Grenoble’s local energy and climate agency

logo-alecEstablished in 1998 on the initiative of local authorities, Grenoble’s local energy and climate agency (ALEC) advises both stakeholders and citizens from the metropolitan area. ALEC aims to change habits and mentalities in the field of housing, mobility, lifestyle and consumption. ALEC has become a major partner of local authorities for monitoring energy use and the energy performance of buildings, implementing the energy and climate action plan as well as supporting social housing (promoters, housing associations and tenants) and property managers. It has turned into a privileged forum for all energy stakeholders, from producers and distributors through to consumers.

  • 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.
