Grenoble (France), March 16, 2010 - HOMES¹, a collaborative innovation programme, unveils its website, to provide an open space for sharing information on energy efficiency.
The site (homesprogramme.com) is designed as an interactive white paper dedicated to energy efficiency in buildings. It presents the HOMES programme, its partners, ambitions ans solutions in an original approach, supported by a streamlined, innovative style. Using the latest ans simplest Internet technologies, the site is continuously updated with content from programme partners, and suggest participation to universities, research laboratories and other external contributors.
" The site is the perfect illustration of the HOMES programme's collaborative philosophy, as everyone can add content," explains Didier Pellegrin, HOMES Programme Director. "It's by working together that we will create affordable solutions that are easy to implement and use, leveraging pervasive technologies to achieve the best energy efficiency performance possible."
The HOMES collaborative innovation programme is designed to create solutions for achieving optimal energy performance in all buildings. Created in 2008, the four-year program brings together 13 manufacturers and research organizations led by Schneider Electric, the world leader in energy management. HOMES is supported by the French Agency for Innovation (OSEO).
