• The structure uses a thermal coat and a cladding entirely in local stone. Heating and cooling takes place via the underfloor system.
The energy class of the building is A4.
- Electric energy
• The structure has a photovoltaic system with storage that covers over 100% of total consumption.
• L’Eremito uses vacuum solar thermal systems and a tracking solar concentrator that allow for the production of over 100% coverage of the consumption necessary for heating the building in the winter months, domestic hot water and a hot water tub with hydromassage .
- Cooling down
• The cooling system takes place through the use of an underfloor conditioning system entirely powered by the photovoltaic system.
• The structure uses only very low voltage LED lamps as well as presence detectors in the corridors to minimize consumption when not needed.
The WC systems have low water consumption.
• Rainwater is collected in special cisterns used for irrigation.
- Home automation
• The home automation system manages and gives aggregate information in real time on all water and energy consumption with the relative productions.
• The restaurant is vegetarian and the cuisine is based on self-produced organic products from the garden and from local suppliers.
• Eremito tries to minimize the production of waste and the residual part is differentiated and composted.
Our use of plastic has sharply declined over time. Bottled water has been replaced with a reverse osmosis system.
The amenities and cleaning products are organic, biodegradable and the containers are refillable as we are committed to the Plastic Free goal of the entire structure.
• There are recharging columns with a photovoltaic system for our guests’ electric vehicles.
- The projects
• L’Eremito has already reached energy self-sufficiency and we try in our short-term programs to reduce if not eliminate the structure’s environmental impact by also rationalizing the environmental aspects that seem less relevant at first sight.
