EREN’s activities in the energy sector are founded on the conviction that the answer to today’s and tomorrow’s energy challenges lies in an optimised management of resources, as well as in the promotion of alternative energy consumption and generation methods.
REGULATING ENERGY DEMAND
As well as being an independent generator of power from renewable sources in several countries, EREN Groupe invests in innovative solutions to save energy. Tools to prevent costly and polluting consumption at peak times are reliable, effective and readily available: EREN Industries strives to implement these solutions for all consumers.
Through its subsidiary Voltalis EI, EREN Industries promotes and participates in the development of innovative technology to better regulate energy demand by installing a proprietary box. This technology serves to modulate and reduce residential and commercial customers’ electricity consumption.

COLD STORAGE : SAVING POTENTIAL ON UNTAPPED ENERGY
Cooling is one of the biggest sources of electricity consumption in the world. The level of equipment and climate change increase the need for cooling year on year. This varies considerably according to the time of day and the season but also the use (hotel, hospital, mall, theatre, manufacturing industries, data centres, etc.). Standard refrigeration systems are made to be big enough to cover peaks in consumption that represent on average just 3% of the time. With cold storage, it is possible to substantially reduce the size of conventional refrigeration installations.
As a result, optimising cold management constitutes a central theme for industries, companies in the tertiary sector and public stakeholders. Through its two specialised subsidiaries, FAFCO and CRYOGEL, EREN Industries is at the heart of modernising thermal management installations. The proven performance of the cold storage technology developed by FAFCO and CRYOGEL means it can cover the peaks in demand and thus reduce energy bills. These operating cost savings also represent a major impact on the environment (noise, cooling water, vibrations, overall dimensions), and, as a result, on greenhouse gas emissions.
AN INNOVATING SOLUTION FOR COLD STORAGE
FAFCO is a company that was created in 1981, and first developed solar power and heat pump solutions, before moving on to thermal energy storage. Since then, FAFCO has become an expert in cold storage solutions with its ICEBAT accumulators that meet the air conditioning and refrigeration needs of manufacturers.

A TECHNOLOGY FOR LARGE SCALE COOLING
Cryogel is a French company founded in 1986. It invented the encapsulated cold storage system, which is the most reliable cold storage solution for large-scale air conditioning systems (“district cooling”), public infrastructure and also for the specific needs of many industries.
