Incorporated in June 2009, Fondation 3E (Éco-Efficacité Énergétique) is a charitable organisation. Its activities seek to increase energy literacy. Lowering energy demand and increasing the efficiency of its use will reduce the impact of its production and consumption on the planet’s ecosystems.
Its programs are principally focused on increasing the energy numeracy and literacy of future graduates. Its activities also seek to foster the integration of urban planning, architecture and engineering and multi-disciplinary approaches to the task of designing built environments that augment their resiliency, and reduce their energy and material budgets as well as environmental signatures.
