Confluence : a carbon neutral neighborhood - Lyon Metropolis
  • Start year:
  • Type: Public Participation/Stakeholder engagement
  • Status:

Lyon confluence is one of the major urban project in europe. The purpose is to extend the city centre by constructing 1 000 000 sqm of new dwellings and offices in 2025 and keep the level of Co2 emission of the year 2000! How can we do that? 1/ reduce the energy consumtion of the existing buildings. 2 /Build positive energy smart building. 3/Produce renewable energy thanks to Pv rooftops and congeneration heating district that will produce heat and electricity with biomass!

Housing renovation campaign - Lyon Metropolis
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: In operation

One of the key elements to achieve a -20% scenario for greater lyon is investment in the energetical rehabilitation of houses and buildings, that represent 1/3 of the territory's emissions. Since 2012, a subvention has been set up to help public constructors (social housing) rehabilitate 2000 appartments up to a very performant level (less than 96 kWhep/year). An experimental phase is also in process for private housing (1200 appartments), the engineering being a key factor as decision has to be taken collectivelly between owners. The experiment will be enlarged in 2015 with additional financial support (around 15% of the price of the works) and help to build the project, fetch other financial support and animate decision-making between owners of a building.

Onlymoov' intermodality platform - Lyon Metropolis
  • Start year: 2010
  • Type: Public Participation/Stakeholder engagement
  • Status: Completed

Greater Lyon has led for several year a political program to promote alternatives to private cars : carpooling websites and infrastructures, carsharing offers (electrical in 2014), bicycle infrastructure and public bikes. Beyond technical infrastructures, information is a key element of our strategy. Therefore, Greater Lyon has been involved since 2011 in 2 european projects to set up an intermodal information database. Optimod'Lyon (2011-2013) and Opticities (2014-2017) projects developp several tools : a platform (Onlymoov, delivered in 2014) gives real-time information on traffic, public transports (bus, car, bicycle) including works and accidents. A prevision of traffic 1 hour ahead, as well as a lmobile application comparing different transport options is in process.

Increase water and green in the city - Lyon Metropolis
  • Start year:
  • Type: Regulatory
  • Status: Completed

Greater Lyon has enforced for several years a rainwater polical programme to reduce stormwater peaks and manage rainwater locally. Measures include : integrated solutions when rehabilitating a public zone (stormwater lakes, raingardens, roofwater recuperation for public gardens...) ; reglementation (it is forbidden to connect rainwater to the sewerage network) as well as technical guidelines to help architects and promoters implement these techniques. A local partnership with research (OTHU) allows a scientifical feedback.

Increase knowledge on local Urban Heat Island effect - Lyon Metropolis
  • Start year: 2010
  • Type: Assessment/Research
  • Status: In operation

The city's main vulnerability is an increase of average temperatures wich is amplifyed by the minerality. Since 2012, a cooperation has started with local research and a private partner, Veolia Environnement. A PHD produced a climatic model of the city and maps of prioritary zones, while the enterprise tested a real-size model of a streat humidification device.
Next developpments will be, for 2014-2015, the creation of a scientifical comittee in charge of designing an "observation tool" (sensors + social approach).
