Research programs

ENVIE
This project aims to create 3D models of cities with environmental and economic information to help public players in their decision-making. 
SIRADEL provides 3D model of the cities and thermal losses maps. Siradel brings together all information in the final models.
METEODYN provides indicators about wind and solar resource, pedestrian climatic comfort
MGDIS brings social and economic data thanks to his knowledge of INSEE or SIRENE database.
CERMA (laboratory of the School of Architecture, Nantes), analyses lighting and urban atmosphere

SWIP
The Swip project (New innovative solutions, components and tools for the integration of wind energy in urban and peri-urban areas) aims to develop the small wind market in Europe. This project is managed by CIRCE Fundation and brings together 10 European partners. The project team is working on a new wind potential assessment methodology, a low cost generator, new blade design and a supervisory and control system (SCADA) to improve O&M tasks. Such measures should help reduce the initial investment of these turbines and improve their attractiveness. 

ORCHIDEE
This project aims to develop  tools for renovation and design of smart housing and eco-districts using renewables in tropical areas. This project is managed by the ADEME – French Energy Agency with the partnership of Meteodyn, Reunion Island University, IRSTV (Research institute in urban sciences), SOLENER (environemental urban design engineering), IMAGEEN (Renewables in buildings) and FedSOL (Solar building engineering).
