Smart Grids Experience: Cofely Ineo is currently testing the first smart grid for an entire business park

Led by Cofely Ineo, the Smart Grids Experience is designed to test full-scale smart grids. Installed on a business park in Toulouse, this smart grid provides a backbone for the interconnection of energy consuming installations, energy generating plants (including 300kWp from solar panels and 60kW from wind turbines) and energy storage to achieve the optimum balance between power generation and consumption in real time.

Optimizing life as a community in nicer and safer surroundings

A sustainable city is a secure city that provides a better quality of life through the diversity of its communities, its secure public spaces, the architectural quality of its buildings, and the urban presence of nature and community facilities, all of which contribute to the shared living experience.
