The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets

The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets

In July 2018, WWF France published a study entitled “The Urban Climate Challenge: Getting French cities on board with the Paris Agreement targets”.

The study, a collaborative project with EcoAct, highlights the responsibility of French cities in terms of climate change, their commitment to this front, and proposes local targets, inspired by the Paris Agreement, for France’s ten largest cities.

The Control and Command Center, a unique tool for urban supervision and operation

The Control and Command Center, a unique tool for urban supervision and operation

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.

Digital Saint-Etienne, a digital platform for an urban data management

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.

ELECTRIFIC – Smart electromobility

ELECTRIFIC – Smart electromobility

ELECTRIFIC seeks to develop new technologies to ensure that recharge cycles adapt to network capacity while increasing the use of renewable energies.

The project aims to provide suggestions for drivers on how to recharge their vehicles for an even greater impact on the electricity grid.

This requires collecting network data (power quality), charging station data (energy availability, share of renewable energy), charging plans, battery status and, finally, driver needs.

Optimising the local energy mix in planning and development

Optimising the local energy mix in planning and development

Territories are at the heart of energy and ecological transition. While urban planning and development actors have numerous tools at their disposal to guide their energy choices, they may have difficulties connecting them and putting them into practice to meet the objectives set out in the Energy Transition Law  for Green Growth and the Climate Plan. Sharing this observation, ADEME and GRDF wanted to work on an approach aimed at strengthening the complementarity of energies and networks.

Paradis (“Heaven”) School renovation

Paradis (“Heaven”) School renovation

The Paradis School renovation is set within the framework of the Paris climate strategy (30% reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions) and the most extensive energy renovation plan conducted in France. The objective is to renovate 100 schools (which account for 25% of Paris’ real estate) within 2 years.
After completing a thermal diagnosis for each school, a strategy was put in place for optimal thermal comfort while limiting heat loss and renovation costs.

Launching of the new research project Quartier E+C-: Positive and low-carbon energy development operations

Launching of the new research project Quartier E+C-: Positive and low-carbon energy development operations

The consortium federating the CSTB, Elioth, l’Alliance HQE-GBC, Efficacity, Effinergie, Certivéa, l’Association BBCA and Atlantech recently won the call for research projects during ADEME’s 4th edition of: «Towards responsible buildings before 2020».

 

Quartier E+C-, the winning project, aims to develop and test a carbon energy assessment method at the neighbourhood level.

 

The project will revolve around three stages:
