France’s largest Display® poster is in Paris!
The City of Paris joined the Display campaign in 2012. Last February, passersby discovered the 2008-2010 energy performance of the city hall of the 18th district of Paris.
The municipalities of 4 Parisian districts (12th, 13th, 14th and 18th) engaged to display their energy consumption and to take action in favour of public and city employees awareness.
Among others, the 12th district municipality acquired low-energy light bulbs, about 50 new windows and set up a heating plan (less heating in the evenings and week-ends).
After undertaking its energy performance diagnosis in 2008, the 13th district municipality lead an environmental analysis aimed at identifying the factors influencing energy performance. They are also currently proceeding to a greenhouse gas diagnosis.
In the 14th disctrict, in addition to refurbishment and thermal retrofitting, awareness-raising actions are implemented to encourage all users to reduce their energy and water consumption.
The 18th district municipality already carried out significant retrofitting works, as replacing the glass roof and windows. From February 13th to March 1st 2012, the municipality displayed the Display® poster indicating their energy performance on the forefront of their building.
The 2nd and 3rd districts will soon join the Display® campaign.
