants of buildings, as well as the use of solar energy to heat water for domestic or industrial purposes. A computer simulation of the internal thermal and physical behaviour of perimeter walls was presented. The symposium ended with a discussion on the procedure to be applied in determining the qualitative energy parameters which characterise the heat consumption of a building, which are particularly significant if the building is to be bought or sold.
