The CIne building: self-generation and energy independence with renewable energy

Spanish renewable technologies company Norvento has unveiled its Norvento Energy Innovation Centre (CIne), one of the most advanced in terms of self-generation and energy independence by means of renewable energy. Situated in Lugo, CIne is a zero-energy building, completely self-sufficient using renewable sources, that runs with no connection to the power grid thanks to the integration of a battery system to store electricity, among other solutions. Covering a surface area of over 4,000 m2, this building is the result of decades of R&D+i undertaken by Norvento and is the greatest exponent of the technological solutions it offers the market. Its technology and design avoid the emission of over 160 tonnes of greenhouse gases per year.

CIne represents the convergence of Norvento’s more than 35 years of experience in the field of renewable energy. A new, 100% renewable head office, completely independent, conceived as a work and testing centre, capable of accommodating 200 workers. In addition, it is the company’s main wind farm operation and monitoring centre. CIne is a clear example of how Norvento’s technology can help the industrial sector fully equip itself for self-supply and self-management via renewables.

It has taken more than six years to turn this project into a reality, from its design to its construction, involving a total investment of €12m for Norvento. Read more…
