  Mont-Cenis Academy
Name of Project Mont-Cenis Academy
Developer/Manufacturer Jourda et Perraudin (Lyon - France), with Hegger Hegger Schleif (Kassel - Germany)
Project Location Herne Sodingen - Germany
Year Of Commissioning 1999
Sustainable features in brief "Bio-climatic architectural design and active solar technologies: - The ventilation of the buildings inside the glass envolope is achieved by natural or mechanical means. In order to reduce energy consumption in winter and top cool naturally in summer, an air handling system unit with a heat exchange system was installed. - Photovoltaic cells are integrated in the glazing of roof and fa?ade as sunscreens. The semitransparent resin filled glass-glass PV-modules function directly as part of roof-glazing and fa?ade panels. - Component characteristics PV system power 1 MWp Array dimensions 3,184 PV modules; 10,533.52 m2 Visual details: The PV cell area of PV modules varies between 86% and 58%. The space between the single PV cells varies according to the translucent ratio. Inverter:. 569 units Sunny Boy 1500 - 1,500 W nominal power Battery 816 single batteries - total energy output of 1.2 MWh"

Stakeholders' perspectives "- Create a climatic shift inside the glass envelope in the summer and winter. It keeps out wind and rain and creates a garden-like interior with a mild micro-climate similar to that of the Mediterranean. - Control incoming light and shade with no budgetary constraints on the additional costs of the PV system. - The PV modules serve as truly multifunctional building elements. They provide shading, daylighting and electricity production at the same time."
