AdCF has devoted the 200th issue of its monthly review “Intercommunalités” (May 2015) to local energy policies, within the context of the Energy Transition for Green Growth law, which strengthens urban authorities’ energy and climate skills. Its objective is to support urban authorities in the “deployment of ambitious climate-air-energy actions”. Energy transition, legislative framework for intervention, carbon pricing issues and the role of urban authorities, surveys on territorial climate and energy plans, wind power development, energy insecurity and renovation as well air quality are all addressed in this study and illustrated by concrete examples of projects meeting the territories’ urgent energy transition requirements.
Mozaik is a renovation project of an 18 000-square-metre office building complex, spanning 8 superstructure floors, adaptable and convertible according to occupants’ needs. Well-being, comfort and respect for the environment were at the heart of the implementation of the project.
Studies carried out beforehand helped identify the best equipment and materials for this purpose, and 90% of the waste from the construction site was recovered. Mosaik was selected to take part in the HQE Performance test, which assesses the environmental performance of buildings.
Le smart thermique mutualise les besoins des occupants (bureaux, logements, commerces) et échange les calories des bâtiments. Par exemple, la chaleur dégagée lors de la production de froid pour les commerces est récupérée et utilisée pour produire l’eau chaude des logements et inversement.
Le smart électrique ...
Optimal Solutions is designing and building France’s first French double smart grid in Nanterre. It is an innovative environmental project that promotes local renewable energies and deploys artificial intelligence to optimise the energy consumption of buildings as much as possible.
Smart heating pools the needs of occupants (offices, housings, shops) and exchanges the calories of buildings. For example, the heat released by shops for cooling is recovered and used to produce hot water for homes and vice versa.
The smart power produces part of the electricity necessary for its own operation via self-sufficient photovoltaics and cogeneration.
Massileo is a renewable energy production system designed by Optimal Solutions, a subsidiary of Dalkia (EDF Group). By recovering sea water calories using a warm water loop, this grid is able to simultaneously produce heating, air conditioning and domestic hot water, thanks to heat pumps. This 100% renewable local energy allows Marseille’s housing, offices and shops to trade their calories and to be as much a consumers as a producers of energy. An example of this is the Smartseille eco-district, where Massileo has been operational since 2017.
Le guide pratique de l’ADEME « Enjeux : quelles villes pour demain ? Maîtriser l’étalement urbain et repenser la ville » analyse les répercussions de l’étalement urbain sur les conditions de vie et l’environnement ; et répertorie des exemples de solutions urbaines innovantes pour rendre les villes plus accessibles et durables tout en freinant leur étalement. 10 exemples d’aménagements urbains durables illustrent ce guide, pour une gestion économe de l’espace.
ADEME’s practical handbook « Challenges: the cities of tomorrow? Containing urban sprawl and rethinking the city” analyses the impact of urban sprawl on living conditions and the environment. It also identifies examples of innovative urban solutions to make cities more accessible and sustainable while curbing their sprawl. For an ecological management of space, 10 examples of sustainable urban development are illustrated in this guide.
