Eco Districts

The environmental footprint that stems from our habitat and from human activities at large forces us to increasingly improve and share functions and resources at the level of a group of buildings, a district or an economic and industrial activity zone.

Adopting a global multi-factorial approach taking helps reduce the environmental impact of urban projects. These include mobility, heating and cooling grids, management of public lighting, complementary usage, excessive energy requirements, energy recovery, renewable energy sources, and co-generation.

Tractebel utilises all its skills to analyse these projects and incorporate them as far as possible into the Smart Grids and Smart Cities concepts.

This global approach allows us to think about the foundations of the “City of the Future” and to anticipate model changes.
