Yann Grynberg is the Program Director responsible for the Smart and Sustainable Building Technologies Program (SSBT) at Energy Research Institute @NTU (ERI@N). He graduated from a French mechanical and electrical engineering school for building and civil works in Paris. He has over 17 years of experience in industry and worked for 10 years in Japan and Singapore for projects related to sustainable construction at the French company Bouygues. During that time, he facilitated, among others, the first 10 storey PPVC (Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction) building in Singapore, over the extension of the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Changi Airport. Since 2015, in ERI@N with the help of an R&D team, his aim is to test and deploy new innovative technologies and processes that allow new and existing buildings to reduce their energy consumption and reach the highest level of green certifications. His research interest also spans over the following topics: modeling and simulation for building design, innovative cooling technologies, and Smart technologies with the aim to design and build Zero Energy Building for tropics.
