Architecture Solaire et Bioclimatique

Sa mission principale est d’assurer la durabilité et le confort maximal tout en réduisant la consommation énergétique grâce aux techniques architecturales passives et actives. L’objectif donc est d’améliorer l’efficacité énergétique en maîtrisant le confort hygro-thermo-aéraulique d’une construction bâtie. Les principaux axes de recherche sont :

  • Thermo-aéraulique des bâtiments : simulation, expérimentation et éléments de validation
  • Concepts énergétiques passifs et actifs
  • Diagnostic et quantification des besoins énergétiques
  • L’impact des microclimats urbains sur la demande énergétique des bâtiments


  • Diagrammes de confort


    Labellisation des bâtiments (KWh/m2/an)


    Intégration des concepts énergétiques actifs (chauffage et climatisation)
