The project forum: an overview of City-zen initiatives!

The City-zen project is 22 innovative projects. The project forum, organised during the City-zen Days, was an opportunity to discover many of them, and to travel between Amsterdam and Grenoble with a fun and lively approach. A guaranteed immersion in the heart of the energy transition!

The idea? Discover 10 City-zen projects (5 from Grenoble and 5 from Amsterdam), by interacting directly with the leaders of these initiatives. A speed dating of sorts. Indeed, each speaker had 5 minutes to present his project, then 10 minutes to discuss with the participants gathered around him. Once the presentation was over, everyone chose a new innovation to discover.

This interactive and concise format was very much appreciated because it allowed an enriching share and feedback of experiences between partners, professionals and a diverse audience. From photovoltaics to smart grids and rehabilitation operations, the presentation of this wide range of innovative themes allowed everyone to leave with an overview of the City-zen projects in action in Grenoble and Amsterdam.

  • 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.
