ENGIE has joined this initiative, participating by presenting examples of the Group’s innovative know-how in the fields of intelligent energy management for housing, the use of local energies and in mobility, which are major issues for the City of Paris and strategic business areas for the Group.
- Intelligent energy management in the home: with a game developed by teams from the Research & Technology Department (DRT), ENGIE will let visitors try out an intelligent control system that minimizes CO2 emissions by encouraging people to use energy better every day.
"For the energy transition to be successful, it is essential to explain to people in very concrete terms how they can manage energy in their homes in order to reduce CO2 emissions. This is the purpose of the demonstrator," says Damien Carval, Integration Director at the DRT, ENGIE.
- Biomethane and bioNGV: an exhibit explains how anaerobic digestion can turn organic waste into energy, biomethane, and bioNGV, which can be used as fuel for natural gas-powered vehicles.
These exhibits are related to several calls for innovative projects launched by the Group via its innovation platform, OpenInnov by Engie. The calls for projects include "Cit'ease, new usage solutions for a smarter city", another in "Sustainable mobility for rural areas", and third for " Solutions to address urban heat islands in the Mediterranean region".
Meet at the Port de Solferino – right next to the Musée d’Orsay, to see the demonstrators in:
- Intelligent energy management in the home, from August 19th to September 8th, 2015
- Biomethane and bioNGV: September 12th to October 4th, 2015
Opening hours: Tue, Wed, Thurs: 12 am to 7:30 pm / Fri: 12 am to 9:30 pm / Sat: 10 am to 9:30 pm / Sun: 10 am to 9:30 pm

A Second and Sustainable Life for Dirty Carbon?
Recycling is one of the most important pillars in fighting climate change. Scientists and engineers are constantly looking for ways to reuse everything from plastic to organic waste in an effort to optimize resources and lessen our impact on the planet. Now, an opportunity has emerged to apply the practice to another crucial material, carbon, repurposing “dirty” forms of the chemical element to help eliminate...I'm interested
