Faced with societal and environmental challenges on global warming, less energy consumption has become a priority. The MIB project is based on the improvement of housing (new and to be rehabilitated). The objective of this project is to improve a particular architectural structure: the Trombe wall. This wall represents what is called a passive solar system of facade.

This structure combines three functions: to capture heat, distribute it and store it. In a context of sustainable development, buildings must be designed according to solar inputs, which are an inexhaustible source of energy supply and its use does not produce pollutant emissions or waste.

Our research will provide technical solutions to the following questions: how to consume less energy in a home in winter without risking to degrade its comfort? How to also benefit from summer comfort without creating overheating problems?

This project is held by FEMTO-ST (Sylvie Bégot sylvie.begot@univ-fcomte.fr) and is supported by the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region and the National Research Agency (ANR):

One Ph.D position is opened for this project. To apply please contact directly by email Sylvie Begot.
