Research Objective:

This field of research aims at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with energy consumption in cities and buildings.

In order to achieve this, we are working on the implementation of the minimum energy consumption building (MEB) model, which encompasses the concept of a building with almost zero energy consumption (nZEB) and its evolution towards a building with zero energy consumption (ZEB) as well as a building with a positive energy balance (+ZEB).

The passive design of buildings, the improvement of associated systems and facilities, the integration renewable energies (solar photovoltaic, wind, geothermal, and hydrogen), the energy rehabilitation, consulting and instrumentation and data analysis for the improvement of energy efficiency in buildings and cities constitute our DNA as the field of research action.
