Abstract

The aim of this paper is to study, evaluate and demonstrate the technical feasibility of nearly zero energy buildings the Athens’ urban context. To achieve this purpose, the energy performance of selected typical residential buildings in the urban Athens area have been investigated, in order to properly identify the buildings’ energy requirement in winter and summer conditions and finally propose targeted retrofitting hypothesis towards nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs). The study has been developed on the real case study of a social housing compound of the '60s, with typical structures built by reinforced concrete and infill walls. The setting is located in Peristeri suburbs, in the western Athens Metropolitan Area, which, together with the central Athens, present the highest heat island (HI) intensity of the whole city. Focusing on urban areas, the proposed research considers the buildings and the related space as a whole.
