Après le bâtiment basse consommation ou passif, la prochaine étape est le bâtiment producteur d’énergie renouvelable. Le développement des bâtiments à énergie positive, obligatoires à partir de 2020, pose la question de la valorisation de l’énergie – électricité, chaleur ou froid – qu’ils produisent en excédent. Si le modèle de collecte d’électricité renouvelable produite par les bâtiments existe déjà (solaire photovoltaïque), cela reste à développer avec les réseaux de chaleur et de froid.
