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.
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.
Urban areas are faced with climate challenges which have significant impacts, particularly on the health of users, the economy and real estate assets. What are some of these challenges?
The French Social Security Institution (in French: Sécurité Sociale) is divided into five branches: Disease, Accidents at Work, Family, Retirement, and Contributions. Within the Social Security institution, the Union of Social Security Branches or UCANSS (in French: Union des Caisses Nationales de Sécurité sociale) is entrusted by the national branches with missions on matters relating to the working conditions of the organizations’ personnel or on any subject of operation of organizations of common interest, particularly for real estate transactions.
The Sustainability and Real Estate Department of the UCANSS ensures the overall asset management and the safety of their real estate operations (approximately 4.5 million m², only tertiary), both on the budgetary, regulatory and legal aspects. Within this department, Dominique Conti is in charge of the real estate operations department.
Real estate players who properly communicate the performance of their building stock put in place the appropriate means to recover and analyze the relevant data to monitor their environmental performance. In a data-driven context CSR reporting must also be based on factual and quantified indicators.
An smart building aims to meet these challenges of obtaining, analyzing, optimising data before deployment of actions. Indeed, a technological breakthrough is currently taking place with under the umbrella of the IoT (‘Internet of Things’) and the development of associated technologies, for example: the use of BIM throughout the design, construction and operations of a building, deployment of autonomous low energy sensors allowing the feedback of building data, energy monitoring, failure alert system and automate several systems
