Paris, December 5, 2022

SIMI : The Elithis Group announces
15 projects of residential or mixed-use towers with positive energy allowing zero energy bills for the inhabitants!

Elithis announces 15 positive energy projects for 2023: from the first quarter of 2023 with 2 building site deliveries in Dijon and Saint-Etienne and four building site launches in Brest, Mulhouse, Nancy and Le Havre. Other projects will follow, notably in Bordeaux, Aubervilliers and Clermont-Ferrand.

Elithis Immobilier and Elithis Solutions teams will be present at the SIMI (Salon de l’Immobilier d’entreprise) which will have for theme this year “Make tomorrow the most beautiful place to live” at the Palais des Congrès of Paris from December 6th to 8th 2022.

Making tomorrow the most beautiful but also the best place to live is in the DNA of Elithis. Pioneer and leader in positive energy, Elithis has designed the first positive energy buildings in the world for housing and offices. 30 years ahead of the European regulation on carbon emissions, the Elithis positive energy towers produce more energy than they consume, allowing

1. increase the purchasing power of households by erasing their energy bills with a gain between 2000 and 3000 €/year for an average French household(source: Service des données et études statistiques & Commission de régulation de l’énergie)
2. to free owners and tenants from dependence on fossil fuels.

In a context where households and companies are confronted with the triple shock of climate, energy and economy, the rapid development of Elithis towers projects is an efficient answer to :

Reduce both climate impact and energy bills:
o Green energy production covering the needs of the building and all its inhabitants;
o Energy support for residents through the digital coach;
Reconciling energy sobriety, well-being and living comfort:
o No longer having to choose between living comfort and the end of the month, with bioclimatic buildings designed to give users the means to
live better by spending less (e.g.: average temperature of 22° in winter recorded over the last 4 years of heating of the Elithis Danube Tower in
o Bright living spaces with unobstructed views;
o A social heart at the top of the towers designed as a place for exchange and sharing.
Making ecology and economy rhyme:
o Towers built at standard construction costs;
o A limitation of the artificialization of soils associated with the reduction of the use of natural resources;
