In terms of numeric innovation, it’s been a few years since we hear a lot about “blockchain” and its applications. Today, in Urban ChroniclesTM, you will learn more about it, and especially what opportunities it gives to the ecological transition of our cities.
What if work-related pathologies (such as burn-out, a major personal and professional crisis of the 21st century, often unacknowledged, hidden or even minimized in our societies) find their source, and finally their solutions in the current work organization and associated mobility? Let’s take a look at the phenomenon !
From now on till 2030, 195 countries who signed 17 sustainable development goals (SDG) are mobilizing for the planet in finding sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint.
What roles do the actors of the cities of tomorrow embody, in order to reach these objectives ?
For this interview, Patrick Nossent, Certivéa’s president and Ella Etienne-Denoy, General director and associates of Green Soluce, spoke to Chroniques Urbaines to warn on the necessity of urban development projects to take into their field of action the SDGs decided by the UN.
In order to help you achieve your development goals this year, and for them to be more sustainable on the long run, Green Soluce mobilizes and provides you with its 4 Hubs of expertise: – Advisory ; – Learning; – Sustainable Finance; – Content.
They aim to give you answers to your internal and external organizational challenges, thanks to their expertise on the actors of the real estate and the city. Green Soluce allows companies to be strategic in their social responsibility, by giving answers to the complexity of the environmental transition of our societies.
The transition to “service-oriented” mobility is one of the major developments in mobility and transport at work nowadays. The MaaS (Mobility as a Service), which CEREMA defines as “an integrated system offering information, reservation, purchase and validation, for the widest possible range of mobility services”, is part of this transition. There are now about fifteen MaaS applications in Europe, a growing phenomenon, particularly in large urban areas. But beyond the concept, what reality can the MaaS cover in the field?
To find out more, Chroniques Urbaines met Denis Rambaud, Vice-President of Mulhouse Alsace Agglomération in charge of transport and mobility, who shared with us his feedback on the Mobility Account, a pioneering MaaS initiative in France launched in 2018.
The transport strike at the end of 2019 led to the emergence of alternatives to the car and the usual means of transport, and initiatives are multiplying to ensure that people can travel from home to work. This strike allows us to question our resilience in the face of the transport stoppage and to bring out new low-carbon solutions, which ones?
Created in 2011, BePark allows users to temporarily rent a parking space in one of the car parks of its network, and let car park owners register theirs on an online platform. Pooling, digitizing, transitioning to a use economy… this week, Julien Vandeleene, founder of BePark, presents the company’s vision for tomorrow’s urban mobility.
How to use the heat released by data centres or by an incineration plant? Or how to reuse the heat produced in the tunnels of the metro?
All these energies exist but are often lost because they are not used: we speak of fatal energy. However, according to ADEME, the national industrial fatal heat pool alone amounts to 109.5 TWh, or 36% of industrial fuel consumption.
For this new article from season 10 of the Urban Chronicles dedicated to mobility, we invite you to discover three good practices that illustrate our vision of the sustainable city applied to mobility.
At Green Soluce, we imagine the city of tomorrow from a prism that is articulated around three essential values: frugality, inclusion and resilience. To do this, we draw on ideas and approaches that meet these commitments.
The 2017 ADEME study on the place of the electric vehicle in the ecological transition in France shows that these cars could have more advantages by developing services to the electric system ( “vehicle-to-grid” or V2G). What does this system consist of? How can it fit into the building? Is there a synergy between local energy production, electricity storage and buildings? Quick inventory of fixtures.
