BIO

Konstantina studied Mechanical Engineering at N.T.U.A. She realized early the importance of Energy in decision making, so she followed the school's Energy direction.
After she completed her studies, she was interested in how all of what she studied are applied. She started working at a construction site as a supervising mechanical engineer on a large-scale building project.
Her experience at the construction site motivated her to deepen her knowledge in the field of energy. So, in addition to her job at the construction site, she continued her studies with her Master in National Technical University of Athens: “Energy Production and Energy Management”
At her thesis she has developed a software based on the European Standard ISO 13790 in MATLAB, which calculates heating and cooling requirements and consumption in buildings. She used her software to calculate energy consumption in heating and cooling in school buildings.
Based on her thesis she published a scientific paper, which she presented at the international conference "ECOS 2010" in Lausanne.
Her paper was awarded by N.T.U.A with “Thomaidio Award” for a publication of an original work.
She participated in the committee of the Technical Chamber of Greece in formulating the legislative framework for the Energy Efficiency Regulation of Buildings as published in Greece in 2009.
She was also a member of the editorial team of “20701-1 / 2010 technical instructions -Specification of parameters for calculating energy performance of buildings and their energy performance certificate - First Edition” which was issued by the technical chamber of Greece.
She has teached in a number of seminars (over 500 hours) for engineers on subjects like energy saving techniques in buildings, methodology for energy studies, energy certificates etc.
She has given lectures at technical events on geothermal heat pumps, air to water heat pumps and energy saving techniques.
The last years she is working on MEP Building Services Design for large-scale building projects.
Currently she is working together with “KHM OE” on issues related to energy simulation of buildings and LEED certification.
