Historically, the Brittany region in northern France has produced just 10% of the energy it consumes. But the Kergrid project is changing all that. As France’s first smart-grid ready office building, Kergrid is showing France and the world how buildings can support some of their own energy needs through a combination of on-site renewable electricity generation, storage, and energy management technology.
Kergrid is able to temporarily "disappear" from the grid during peak periods. When other buildings start to follow suit, it will help pave the way toward a more sustainable, energy independent Brittany and a greener future for all.
