ChangeNOW summit is the first World Expo for global solutions from 30 January to 1 February 2020 at the Grand Palais, Paris.
The summit’s goal is to showcase urgent ideas for the 21st century, develop and accelerate concrete solutions, and encourage large-scale action and collaboration between private and public stakeholders.
20,000 visitors and 1,000 solutions are expected, more than 100 countries represented and 250 speakers including Nicolas Hulot, Marian Goodell, CEO of Burning Man Project, Boyan Slat, founder of Ocean Cleanup, Bertrand Piccard, co-founder of the Solar Impulse Foundation... will feed these 3 days between conferences, networking moments, immersive experiences, art and film festival...
LIVIN' : Designed to meet the needs of citizen urban infrastructure managers, Livin' is an urban data management platform that enables monitoring, control, visualization and value creation from data from connected infrastructures. Livin' is a software that goes beyond data aggregation to improve the efficiency of urban environments and contribute to engaging in dialogue with citizens.
EV BOX : EV-Box offers the opportunity for electric vehicle drivers worldwide to live an ultra-secure recharging experience that is as close as possible to their expectations. It offers its customers from all horizons, worldwide, innovative, comprehensive and competitive offers in terms of electric vehicle recharging and associated services.
Electric SCOOTER : Gogoro presented its electric Smartscooter and the "GoStations" recharging infrastructure network, equipped with exchangeable batteries. The principle is simple: instead of recharging the two Panasonic batteries, the owner of a Gogoro electric scooter exchanges them with others in less than 6 seconds at one of the "Go" stations.
SMART LIGHTING : Flashnet develops systems that allow many cities to benefit from intelligent public lighting networks. Already operating with several different IoT standards, inteliLIGHT® - Flashnet's main solution - is one of the most flexible systems on the market. The solution has already been deployed in several major cities such as Dubai (UAE), Penang (Malaysia), Brasov, Craiova (Romania), Mecca, Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Athens (Greece), with pilots and demonstrators spread virtually all over the world.
ILOT FRAIS : is a fresh, ephemeral and reusable space, designed for hot waves and installed in the heart of the city. It offers a feeling of coolness thanks to a canopy providing shade and a refreshing seat thanks to a connection to the cold network. Its automatic operation calls on the cooling network when the air temperature exceeds 28°C. The island then provides a feeling of freshness with a local temperature felt about 5°C lower than the ambient temperature.
BATTERIE MOBILE : ENGIE offers to rent a mobile battery container to avoid noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from traditional diesel engines during events. A combination of batteries and renewable fuels, such as biodiesel or hydrogen, can also be designed in case a long-term energy supply is needed. For those who wish to go further in their ecological commitment, photovoltaic panels can be added to this solution to recharge the battery during the event.
MOBISOL : ENGIE extends its decentralized energy offer in Africa with the acquisition of Mobisol, a pioneer in off-grid solar solutions. Mobisol has deployed more than 150,000 solar home installations, providing clean and reliable energy to more than 750,000 people in sub-Saharan Africa. With the acquisition of Mobisol, ENGIE offers solar home installations in three additional countries, in addition to the six countries in which the Group is already present through its solar home installation subsidiary Fenix International.
DISTRICT HEATING & COOLING : ENGIE operates 320 heating and cooling networks around the world, meeting the comfort needs (heating and cooling) of the public and private sectors while preserving the environment. It uses the natural coolness of a local resource, the Seine, to cool production machines and evacuate the heat extracted from customers, with a regulatory constraint of approximately 5°C compared to the temperature of the water pumped. In winter, when the temperature of the water in the Seine is less than or equal to 4°C, the production method, known as free-cooling, makes it possible to cool the water in the network directly thanks to the coolness of the Seine. The production machines are then less stressed, thus limiting energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
