The Nomads Foundation, GreenGT SA, Romande Energie SA and Realstone Group have established a consortium to integrate local hydrogen supply into the energy mix of the building industry in France.
The Aurora project, a large-scale project, aims to develop solutions by using local hydrogen to supply energy to the real estate sector. This collaboration will introduce integrated solutions, such as the electrolysis of water, photovoltaics and storage batteries to the existing solution. The project will help to meet heating and electricity needs.
The project is spread over several years and initially plans to model and then install the system in a group of buildings and market solutions using green hydrogen. The implementation phase could then find support from the relevant public institutions.
Aurora includes various innovative aspects in the production, distribution and use of hydrogen, aiming to decarbonise the building stock. The project will combine the partners’ skills in engineering, energy and real estate.
The Nomads Foundation is a private non-profit public utility foundation, offering partners a multidisciplinary co-creation platform. GreenGT is a public limited company, present in Switzerland and France, active in hydrogen engineering and consulting. Romande Energie Group offers numerous sustainable solutions in areas as varied as energy distribution and production, energy services, energy efficiency, and mobility. Realstone Group manages multi-billion real estate assets in Switzerland by planning its investments according to high sustainability and energy efficiency criteria, both in the development of new projects and during the renovation of its real estate stock.
