The GreEn-ER center for innovation in renewable resources and energy has been up and running for a year now. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on December 5. Every day, some 1,500 people—students enrolled at Ense3 and in Masters programs like Grenoble-Alps University’s UFR Phitem and researchers from G2ELAB* and the Institut Carnot Énergies du Futur—use GreEn-ER’s facilities.
Over the past year, GreEn-ER has also hosted a full calendar of events, including the Hydro 21 meeting and AFIG Days. This fall, Ense3 is holding a six-lecture series on interculturality at the facility.
In other notable GreEn-ER news, a weather station equipped with state-of-the-art sensors to measure solar irradiance was recently installed on the building’s roof. The data collected will be used to manage building systems and will also be available for use by students and research scientists.
