Eurac Research is an applied research centre located in Bozen, Italy, coordinator of the Cultural-E project. Founded in 1992, it currently has 11 institutes organised into four main areas of research: autonomies, mountains, health and technologies.
The Institute for Renewable Energy conducts applied research on advanced energy systems based on or including renewable energy sources. Scientific activities include tests of single components and integrated energy systems in the lab and in the outdoor facilities, energy and environmental monitoring at demonstration sites, energy and comfort modelling and decision support at system, building, cluster, district and regional level.
Annamaria Belleri is senior researcher in the group of Energy Efficient Buildings at the Institute of Renewable Energy.
She completed her Ph.D. in Energy and Environment Technology at the University of Bergamo (Italy) in 2014.
Her research is focused on passive cooling solutions, strategies and design methods to effectively exploit natural ventilation potential when available, with the objective to provide a good indoor environment quality and to reduce building energy consumption. She developed tools to support ventilation design, promoted use of natural ventilation into case studies and provided scientific consultancies to companies and designers. She was involved as task co-leader in the IEA Annex 62 “Ventilative cooling” project and is currently involved as external expert in the CEN/TC 156/WG21 on “Ventilative cooling systems” standardization.
Marco Bailo works as administrative and financial project manager in Eurac Research.
He graduated in development cooperation at the University of Trieste and in languages at the University of Roma Tre.
Marco works in the management and control fields, monitoring tasks and their relevant budget, ensuring the compliance with the Horizon 2020 rules and doing the financial reporting. He has a background as a freelance consultant in the management and design of projects in the fields of education and training and start-ups. Marco has experience as project coordinator and in the interaction with external stakeholders.
Roberto Fedrizzi is the group leader responsible for the activities carried out within the research working team “Sustainable heating and cooling systems”.
He is coordinator of the Horizon 2020 projects BuildHEAT and FLEXINETS. He is operating agent of IEA-SHC Task 56 on the analysis of Building integrated Solar Envelope Systems.
The major activities carried out are: sustainable heating and cooling systems design and laboratory testing, control strategies development.
Research Group Leader
Graduated in Architecture and Innovation (IUAV, Venice) with a master thesis on Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV), she majored in the same sector working on realized case studies and design issues.
The main tasks regard the 3D modelling of buildings, the optimization of BIPV systems at conceptual design stages, the collection of products available on the market, the dissemination of the BIPV technology among architects and the construction sector stakeholders.
She has been involved in several EU funded and commissioned projects.
