C2N among the laureates of the CNRS Bas Carbone call for projects

The aim of this call for proposals is to support emerging initiatives to reduce the energy footprint of laboratories, as well as to strengthen existing initiatives.1
Among the 32 projects selected, C2N's project is part of a collective approach to energy saving. In 2021-22, as part of the completion of the building's real-estate operation, an energy-saving mode was put into service in C2N's clean room (3,000 m2), with the company AXIMA/EQUANS and a C2N team. Thanks to this call for projects, our team will be able to extend this economical mode to experimental rooms outside the clean room, while maintaining the environmental parameters that are essential for carrying out experiments.

People involved in the project :

    - Sophie Bouchoule (CNRS researcher, involved in C2N's eco-energies actions around the CLIM), project leader of the proposal submitted to the AAP BAS CARBONE 2023 :
    - Aristide Lemaitre (CNRS researcher, involved in C2N's fossil fuel eco-energy initiatives in general)
    - Alain Clément (logistics and infrastructure manager)

With the support of :

    - Antoine Caselles, Laoges Thaoes (C2N Logistics and Infrastructure Department, in charge of air conditioning and technical management of the air conditioning system)
    - Guy Aubin, Olivier Krebs, Sébastien Sauvage, Delphine Morini, Anatole Lupu, Kamel Bencheikh, Fabrice Pardo, Nicolas Zérounian, Navy Yam, Thibaut Devolder, Jean-Michel Manceau, Hervé Aubin, Gilles Patriarche, heads of laboratories involved in the "BAS Carbone 2023" project.
