ARMINES' contribution to Shine

ARMINES-IA works on original ICT-based solutions for energy efficiency during several years now. Its area of expertise fits well with the need of the Shine project and concerns experimental modeling, adaptive control and building performance diagnosis for energy efficiency improvement.

In this context, different approaches related to the data-driven approaches combined with dynamic thermal simulation; behavioral analysis and energy efficiency improvements have been already developed.

Our main works will consist in installing smart-meterings, analyzing the energy performance of the Damrémont Tower, property of Habitat du Littoral and exploring fast and efficient methods for energy performance evaluation and Aided decision tools for Renovation strategies.

In these aims, IA and HdL will develop a strong partnership, and will share their experience with other partners in UK and Belgium.

"ARMINES and Habitat du Littoral will develop a strong partnership, and will share their experience with other partners in UK and Belgium."

Presentation of the organisation

ARMINES is a private non-profit research and technological organisation (RTO), funded in 1967, having common research centers with the Ecoles des Mines gathering public and private personnel and means, to collaborate on an arms lengths basis and perform research contractual activities and academic research training. These common research centers are Joint Research Units. ARMINES having in addition, the duty to manage research contractual activities and the related intellectual property rights and obligations. As of January 1st, 2017, the Ecoles des Mines Albi-Carmaux (Mines Albi-Carmaux), Mines Alès, Mines Douai (IMT Lille Douai), Mines Nantes (IMT Atlantique) and Mines Saint-Etienne have been merged in the Institut Mines-Telecom (IMT) with the transfer of the above mentioned convention with ARMINES.  

Institut Mines Télécom (IMT) is a public institution dedicated to higher education, research and innovation in engineering and digital technologies. The institution is under the authority of the Minister for Industry and Electronic Communication. Always attentive to the economic world, it combines strong academic legitimacy, close corporate relations and a unique focus on 4 key transformations of the 21st century in Digital Technologies, Energy, Ecology and Production. Its activities are conducted in ten Mines and Télécom graduate schools. Mines Douai and Télécom Lille merged on 1 January 2017 to create IMT Lille Douai, the first engineering school north of Paris, to educate future engineers, whether general engineers or digital experts. Every year IMT Lille Douai, an IMT graduate school, and the Université de Lille award diplomas to more than 500 talented engineers, trained to anticipate economic and societal progress.
