Cover Story (view full-size image): A new semi-probabilistic methodology for the definition of energy fragility curves suitable for a macro-classification of building stock inspired and coupled with the seismic fragility curves is proposed. The approach is applied to reinforced concrete residential buildings of the Italian stock. Buildings were classified, modeled and simulated and fragility curves built. By focusing on the interactions between structural and energetic criticalities, it is shown how these curves can be useful for decision-makers to identify priorities and thus improve seismic safety and energy quality. Non-integrated approaches resulted in higher investments and lower efficiency. View this paper
