Beyond the ENERGY TRANSition: households and companies strategies: a comparison between Lille and Lyon metropolis – TRANS-ENERGY
The long-term depletion of fossil fuel resources and the need, in front of the challenge of climate change, to reduce greenhouse gases leads to energy transition. This new energy and environmental par
The project is based on the integration of quantitative and qualitative aspects. Exploit the quantitative aspects of operations research methods and new technologies for communication and information (such as RFID), to suggest a new system of management and transport of goods in the city. The qualitative study the socio-economic acceptability of the new system.
Ecovillages and new experiments in participatory sustainable city.<br /><br /> If they are not the only way to achieve the goal of urban sustainability, the «eco-neighborhoods« are privileged areas of experimentation, observation and promotion of concerns expressed about the «sustainable city«, particularly in terms of participation. They are, in the latter respect, the purpose of the project PAGODE
