The digital race is on in capitals across Europe, and France is determined to take the lead. Île-de-France, the larger Paris region, has a clear goal: become the first truly connected region and leader in the use of digital solutions to become The smart region. To achieve this, the Île-de-France Regional Council entrusted ENGIE with the creation of an unprecedented solution: Ile-de-France Smart Services, an advanced territorial data, 3D modeling, and service platform.
To support the Île-de-France region’s data innovation goals, ENGIE tapped its BETTER Places program. In consortium with subsidiaries Siradel and ENGIE Ineo, ENGIE was tasked with designing, implementing, and supporting a cutting-edge tool for optimizing the region’s data. The first of its scale in France, Ile-de-France Smart Services has several core functionalities: It’s a data aggregator and analyzer fed by various private and public sources, a 3D “digital twin” of the region allowing for visualization of current projects and efficient planning for future ones, and a smart service platform co-built with various local stakeholders and residents.
Thanks to the Ile-de-France Smart Services platform, more than 50 services will be developed in the coming years, including My Solar Potential which accurately predicts the solar deposit of each roofs of the region, Smart Work, which shows an interactive map to find the smart work space that suits Île-de-France workers best, and more.
