LOCIE : Laboratoire optimisation de la conception et ingénierie de l'environnement

Sustainable Energy and Building

The LOCIE develops multidisciplinary research around an object : the building in its environment (sustainable, stable, efficient, energy collecting/producer, comfortable and healthy), to meet the challenges of the energy and environmental transitions. The research is declined according to 3 themes :

BASE  - SustAinable Building: Structure and Envelope

BASE studies building elements, to understand and control the thermal, mechanical, hydric responses of envelope and structural elements of new or existing buildings. It also focuses on the integration of non-conventional and multifunctional materials and components.

STEP - Energy SysTEms and Processes

STEP focuses on the study of systems that meet the needs of sustainable buildings. It designs, models, evaluates and optimizes innovative energy and air treatment processes: exchangers, storage systems, solar components, particulate filtration.

SITE - Systems and buildings Integrated inTo the city and the urban Environment

SITE focuses on the issues of resource management and energy vectors at the scale of a territory. It characterizes, models and optimizes the overall performance of buildings, or building fleets, in their environment, and their interactions via energy networks.


1 Central research axis
70 people

The LOCIE laboratory is a joint research unit CNRS - Université Savoie Mont Blanc which focuses its research activities on a central axis "sustainable energy and building", within the INES - Institut National de l'Energie Solaire.
The unit employs 70 people: researchers, technical and administrative staff, doctoral and post-doctoral students.
