Riello Launches Italian Series of Specifiers’ Seminars: Designing The Future of Existing Buildings

Riello is proud to announce the launch of its 2017 seminar program across Italy. "Designing the Future of Existing Buildings" focuses on energy redevelopment, helping heating engineers better analyze a building’s energy-savings potential and navigate today’s regulatory landscape. Riello Group, a leader in products and services for heating, air conditioning and energy efficiency, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

Riello’s tour started in Milan and will continue on to 20 cities across Italy. The seminars aim to strengthen attendees’ knowledge of new regulations and the tools needed to ensure compliance when upgrading existing structures. The Italian regulations covering existing housing and, in particular, air conditioning systems, are aligned with European Directive 31/2010, which sets out rules on the reduction of energy consumption in existing buildings.

“In light of changing legislation, Riello is proud to help professionals involved in the management and redevelopment of existing residential systems navigate these changes,” explained Umberto Ferretti, CEO of the Riello Group. “Delivering innovative technology solutions and continuous training have always been important at Riello. This seminar series helps us share our expertise with the industry, offering all who attend access to tools and relevant regulatory knowledge.”

In recent years, energy redevelopment has become increasingly important as Italy’s building heritage is largely characterized by buildings built long before energy usage and management was a focus. Riello is a certified Energy Service Company (ESCo) and can provide specialised services to increase the energy efficiency of a client’s buildings in areas such as heating, cooling and hot water production. The seminars will provide a foundation for participants to carry out a careful analysis and develop solutions, particularly for the installation of autonomous or centralized air conditioning systems for single and/or multi-family housing.
