Due to higher demand for housing in Malta, local single-family dwellings, typically terraced houses, are being demolished to make way for maisonettes and multiple storey apartments. This increases the energy demand per square metre that would lead to a greater load on the infrastructure. This paper describes the first example of building an energy efficient housing block that integrates energy efficient measures and renewable energy systems, as a sample of Maltese housing stock working towards a sustainable housing vision.
Acronym of the case
Energy Efficient Social Housing in Malta - Birkirkara Tal-Ftieh, a Pilot Study
Traditional Building methodology can easily be modified to accommodate energy efficient measures and RE technologies. This augurs well for a low carbin building development & enrergy efficiency throughout.
