Research at the EPFL Solar Energy and Building Physics Laboratory directed by Professor Jean-Louis Scartezzini focuses on energy efficiency and the implementation of renewable energies in buildings and cities.

► Energy savings in buildings and improvement of indoor environment quality and health through:
– Advanced integrated day- and electric lighting systems based on non-imaging optics
– Optimal and adaptive building control
► Optimisation of solar energy conversion systems through nanotechnology and architectural integration
► Smart management of cities thanks to modelling and simulation of complex urban systems
(energy flows, solar potential and other sustainability related factors)

Designing urban energy systems based on the urban climate


As cities grow at an ever-faster pace, concerns about global warming rise and fossil fuels become increasingly scarce, cities will have to adopt more sustainable energy solutions. EPFL researchers have developed a model that can be used
