Themes & platforms

Volt-Age is built on three themes with three connective platforms.


Creating a smart, sustainable and healthy built environment

Skyscrapers, houses, walkways, roads and parks — they're all a part of the built environment. Volt-Age researchers are working toward decarbonization through sustainable architecture and by designing structures that generate more (renewable) energy than they use.
