  • Building a low-carbon city

    In a previous article, we outlined the potential pillars of a city compatible with carbon neutrality, and presented regional strategies and initiatives that are already moving in this direction. Now let’s take things further and look at how we can incorporate this vision into day-to-day urban development. What mechanisms should be activated? Or put another way—to borrow the title of this publication from the Paris Urbanism Agency—what kind of “grammar” can we devise for carbon-neutral cities?

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Interview of the month: Ramy Saad

    Ramy Saad, energy efficiency and sustainable design engineer at Bouygues Bâtiment International, shares details of European research project “EnergyMatching”, part of the large-scale “Horizon 2020” programme on making energy efficiency improvements to buildings.

  • A panorama of solar farms

    "Our subsidiaries Bouygues Thai and Bouygues Energies & Services, in a joint venture with the local company McTric, have built four solar farms in Ayutthaya, 100km north of Bangkok,in Thailand. Back in pictures on this amazing project:

  • Energy renovation – the driving force behind new uses

    While improving energy performance is essential during a renovation project, it is not the sole objective of project managers. Of equal importance are the key features aimed at incorporating different uses within a building. Issues such as planning, digitalisation, occupation of space, quality of life at work, etc. also need to be fully addressed.
