Research  & Development

Models of Transition is a program of activities that drives the development, testing and certifying of new energy technologies, eco-sustainable construction materials, and design practices that are an integral part of the emerging decentralized energy economy (DE).

The program makes the case for a whole-systems approach with regard to distributive utility infrastructures, identifying that no one component can be optimized in terms of its efficiency, if it is not considered within the larger context of its implementation.

The Artecoop approach puts new emphasis on the design processes prevalent in industrial design, architecture and urban design, specifically with regard to energy efficiency, energy self-reliance and the ability to function within a decentralized context.

The aesthetics of this ‘new energy economy’ is an important factor in making the implementation of these solutions and designs widespread, attractive and strategically viable.

 Implementation

With regard to the implementation of the technologies, Artecoop operates as a consortium builder, bringing together the proper parties in terms of expertise to take on direct commissions or to participate in competitions, bidding and tenders.
