Grenoble Alpes Métropole

Grenoble Alpes Métropole sits at the foot of the Alps and has long been known for spectacular winter sports. Ensuring those traditions continue led them to launch a Climate Air Energy Plan as early as 2005. The results have been impressive. By 2014 they had recorded a 39% drop in NO2 and a 19% drop in fine particulate matter.

The new plan takes things up a gear. Namely, a 22% reduction in energy consumption (industry, homes, mobility and tertiary sectors), 33% fewer fossil fuels in the energy mix and a boost of 35% for renewable energy and recovery.


Grenoble Alpes Métropole is a member of Energy Cities since 2002
