Development of New Project Models
The SIE team is firmly committed to innovative change and anticipation, through the implementation of new project models, whether economic, legal or technical.
It is important to analyze feedback constantly and take inventory, following which it is necessary to adjust the models for optimization and better results.
When entirely new models are developed, they are tested under full operation conditions and then generalized whenever the results are convincing. For instance, they may result from technological choices which lead to specific implementations or operating modes.
Prior to starting any project, the issue of selecting the implementation model is systematically tackled.
Research & Development
SIE aims to coordinate R&D activities with a view to improving its development capacities and its quality, especially environmental. Activities are generally carried out by university laboratories capable of performing model simulations and proposing predictive factors to SIE, regarding issues such as performance, boundary conditions, costs, etc.
In this respect, specific partnerships are being explored.
SIE's objective is to provide itself with the means over the long term in order to develop new models, and thus create new services that match its lines of work, commercial orientations, and also in terms of sustainable development.
Watch & Innovation
SIE aims to maintain a state-of-the-art know-how and to gain an up-to-date perspective on trends and best practices in energy efficiency projects in order to offer innovative and constantly improved solutions to its clients. For this purpose, the Company supports activities, both in-house and in cooperation with energy companies : savoir-faire à l’état de l’art et à disposer d’une vue actualisée sur les tendances et meilleures pratiques des projets d’efficacité énergétique pour pouvoir proposer des solutions innovantes et sans cesse améliorées à ses clients. Pour cela, elle prend en charge des activités, en interne ou bien en coopération avec des entreprises de la filière :
- International technological and regulatory watch,to improve its knowledge and the range of solutions proposed to clients ;
- Design of new techno-economic models of projects, including new technologies, and their demonstration in real-life conditions with clients or partners.
As a Super ESCO ESCO, SIE will provide the sector's stakeholders with its technical capacities, and possibly financial support to promote innovation and the demonstration of new models of which it will assess the impacts and feasibility, prior to disseminating the lessons learned to the whole ecosystem.
