Rage 14 . POSTGAZET'KE, APRIL-2-Tr 302-,,,., , LO SAPEVATE CHE ...? Energia pulita per 15,000 abitanti: il commune di Brunico, in provincial di Bolzano, e' il primo in Italia in procinto di diventare al 100% di rinnovabile energia. Nel terrJtorio sono gia' istallati centinaia di metri quadrati di pannelli termici solari, visibili sui tetti delle abitazioni e su quelli di strutture pubbliche. II fotovoltaico si sta diffondendo su un numero sempre maggiore di case e di edifici pubblici. Tutta questa attivita' fotovoltaica si aggiunge al vecchio sistema dell'idroelettrico che e' sparso lungo l'intero ter- ritorio. II fotovoltaico e' stato pure istallato sui tetti della scuola elementare, di Brunico, e sulla caserma circon- dariale dei Vigili del Fuoco. Questo permette al commune di risparmiare. Un'altro edificio e' il centro scolastico dove e' stato istallato un impianto a copertura parziale per il fabbisogno termico dell'edificio. Infatti la superficie di collettori istallata, part a 750 metri quadrati, fornisce energia a 3 serbatoi interrati della capacita' totale di 3,000 metri quadrati. L'impianto di riscaldamento e' costituito da radiatori funzionanti a bassa temperatura e da pannelli radianti su pareti. 11 regolamento edilizio, redatto nel 2010, prevede che negli edifice pubblici e privati di nuova costruzione, sia obbligatoria la copertura del 25% del fabbisogno energetico totale, non meno del 50% del fabbisogno di energia per la produzione di acqua calda sani- taria, mediante l'utilizzo di fonti rinnovabili. DID YOU KNOW THAT ,,,? Clean energy for 15,000 inhabitants: The town of Brunico, in the Province of Bolzano, Italy, is the first municipality to become a place with 100% renewable energy. They have already installed thousands of square meters of thermal solar panels, visible on top of house roofs and on top of pub- lic buildings. The photovoltaic technology is spreading to an ever increasing number of houses and public buildings. This photovoltaic activity joins the hydroelectric system that is present throughout the territory. The photovoltaic system has also been installed on the roofs of the elemen- tary school in Brunico and on the district fire station build- ing. This makes possible for the town to save money. On another building, a system With a partial covering has been installed to warm up the school center. In fact, the surface with solar collectors, about 750 square meters, supply energy to three underground containers with a total ca- pacity of 3,000 cubic meters. The heating system consists of radiators, which work at medium temperatures and have radiating panels along the walls. The building code, adopted in 2010, provides that in public as well as in private build- ings the supply of 25% of the total energy need, but none less than 50% of energy needed for the production of warm, healthy water, through the use of renewable energy.
