The mission of the Thermal & Energy Laboratory (LTE) is to carry out applied research projects related to the efficiency of thermal / electrical energy conversion in buildings, the design and optimization of decentralized energy systems.
The facilities of the LTE make it possible to carry out tests on thermal energy conversion equipment (boiler, heat exchangers, ORC machine, heat pump) and to validate research prototypes in the field of organic fluid machine technologies and heat pumps (turbine equipment, compressors, direct evaporation solar collectors, steam generator with organic refrigerant).
Its approach, based on the systemic methodology of optimizing systems that make maximum use of renewable energies and on the development of low-carbon technology solutions, makes it possible to provide a significant response to the problem of energy transition in the building sector and industry.
