The E2VENT system that we will develop is an external thermal refurbishment solution with external cladding and air cavity (fig.1).   The distinctive feature of this system is the Smart Modular Heat Recovery Unit allowing us to recover energy from the extracted air while performing the air renewal using double flux heat exchanger in the air cavity (fig.2).
