They aim to create a demonstrator in just 4 years.

Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) and elm.leblanc are launching the CORENSTOCK Industrial Chair – Life Cycle-Oriented Design & Systematic Approach for Energy Efficiency in Heating System Storage – co-funded equally by the French National Research Agency (ANR) and elm.leblanc. The chair addresses issues posed by the energy and digital transitions by transforming the heating industry, which is energy-intensive by nature. It is intended for the domestic water storage market, which has great potential for innovation. This partnership has an ambitious goal: entirely reshape the design, life cycle, use of the product and its economic operation. Selected from among 12 candidates by ANR for its scientific excellence, the CORENSTOCK industrial chair brings together researchers from different disciplines at IMT schools, in particular from IMT Lille Douai and Mines Saint-Etienne. The chair operates at the crossroads between fundamental research, industrial innovation and higher education.
