Energy and CO2 emissions savings in logistics facilities with climate conditioning

We present the summary of a recent study carried out by the UPC-JG university chair within the current research agreement with Montepino Logistics.

In some logistics buildings there are spaces where personnel work sedentarily, and which must be climatically conditioned. But at the same time, the operation of the building requires maximum transparency and flexibility, so it is not possible to physically make these spaces independent.

Through CFD (computational fluid dynamics) studies, validated with measurements made in real time, we have built a digital model of the building. In the model we have introduced and validated the localized air conditioning solution that meets the required permeability requirements and generates a reduction in CO2 emissions of 45%, compared to an initial solution that consisted of tempering the entire building.
