    • 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 ?

    • Greener construction, how to build greener?

      Across the world, nearly 200 m3 of concrete is poured every second. It is one of the most widely used industrial products - even more so than oil, especially in construction. In spite of its advantages in terms of land development, it is one of the major sources of CO2 emissions due to its cement content. How to build greener? 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? Can green building meet this challenge?

    • Reuse – the fourth pillar of the circular economy

      The idea of reusing materials resulting from renovation or demolition work is gaining momentum. It has to be said that it is very attractive since by reviving this age-old practice, there is indeed much to be gained - new means of recycling, low-cost materials, improved carbon footprint during activities, etc... The list is long. All that remains is to remove any barriers.
