Role in City-zen

GEG will drive the SmartGrid workpackage.
As a global energy company, GEG has already carried out some transverse projects on the smartgrid topic, as a supplier, as a power generation company or as a grid operator. This transverse view gives GEG some powerful assets in this role.





  • The Project

    A city operating entirely on clean energy. In theory, it's possible. But in real life? How to integrate new solutions in existing buildings, systems and people's lives? What are the technical, economic or social barriers? And how to overcome these? That's what we've learned by doing in 20 projects in Grenoble and Amsterdam.
