Improving the security of energy supply on the Sud-PACA territory through innovation

Smart and sustainable mediterranean city

General goal

The Sud-PACA region is an energy peninsula where innovation must contribute to improve the security of energy supply. Progress on renewable energies, the exploitation of the territory’s potential coupled with the measures of energy efficiency and electric mobility as well as the development of innovative solutions of electrical, heat or cold networks bring new perspectives on the Sud-PACA territory.

The objectives assigned to this partnership are to study this system with long-term visions and economic approaches, to take into account the specificities of the territory and its Mediterranean character, and to analyze the social dimension and the question of behaviors of customers-consumers-citizens, actors of climate change and producers.
