ScopeToday, improving the energy efficiency of buildings—both existing and new constructions—means enhancing the performance of exterior insulation and cladding, and developing new systems that will allow buildings to generate, store, and manage their own energy.
Tenerrdis has taken a three-pronged approach to tackling the complex systems that are today’s buildings:
Technology ResearchGrenoble-based PRE3CIE is a research lab set up to study and test the quality and robustness of innovative materials and components—like doors, windows, window glazing, and solar protection—for building exteriors.
INES has created a living lab, INCAS, to pave the way for tomorrow’s energy-positive buildings. The lab is made up of a series of houses operating under real-life conditions with test equipment and components.
Key FiguresSince 2005, Tenerrdis has certified 108 R&D projects and demonstrators in the field of energy-efficient buildings, 42 of which have received government funding for a total of €29 million. 50 companies, including 60% innovative small- to mid-sized businesses, are involved in these projects.
