Digital technologies have become an integral part of our lives to the point that we are not only connected but often hyper-connected. The continuous flow of information from more and more sources (e-mails, texts, professional and personal instant messaging, social networks, feeds, etc.) and constant stimulation (often in the form of notifications) make it increasingly difficult to prioritize and prevent us distinguishing what’s important from what’s not. We are constantly distracted by this flow of information which stops us communicating effectively with others and blurs the line between work and private life. How can we remedy the situation in our all-connected world? What are the solutions?
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.
