Infrastructure and energy services leader IDEX, international specialists in the natural resources and renewable energy economy EREN, and ACCENTA, experts in harnessing Artificial Intelligence for low-carbon energy optimisation in buildings, have joined forces to found AÏDEN, a joint venture dedicated to environmental and energy transition for real estate assets.

This joint venture aims to provide property managers, owners, and landlords with turnkey low-carbon thermal systems. The building sector is one of the biggest energy-consuming and CO2-emitting industries, and a major lever in the green transition movement. In France, the building sector consumes 45% of all energy used, and generates 27% of all CO2 emissions*.

Well aware of the environmental factors at stake and the opportunity that thermal renovations in the building sector represent, AÏDEN draws on the disruptive technology developed by ACCENTA to maximise use of low-carbon energy.

Backed by EREN’s financial clout and IDEX’s industry expertise, this technology allows AÏDEN to offer a unique heating/air-conditioning system that combines the benefits of seasonal geothermal energy storage with the power of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning.

Thanks to this innovative approach, AÏDEN’s solutions trap renewable heat and heat recovered from air-conditioning systems in the summer, storing and recycling it in the winter to heat buildings.

Likewise, cold is captured in the winter, before being stored and reused in the summer to cool buildings down. By prioritising renewable resources, AÏDEN is able to offer thermal solutions at an ultra-competitive price compared to those that use fossil fuels and traditional insulation renovation.

ACCENTA’s technology is game-changing in terms of lowering energy consumption and carbon emissions. Paired with IDEX’s expertise in overseeing and supplying energy services, this is a ground-breaking solution for property owners and managers seeking to reduce their assets’ carbon footprint.
