Abstract

FERNANDEZ, Amalita; GARZON, Beatriz Silvia  and  ELSINGER, David. IMPACT OF PASSIVE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN STRATEGIES ON THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY LABEL IN ARGENTINA. Rev. hábitat sustentable [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.1, pp.56-67. ISSN 0719-0700.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22320/07190700.2020.10.01.05.

This work proposes making a comparative analysis between the Energy Supply Index (IPE, in Spanish), defined by the National Housing Labeling Program based on the IRAM 11900 Standard, and the Passive Architectural Design Strategies (EPDA, in Spanish) defined in said standard. The comparison is applied to energy retrofit solutions for the evaluation of the improvements in Energy Efficiency (EE) in a dwelling in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina. Its goal is to evaluate the incidence of EPDAs on the IPE value of the dwelling. An assessment is made regarding their importance as a starting point for achieving a more comfortable, more energy efficient and sustainable architecture. It is concluded that passive strategies do not have a numerically substantial influence on the IPE, that determines the energy efficiency label of residential units in Argentina.
