    This solution allows rainwater to be reused for non-potable use: urban cooling.
    The innovation also lies in rainwater treatment: runoff water is collected and treated through depolluting drains (developed by Veolia) before being stored.

    It is an autonomous, fully automated solution: the cooling demand is controlled by meteorological sensors. The materials and equipment used are available on the market. The innovation lies in the management and monitoring of the system's performance through these UTCI measures.

    The system can be remotely controlled by the user (to change the setpoints or parameters) and requires very little maintenance.

    This solution is intended to be combined with other types of cooling solutions (vegetation,...) to create outdoor spaces.

    It can be integrated into a new space of conviviality at the service of resilience.
