'Time points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Time for the Planet®. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Time for the Planet<span class="brand">®</span> scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
76 assessments

Submitted to the Scientific Committee : After the evaluations made by our volunteer assessors, innovations with the strongest impact potential are submitted to the Scientific Committee. The managing directors are responsible for the choice.

Submission date June 28, 2022 Founders Christophe FOURCAUD Development location BORDEAUX, France

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

The R' Booster low-carbon solution can reduce the heating bill and carbon footprint of steel-frame buildings by up to 80%. It is 3 times more powerful than photovoltaic.

How is the problem solved?

The R' Booster solution turns the walls of metal buildings into giant radiators. In winter, when it is only 10°C outside, it is possible to recover air at 51°C. This allows to heat in winter, to cool at night in summer, and to dry foodstuffs or materials.

What is the customer target?

The solution is aimed at all owners and users of metal buildings (offices, industrial, commercial, storage, agricultural). That is more than 16 million m2 each year in France alone.

How is this solution different?

The R' Booster solution is more versatile, more efficient and less expensive. Moreover, R' Booster has the International Solar Impulse Label and is protected by 2 patents.
