While mankind’s digital footprint is growing dangerously, there exist simple actions that can be implemented that will very effectively reduce an information system’s ecological and economic footprint while improving its social performance.
France’s ten-year energy strategy (the Programmation Pluriannuelle de l’Énergie, or PPE) was presented on Tuesday, November 27, by the French President, Emmanuel Macron, and the Minister of Ecological Transition, François de Rugy.
The move toward more diverse and more complementary energies also includes renewable electricity. Factored into the ENGIE energy mix is the development of renewable electrical energy.
The project manager is a true orchestrator and, as such, translates customers’ needs into digital solutions. From needs analysis to product delivery, this job requires both technical and managerial skills.
In the context of the energy transition toward a low-carbon economy, ENGIE is seeking to help both its private- and public-sector customers better manage the complexities of energy management. The aim is to bring down their costs, their consumption and their environmental footprint. This is why energy efficiency services are today among the Group’s top priorities for development.
According to the central scenario of the American Energy Agency1, worldwide energy consumption will rise 28% between 2015 and 2040. It has become urgent to reduce and improve our energy consumption. Energy efficiency aims to minimize energy consumption for an equivalent, if not superior, performance. The challenges with which we are confronted are producing more and better, using fewer resources or using the most suitable resource, or better yet, achieving consumption that is greener, more sustainable, more efficient and better spread.
Following an Mediterranean odyssey interrupted by stopovers in 17 ports of call, Energy Observer has berthed in St Malo for wintering, taking a well-earned rest before setting off again to continue its world tour in Northern Europe in the spring. This stop in its home port gives us an opportunity to take another look at the challenge presented by renewable energies in Brittany and to highlight some of the flagship solutions developed by ENGIE in the region.
At a time when the energy landscape is looking less carbon-intensive, natural gas is positioned in the future energy mix as the energy of transition: it is abundant, low carbon and can be a real partner for renewable energies.
Motorized traffic is on the increase, especially in urban areas, resulting in economic and environmental costs relating to the considerable urban density. By connecting road infrastructures to communication technologies and limiting the use of individual means of transport, urban congestion can be reduced.
