About Plaine Commune Energie
Plaine Commune Energie is the company assigned to operating the public service for supplying heat to the City of Saint Denis, Stains, Pierrefitte and L’Ile-Saint-Denis, a 100% subsidiary of ENGIE Réseaux, ENGIE Group.
About Saint Denis
Aware of the need for an ecological and social transition, the City of Saint Denis is involved in many areas of the everyday life of its local citizens (poverty, health, housing, air pollution, waste management, mobility, etc.). To make its contribution to international commitments regarding the fight against global warming, Saint-Denis adopted its first Climate Energy Plan in 2015.
Its commitments include control of the energy consumption of municipal buildings, a reduction of the carbon impact on its travel, a contribution to the development of renewable energies and awareness-raising about the climate and energy issues and air quality. With the implementation of this project, the City confirms the desire of the local authority to change to distributing heat produced from renewable energies for all municipal users (social housing, schools, etc.).
