Identification

Multifunctional Roof Edge enable to actively use the roof edge area and thus generate added value for the building.

Thanks to MRE, the energy turnaround at flat roof building can finally be given a positive image across the board and thus also be implemented quite voluntarily so as no longer be depending on feed-in tariffs and economic support measures. The objective of the MRE is to create added value over individual solutions through the set of product features – multifunctionality, design options and renewable energy. At the same time it generates good economic efficiency for each application in terms of investment costs (often crucial in the construction phase of the building) and to reduce the overall life cycle costs of the building. The disruptive product for flat rooftops provides an all-in-one product that benefits from the synergies of combining key building functions and attractive design features with renewable energy generation.

Implementation Stories

Multifunctional Roof Edge (MRE) by ANERDGY
Implemented by Anerdgy in Voreppe (France) in 2020

Alpes Isère Habitat commissioned Anerdgy to use its Solution on a building in Voreppe under the umbrella of a H2020 project called Zero plus. The project carried out from 2015 to 2020 had the aim to welcome the first social housing building in France which is zero plus energy. Besides MRE 8-module implementation, the other photovoltaic and technical elements on the inner part of the roof were installed which extended the roof usage in terms of functionality and energy generation.

Result

A peak module capacity 10 kw with minimum space lost on the roof
