Ampere Building at La Défense (SOGEPROM)
Location: Paris, France
Owned by the real estate company SOGEPROM, the Ampere Building is a 10-floor office building built in 1985 in the business district La Défense. It is undergoing a complete renovation and modi-fication to become a sustainable construction.
The contribution of the project ELSA comprises an electrical storage out of two Kangoo 2nd life batteries with a total capacity of 32 kWh.
Additionally, the office building will be equipped with
- a heat pump for heat and cold generation of 130 kW,
- a connection to the heat distribution network of La Défense
- solar panels,
- a "Gen 2 Switch” system for the elevator (Otis elevator with a battery) and
- 30 recharging spots for a fleet of EV for employees.
The so-called "Reservoir of Energy” is expected to lower energy costs and the environmental footprint, and to serve as a showcase of the transformation of an existing building into a sustainable one. ELSA’s storage solution is expected to satisfy the most stringent safety and security specifications in such a critical office environment.
