Heating and cooling networks are a key factor in the decarbonisation of enterprises and local authorities.
Heating networks: an important lever in the energy transition
In France, 47% of directly consumed energy is for heating, of which only 5% was produced by heating networks in 2019. But these solutions have reduced their carbon footprint by 56% in 10 years.
Unlike individual systems, these networks can use renewable energies on a massive scale, which enable the latter to be the largest component of their energy mix. According to survey conducted by the French State Syndicate of Urban Heating and Air Conditioning in 2021, in France, the share of renewable and recovered energies in this mix has increased from 30% to 60% in 10 years.
As a champion of the energy transition, ENGIE has placed heating networks at the very heart of its strategy, because they can decarbonise its customers' infrastructures. ENGIE has also set itself the target of increasing the share of renewable energies in the energy mix that supplies them. Targets: 75% in 2030 and 100% in 2050.
Cooling networks: a solution for resilience in the face of global warming
As global warming continues, cold, which was originally a comfort energy, has become essential to making our cities resilient. In the years to come, the demand for air conditioning will increase three-fold. As the world’s number 1 in cooling networks, ENGIE is already one step ahead of this change, offering its customers optimal, reliable and sustainable solutions: a 50% rise in the energy efficiency of our customers’ installations, a 50% decrease in coolant fluid leaks and a 50% cut in greenhouse gas emissions compared with conventional systems.
