    Hi All,

    I have to translate in english "firma energetica", which is a graphical method to assess the energy performance of a building/apartment.
    I don't think that "energy signature" is the correct way to translate....
    Does anybody has a better suggestion?

    Thank you!

    Premesso che non so a quale metodo ti riferisci, io direi Energy Assessment.

    Ciao Lorena,

    energy assessment è un pò generico. Quello a cui mi riferisco è un metodo preciso, che fa un grafico dei consumi in funzione della temperatura esterna. é stato sviluppato in Svizzera e in francese si chiama proprio "signature energetique"...

    Grazie cmq!

    Hi,

    Does it mean something like THIS? - an infrared picture that shows energy losses.

    Hi,

    no, actually it is a graph with in x axis you have the external temperature over for instance one month or one year, and on y axis you have the energy consumption due to heating, for example.

    Sì hai ragione, la signature energetique (firma energetica) si riferisce ad un particolare grafico/scheda di valutazione della performance dell'edificio e non alla valutazione energetica generale.
