Protecting the planet

« In nature, only species that live in harmony with their environment survive. » Hubert Reeves

Plundering the natural resources

Due to our current patterns of production and consumption our natural resources are over-exploited and our survival depends on destroyed ecosystems.

Environmental pollution

Due to the piling up of our increasingly toxic waste, the air quality, water and soil are subjected to a steady deterioration that turns nature into an open-air landfill site.

Global warming

Due to human activities, each year new temperatures break records and therefore multiply extreme climatic incidents with ever-increasing damages.

Biodiversity devastation

Due to destruction of natural habitats, demographic pressure and intensive farming practices, the 6th largest mass animal extinction since the dinosaurs had occurred.

Circular economy

Understanding that everything produced, consumed and disposed is part of a cycle in which all waste is first reused, then potentially converted or recycled to avoid being buried or incinerated.

‘The polluter pays’ principle

To include in the price of all market activities, health, social and environmental costs and the payment of the carbon tax by all stakeholders.

Reduction of Greenhouse gases emissions (GHG)

Drastically reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, main contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, in transportation, agriculture, housing and manufacturing.

Biodiversity Protection

To move away from the ‘nature/culture’ dualism that makes us alien to the biosphere and to foster organic links with all living ecosystems in order to switch from anthropocentrism to biocentrism.

I invented flywheel energy storage to improve renewable energy production
Energiestro is a French company which was founded in 2001 by Anne and André Gennesseaux, who developed the flywheel energy storage technology. It consists of a prestressed concrete wheel which can store energy at a much lower cost than batteries. Photovoltaic solar energy, which is the cheapest generator of renewable energy, requires a lot of storage. Thanks to an unlimited renewable life-span, the VOSS (flywheel energy storage), aims to improve the self-sufficiency of buildings with solar panels, the storage and evening-out of intermittent renewable energy flows, the supply of energy to remote sites and rural developing regions… Which makes it a perfect choice of storage for big solar plants in desert zones.  

A Villa to preserve the planet without leaving your nest

The etymology of the word ‘ecology’ comes from two Greek words ‘Oikos’ house and ‘Logos’ science. What could be more symbolic than applying the precepts of ecology at home?
This is the focus of this living space whose building materials, as well as items and products used in everyday life, will be selected in order to respect as much as possible the balance of natural ecosystems.
