R&D for Energy Positive Building and Districts. Our aim Drastically decrease energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions in both new and existing buildings providing comfortable and healthy environments for the citizens to work and live. This is achieved by fostering and engaging an active sector for the production, supply/distribution of advanced systems, solutions and added value services in the design, construction and operation phases. The aim is to satisfy the needs for the built environment, through the development and deployment of a full Research, Development and Innovation program in those countries where we are present. R&D for Energy Positive Building and Districts. Our Capacities 30 people multidisciplinary scientific team. Dynamic software for building and districts design. Research laboratories on indoor comfort and Installation design. Micro-grid laboratory for integration of new energy components like Batteries and Electrical Vehicle. Demonstration building of two stories for building components fully monitored and computer parameterized. Pilot plant for energy generation CO2 free, at building level.
