Accelerating energy and urban transition


Today and particularly in the era of COVID, value chains and economic models are changing. It’s time to reconstruct, change our way of thinking to be more agile, more sustainable, and more pertinent, all the while challenging our modes of conception, development and production. Thanks to the hybridisation of our expertise, JUNIA is positioned to be an educational leader in transitional engineering – creating a desirable future.

Energy and urban transitions

Environmental protection and combating climate change are at the heart of current and future policy. The urban level is particularly important due to its rapid growth and high population density. Big cities already contain 50% of the global population within just 2% of the earth’s surface and concentrate 80% of global wealth.

The role of research

Research conducted in JUNIA’s laboratories focuses on better energy management at the scale of a building, a neighborhood, or a region and improving comfort within smart buildings which are more economic, less pollutant, and more resilient. JUNIA’s main academic buildings, located on the campus of Lille Catholic University, are itself a demonstrator of smart building networks and acts as a living laboratory for inventing new approaches to working, traveling, and living together.

Cities in transition

Located on JUNIA’s campus, the city of tomorrow and energy transition demonstrator includes a smart building (with the JUNIA HEI building) and a smart grid (solar power system with battery storage and electric vehicle recharging stations.

This demonstrator incorporates two European projects: Life MaPerEn and Ebalance+, both designed to improve the energy performance of buildings by studying consumption but also by working on intelligent production technology.

Student projects

Accelerating energy transition

JUNIA graduate school of science and engineering trains future engineers to respond to current and future ecological challenges. This goal is met through education, but also through hands-on learning projects. Students take part in diverse group work opportunities on varied themes throughout their studies.

These projects are an opportunity for students to pursue their passions. Research on improving processes, products, methods, or even proposing solutions to a specific problem, students work to rise to the current and future challenges of our society.
