    • Using industrialisation to accelerate the energy revolution

      One of the most significant potential areas for saving energy and greenhouse gases is the thermal renovation of buildings. But we are not renovating enough. The method needs to change, and this will probably happen via industrialisation. Industrialisation, boosted by the European EnergieSprong project, means improved performance and quality of use.

    • Greener construction – just a fad or a genuine concern?

      Across the world, nearly 200 m3 of concrete is poured every second. Concrete is one of the most widely used industrial products - even more so than oil. Although we know all about its advantages in terms of land development, its drawbacks are significant. It is one of the major sources of CO2 emissions due to its cement content. About one billion tonnes of CO2 is released each year in the world by the cement industry. In the face of such global challenges and future changes in urbanisation, a revolution in construction methods is beginning. How can the construction sector commit to becoming more carbon-free?

    • Laying the first stone of the Biotope

      Crédit Mutuel Nord-Europe, Linkcity and Bouygues Bâtiment Nord-Est (subsidiaries of Bouygues Construction) laid the first stone of the future MEL head office, in the presence of Damien Castelain and Martine Aubry. The event marked the beginning of the largest office construction project currently in progress in the Lille metropolitan area.

    • Photovoltaic : where are we?

      “At the end of the crisis [health linked to the Covid-19 epidemic], the questions [regarding energy policy] will need to be readdressed.” So said Pascal Roger, president of the Federation of energy environment services (Fedene) to News Tank Cities on 01 April 2020. Currently, new renewable energies represent a prospect for ecological transition for this sector with photovoltaic in the lead, between giant power plants and innovative installations. Where are we ?

    • Still engaged with change after ninety years

      Although the HLM movement will soon be a hundred years old, it is still calmly and determinedly addressing the challenges it must face: providing homes, of course, but also accommodating changes in society. Energy transition, climate change, regional sustainability, and the shift to digitalisation are all taken into account.
