Abstract

Within the functional recovery project of the urban industrial area which originally hosted British American Tobacco (BAT) in Bologna (1950–2007), the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA), contributed to identifying priority issues for \“responsible design for sustainable energy management”. The outlined innovative solutions have been collected in a Technical Annex to tender on \“Industrial Research Centre” Design Competition. A comprehensive and holistic approach has been followed in order to develop a framework whereby design solutions can be described in terms of objectives, strategies and targets. Special applications on water balance have been developed to assess water needs, mainly concerning the pre-design phase. Keywords: functional recovery, responsible design, sustainable energy management, technical annex, water balance, needs, assessment. 1 Introduction The choice to develop a \“responsible design approach for sustainable energy management for Labs” has taken place within activities carried out by ENEA – related to the Regional Research Network for hi-tech industries and, moreover, to the framework of European Funds Program 2007-2011 POR–FRSR (regional project) – due to the setting up of 10 technology and industrial research centers
