Mobility as a service (MAAS) : What operational reality ?

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.

Strikes and transport stoppages: what opportunities for our modes of transport ?

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?

Mobility and energy: solutions to enhance the value of fatal energy in our cities

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.

3 mobility approaches for the city of tomorrow : Frugal, Inclusive and Resilient

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.

Inventory and synergies between “vehicle-to-grid” technology and the building

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.

New uses and innovations: 3 agile methods to imagine future projects

In parallel with this 9th season of the Urban Chronicles™ dedicated to Value in Use, Green Soluce has identified three methods to help you meet the new expectations of your users. The value of a property can no longer be measured by its physical characteristics but by its use. We must take the time to think now about buildings and neighbourhoods that integrate the uses and innovations of tomorrow. How can this be achieved?

Three initiatives to engage and federate stakeholders

Stakholders are at the heart of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and, as individuals and organisations, their interests may be directly or indirectly affected by the activities of a company. As active participants of a company’s economic life, employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders can influence its strategic choices both internally (employees and unions) and externally (associations) or can condition its activities (local communities, local authorities, the State, etc.). The stakeholders of a company are be privileged actors in the participatory governance of a corporation.

Managing city transition: 3 examples of promising models

Charles Landry, an international adviser on the future of cities, argued that cities are misaligned between design and operating system, typical of a 1.0 world and the current 3.0 technological, economic and cultural lifestyle dynamics. Under this tension and disconnection, cities need to transform and reinvent themselves, a process which could take several years. With this focus on “transitioning cities” Chroniques Urbaines™ selected three examples to open the discussion.
