ENERGY EFFICIENCY – ECOLOGICAL AND ECONOMIC PROFITABILITY

1. INTRODUCTION The mechanisms promoting energy efficiency in Poland were initiated by the introduction of the Act of April 15, 2011 on energy efficiency [1], as amended by introducing a new the Act of May 20, 2016 on energy efficiency [2]. Pursuant to these regulations, an entrepreneur who has implemented /plans to implement an undertaking or undertakings of the same type aimed at improvement, obtained the possibility to apply for an energy efficiency certificate, the so-called “White

ENERGY EFFICIENCY ASSESSMENT OF HEAT INSULATION BUILDING PRODUCTS: FUZZY-PROBABILISTIC APPROACH

1. INTRODUCTION The concept of “energy efficiency” has many interpretations, but if to express the most typical, it obviously will be the degree or measure of efficient use of any energy resource that is brought to the object that is the consumer of these resources. One of the quantitative definitions of energy efficiency of a building can be the Energy conversion efficiency, η = E useful output / E input which is expressed by the ratio of useful work E useful output, expressed in units of
