Energy Cities

Publication year


After decades shaping energy and climate policies for a decentralised, democratic and decarbonised energy system, the next steps for cities is to transform their entire metabolism with a climate-neutral approach.

Building resilient communities means fostering interdependence between sectors, between territories, between economic, social and cultural players and city leaders in order to share wealth and well-being at the local scale.

Our core mission remains unchanged, but we decided to deepen our agenda for wider systemic change.
