France has made a commitment to increase the proportion of electrical energy generated
from renewable energies from 15 to 21% by the year 2010.
The demand for electricity will increase by between 10 and 15% during the same period.
Photovoltaic energy (PV) can be used in very many applications,
and is by far the most promising free electrical energy.
CSTB makes its research means available for use by manufacturers
to develop innovative, reliable and high-performance products,
so as to accompany this progress towards controlling energy expenses.
With the new service, ID+Development, CSTB is offering manufacturers an upstream assistance
and consulting service. The objective is to identify and organize the key elements needed to ensure
recognition of the special features of a product by the technical committees tasked with providing technical
evaluations that are useful in the French market: Technical Assessments, Technical Application Documents,
European Technical Approvals (ETAs) and Technical Experimental Assessments.
With the new service, ID+International, CSTB is offering international companies support
and international coordination to promote the innovative solutions they are bringing to the world
of construction. CSTB is offering its services to manufacturers who strive to obtain
local market “approval” in several countries at the same time.
