ENERGY BALANCE OF THE "CITTA DEL DIVERTIMENTO"
CIRPS − University of Rome "La Sapienza" Via Eudossina 18 00184 − Rome, Italy
The "Citta del Divertimento" of Rome - in Valmontone,
Italy − is a tourist pole including recreational Town (with a
theme park), a golf court, a congress and tourist centre, several
hotels and a factory outlet.
In the first step of this work we have analysed all kind of
tourist pole energy needs (including the mobility energy needs)
with their related load diagrams for each single period. In the
second step we have analysed the available renewable energy
sources; according to the result of the energy needs and
available renewable energy sources analysis, we have studied
the possible technology solution both the energy use (mobility,
conditioning, etc) and heat, electricity and hydrogen
production. In the last step we have calculated the sustainability
rate of the tourist pole by renewable energy sources.
We have considered tow scenarios: short time scenario and
medium time scenario. In the first one we have considered only
the technologies commercially available at the present and the
current efficiency. In the medium term scenario, we have
considered also the application of the technologies in the
demonstration phase at the present, end the possible efficiency
increase of the other technologies.
The relevant results of the study are the following: the
tourist pole is a high density energy consumption area.
However, in the short term scenario it is possible to obtain a
good sustainability rate, and in the medium term scenario it is
possible to obtain the total self sustainability rate of the tourist
pole by renewable energy sources.
