Urban resilience to risks in the context of climate change
The aim of the project is to simulate the impacts of decisions on energy and climate change topics to provide energy / climate action plans to be deployed in urban areas.
The project aims to produce a case study focusing on the prospective evolution of land use and the analysis of its impacts on energy consumption. The field of study is the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis, characterized by vulnerability to climate change – temperature increase estimated at +2.1° C in 2030 and + 3.1° C in 2050, sea storms, episodes of intense rainfall generating run-off and/or flooding. This vulnerability is coupled with an energy fragility exacerbated by strong growth in demand in electricity.
Several phases are programmed:
Land use evolution modeling (ESPACE laboratory)
Area energy consumption estimation modeling (EIFER)
Study of Communication Effects (Transitions laboratory)
Collection and loading of data necessary for visualization (ESPACE – EIFER)
Loading of results (Shapefile or tiff) resulting from the modeling process (ESPACE – EIFER)
