At the beginning of 2009 ENGIE launched Cofely, its new brand for services relating to energy. Operating in around 15 countries, Cofely is the leading European provider in terms of environmental and energy efficiency services. It designs, implements and operates solutions that let companies and communities use energy more effectively and to reduce their environmental impact.
Firm commitments towards guaranteeing energy performance
ENGIE undertakes contractually with its customers (whether companies, local communities, the tertiary sector or industrial customers) to achieve concrete and sustainable energy performance results. The commitments it makes are particularly linked to the level of availability, continuity and service quality of the facilities. The goal is to help customers achieve cost savings in energy.
Developing local, renewable energy
Acknowledged worldwide as a specialist in heating and cooling networks, the Group manages more than 180 such networks internationally, including in Paris, Lisbon, London, Barcelona, Brussels, Monaco and Turin, amongst others.
Buoyed by the search for better environmental performance, this market is undergoing fast expansion, particularly with regard to eco-neighbourhoods. This is a concept which is taking off very rapidly in Europe, where ENGIE is participating in several projects including important ones in the Paris region (Limeil-Brévannes), Amsterdam (Overhoeks), China (Tianjin Binhai) and Qatar (Energy City).
“London 2012” Olympic Games
