This hard-stone elementary school is located in Mulhouse in the Alsace region (north-eastern France), near the border with Germany. It is a listed building, since it was built in XXVIII sec as a spinning factory at a time which Mulhouse had an active textile industry and became a school in 1870. It has recently been retrofitted with a project balanced between low energy consumption and heritage preservation, with the availability of a constraint budget.

In recent years the energy paradigm is shifting from big-size centralized power plants to small-medium size distributed generation plants injecting power in a bi-directional power flow grid. For this reason, a new concept called “Smart energy system”, is growing where both physical networks (electricity, natural gas…) and non-physical networks (mobility and citizens/communities) have to interact towards the unique purpose: reduce energy carbon footprint and guarantee an affordable power supply for everyone.
