MULTIFUNCTIONAL ROOF EDGE (MRE)

What is the MRE?

The Anerdgy MRE finally solves the eternal problem facing building owners of having to install renewable energy on their buildings AND remaining competitive, by providing an all-in-one product for flat rooftops that benefits from the synergies of combining renewable energy with key building functions and attractive design features. This reduces project costs and create space for other exciting value-producing installations such as greening and terracing.

Technology development stage

The technology is currently in the commercialisation phase, following a successful pilot project in 2017, in which an MRE prototype was installed on a building in Berlin - and shown to operate well in a relevant environment. Technological improvements are currently being made to the design, which will then be demonstrated in pilot projects in 2018 and 2019. We plan to be ready for sales in 2020.

We are looking for partners for demonstration projects at high-profile locations within Europe. Get in touch here:

Product types

A single MRE module has a width of 2 m. The modules are placed along the roof edge and can cover either one, two, three or all edges, depending on the requirements and layout of the rooftop. The MRE is generally suited to buildings with heights of at least 10 m with flat rooftops or with a slope of less than 15 degrees. The field of application therefore stretches from residential buildings (multi-story houses, apartment blocks, hotels) to office buildings (office blocks, schools, hospitals) and industrial buildings (factories, shops, warehouses, exhibition halls, airports).

MAIN COMPONENTS OF THE MRE

The integrated safety, building and lifestyle functions of the MRE provides you with an all-in-one solution and reduces your project costs and planning time by only requiring one supplier.

INTEGRATED SAFETY FUNCTIONS

Lightning protection

Safety rail

Roof edge and facade protection

OPTIONAL BUILDING FUNCTIONS

Space for air conditioning / ventilation

Weather station

Rain water storage

Building maintenance unit

Anti-collision lights

Video / surveillance

OPTIONAL LIFESTYLE FUNCTIONS

Bee / insect housing

Antenna hosting

The individual design options allow you to visually integrate the MRE into your building at the design and planning phase. The positioning of the system at the roof edge frees up space on the rooftop for countless design possibilities.

DESIGN POSSIBILITIES ENABLED BY MRE

Attica floor level

Urban farming

Terrace

Roof greening

Facade greening connection

Space for other installations

DESIGN OPTIONS

Visual integration

Colouring

Illumination

The MRE delivers your building with reliable renewable energy at a high rate of return.

RENEWABLE ENERGY

The solar radiation is used on the front and rear MRE surface directions to generate solar electricity as well as optional solar heat.

If the wind turbine is integrated, the natural wind energy on the façade edge is accelerated by a factor of 1.5 using a venturi duct, leading to an increased power of 3.4 times. The kinetic energy of the wind in the duct is converted to electricity via the integrated wind turbine rotor and generator resulting in highly effective energy generation on the roof edge.
