Abstract

Building energy use in European Union currently accounts for over 40% of total primary energy consumption for heating and cooling is used in the residential sector, 37% in industry and 18% in services. Progress in the direction of a strategy to improve energy efficiency started with Directive 2010/31/EU, followed by the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU which imposed 20% energy saving on total energy consumption by 2020. In addition, the EU with the Directive 249/2013 "Green infrastructures-Strengthening natural capital in Europe", and the new Directive 2018/844 on energy efficiency, recommended solutions of a natural nature, as the construction of green walls and roofs for reducing the energy demand for conditioning of buildings. In this paper, the activity carried on by ENEA on the use of vertical plant systems on buildings as natural solution for improving energy efficiency, it is briefly reported. © 2019, SRAC - Romanian Society for Quality.
