In 1990, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur’s agency was one of the founders of Fedarene, after a 2 years interruption of the membership; they come back as the Energy and Environment Service of the Regional Council. Fedarene wish to welcome them as new member. Most of you know the staff of this Energy and Environment Service that is nearly the same than before.
Pursuing the mission started in 1980, they have defined the priorities for a sustainable territory which have been formalized by the plan-contract, signed between the national state and the Regional Council, aiming to create the frame of a sustainable development of the territory, to contribute to a more efficient and appropriate use of the energy in the region, and to enhance the assets and the energy specificities of the region.
The Regional Observatory for Energy, Climate and Air (ORECA) opens its new database CIGALE with the contribution of AirPACA. Fusion of the old Energ’Air and Emiprox, this new interface aims to disseminate the energy data on the territories of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, as well as emissions of atmospheric pollutants and GHGs. Taking in the […]
France will host the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris from 30 November to 11 December 2015 (COP21/CMP11). It is a crucial deadline as it must result in a new international climate agreement to keep global warming below 2°C. In this context, together with the presence […]
To respond to the challenge of climate change, local authorities have a key role in defining and implementing actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Therefore, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region and its partners took a strong and long term commitment towards promoting renewable energies and helping local authorities through AGIR .
Concerned for its future, the region of PACA took a strong commitment towards better managing its energy consumption. To take up this challenge, the region launched in 2006 a programme named “AGIR” (Action Globale Innovante pour la Région – Innovative Global Action for the Region) in collaboration with the National Energy Agency. Since 2011 the programme is called AGIR+. The programme was initiated to compensate for the development of the ITER nuclear energy project, with the following policy: for each euro invested in ITER, 1€ will be invested for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
There are numerous guides on sustainable town planning, especially on eco-neighbourhoods. However guides on the sustainable development of whole local authorities, such as the one in this example, are at a less advanced stage and need to be developed.
AGIR is a citizen and participative approach developed to promote penetration of renewable energies and energy savings measures. The initiative is based upon three main principles: innovation, exemplarity and transferability.
