How Cities are Dealing with Extreme Energy Issues

For decades, the world of energy has developed around fairly stable chains of actors within which the roles were clear and well distributed. In recent years, cities and local authorities have tried to invite themselves among the historical actors.

Never before have we needed to see all energy consumers change their habits, become more sober, more energy-conscious, and we have never been more aware of the difficulties involved in engaging consumers in this transformation.

The energy transition can be conceived as a catch-all concept in which all changes in the energy mix, energy systems and regulations are grouped together.


The Energy Actors Should Do More to Save Our Planet

Every day, we become more aware of the speed at which the climate is disturbed, the depth of the disturbances and the progressively irreversible nature of the latter. And we understand that the energy community will be a strong contributor to the fight against this climate change. Almost all energy stakeholders have clearly identified it as an essential part of their agenda.
