MERUBBI Methods of Exploitation of the Useful Resources of the Bioclimatic Building in its Block (2014-2018)

Project coordinator: EDF R&D.
Funding: ANR in the context of the Programme Sustainable Cities and buildings.
Partners:, CERMA - Methodological Architecture Research Centre (architectural and urban atmospheres), ENSA Grenoble, UMR CNRS 1563 «Architectural and Urban Atmospheres», CETHIL – INSA Lyon, ENSA Versailles, ENSAS.

The main objective of the MERUBBI project is to develop a New buildings design methodology which would be adapted to the requirements of the designers and would be intended to integrate the issue of the environment-friendly resource development. The aim is to combine as effectively as possible the qualities of the isolation principles and the bioclimatic principles to anticipate compositions of BEPOS that go beyond a BBC completed by photovoltaics. The concerned environment resources are the sun, the celestial dome and the outside air. La méthodologie tient compte de la dimension urbaine en traitant le cas de l’insertion du bâtiment à concevoir dans son îlot. The methodology must enable to estimate the effects of surrounding buildings on the building to design, and conversely the effects of the new building on the surrounding ones. It’s based on multi-criteria optimization methods that take into account the energy saving, economical and regulatory dimensions. The energy simulations integrate the urban microclimate along with a detailed description of the radiative flux (short and long wave radiation) between each building and its environment. The whole work must be compiled into a modeling platform intended for a great number of users (developers, designers, architects, local governments, ...). The first version of this Research platform will be open, complete, long-term and reserved for expert users.
