VivaCity, 1st collaborative energy data management programme

The Grenoble territory, an ideal environment for innovation and energy transition, is promoting a ground-breaking collaborative energy management approach. Its originality lies in a trial of joined-up cooperation between local energy operators, in a joint building initiative between the city of Grenoble and Grenoble Alpes Métropole.

This programme, called VivaCity, involves the development of an experimental platform for collaborative energy data management, covering the perimeter of the Grenoble EcoCity (Scientific Peninsula, Esplanade). It is run by GEG in collaboration with Atos Worldgrid and utility operators in Grenoble (Compagnie de chauffage urbain and Eau de Grenoble).

Grenoble’s experience shows the positive role local public companies can play in how energy changes are introduced in the future.

  • 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.
