ABSTRACT
Increasing the energy performance of a building implies, to a great degree, optimizing the energy balance of the given building, while energy saving, in many instances, is an easy to access, effective tool for it. Energy saving, symbolically called “the new energy source”, represents a first step in any strategy for energy efficiency, to optimize energy use and to reduce the fossil fuels used to produce it and onsequently to educe the emissions of greenhouse effect gases. In this respect, the industrial sector offers a high potential in saving energy. Referring to the thermal energy associated with the industrial processes, by recovering technological waste heat one sustains energy saving by using this heat in thermal systems that ensures the microclimate in industrial spaces. This article highlights several ways of recovering the technological waste heat for an industrial production hall and its influence on the building’s thermal balance.

Keywords: energy performance, technological waste heat, recovery.
