Abstract

This paper aims to provide an assessment of a part of school building stock in Rome, through analysis of qualitative and quantitative data referred to a sample of 684 buildings used as primary school. This research designs a start point useful for administration to defining possible strategies and policies to reduce consumptions in this sector. The study has been performed by describing the characteristic of buildings related to construction age and comparing buildings’ energy label with the thermal consumption metering, in order to obtain a model with a high level of objectivity and accuracy. The results show the necessity of a spread and deep intervention on school buildings for its high potential in energy and costs reduction. Keywords: sustainability, energy label, energy, efficiency, schools.
