Where innovation & architecture merge with sustainability
Comfortable homes that produce green energy and provide real year-round autonomy.
Wood frame modular home
Modular construction meets the best energy efficiency and comfort. Each step is monitored: concept and implementation of engineering solutions, material sourcing, building conditions – conscientious of grey energy-, manufacturing lead-time and purchase price security. Precast modules are designed to deliver tailor made turn key homes within short and controlled lead-times.
Atome’s unique combination deliver a complete autonomous solution. Patented solar panels combined to an optimal alignment with the sun produce maximum solar energy harvest. Salt water batteries stock the energy produced during daylight and provide energy under low supply conditions. To ensure comfort, the home remains connected to the grid, thus energy surplus may be redistributed and gainful...
Built into community energy grids, the mechanisms communicate and interact to enhance comfort for the inhabitants. The interface collects and analyses real time data. A mobile tool informs users of their consumption and the impact that has on their resources, then creates reports for the users to analyse and adapt their consumption to save on running costs.
Linking houses together at a neighbourhood or housing project level allows to mutualise energy production and optimise energy storing capacity. Priorities towards consumption - 1: House production, 2: Mini grid, 3: Backup (energy supplier) -, brings us closer to a mini grid: an autonomous power grid which is independent from the backup energy supplier. On the other hand, staying connected to the backup allows the owner to become a power supplier and thus, redeem its shares.
Environmentally sound choice
Atome’s sound design process considers grey energy production and the weathering of the house. That is why renewable and recyclable materials are used in the construction, reducing global energy consumption, and low CO2 emissions are created through an Atome home energy production process. Atome supports local economy using quality products from environmentally sound source materials and eco-friendly, short supply chains. Moreover, Atome is involved with a non-profit association for education and the preservation of the environment and biodiversity.
A vision for the future
The cumulation of Atome homes will create neighbourhoods contributing and participating in the energy transition. An opportunity to transform neighbourhoods into green resource micro grids, creating community energy grids in which each Atome home's owner is a shareholder.
Energy efficiency and consumption
The alignment and architectural design of Atome homes minimizes shadows cast for instance -, as well as the number and layout of photovoltaic panels, have direct impact on the energy production capacity. High efficiency insulation ensures a strong protection capacity against outside temperature variations in order to maintain a stable temperature inside.
The power generation of an Atome homes is planned based on the average household’s needs, without compromising on modern living comforts.
Atome strives to reduce the grey energy produced building houses and commits to changing the future of families, turning their homes into power generators injecting the surplus energy produced into the local grid (energy supplier), free green energy. However, the greenest energy being the energy not used, each of us has responsibility to personally get involved to alter our daily energy consumption and reduce, more and more every day, our impact on the environment.
