Arkinova is a technology hub dedicated to eco-building, bringing together young start-ups, R&D companies, architects and engineers. The Basque Country urban authorities wanted this building to be exemplary: the materials that were used have a low energy and carbon footprint, enabling the structure to be energy positive, suitable to tomorrow’s societal, technical and energy changes, while respecting the environment. Offices are modular and equipped with cutting-edge technologies (3D digital modelling).

SUEZ has pioneered the Command and Control Center, an innovative urban supervision tool that facilitates an enhanced management of the public space by consolidating and analyzing the data generated by a city’s operations: traffic regulation, video-surveillance, street lighting, emergency services, and more. This trailblazing solution is being piloted in the Dijon metropolitan area, and will transform this city with a population of 260,000 into the first smart and connected city of its kind in France.
Faced with growing urbanization and the increasing scarcity of water resources, local authorities are committed to incorporating sustainable development principles into their water management policies. Thanks to its VISIO centers, SUEZ supports local authorities by offering a digital management system for their water and sanitation services.
AQUADVANCED® Urban Drainage is a real-time software solution made up of three modules for the continuous monitoring of the sewerage system, the prevention of flooding, the protection of the natural environment and the optimisation of the existing regulation and treatment infrastructures. These technologies are used in the smart control centres that centralise and analyse the information and the alerts sent by these systems.
SUEZ group, in partnership with the Saint-Etienne municipality, was awarded the “Sustainable and United City” Call for Expression of Interest by the National Agency for Urban Renovation (ANRU) within the framework of the Future Investments Program (PIA). SUEZ is developing a next-generation interoperable, open and scalable digital platform that will facilitate citizens’ access to public data while providing the city with quality information.
