Dijon métropole awards Bouygues Energies & Services and Citelum (EDF Group), with SUEZ and Capgemini contract for the connected management of public spaces.

Dijon métropole has just awarded Bouygues Energies & Services (a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction) and Citelum (a subsidiary of EDF Group), with SUEZ and Capgemini, the contract to carry out and manage, over a 12-year period, a connected control centre for public facilities across 24 municipalities of the metropolitan area. Bouygues Energies & Services is the lead company of the consortium.

An innovative contract set to generate savings

The project will be carried out via a contract that includes design, building, operation, and maintenance (DBOM), and is valued at 105 million euro. Investment provided by the City of Dijon and Dijon metropolitan area represents 53 million euro of the contract.


It is a performance contract, with ongoing assessment of the consortium based on the objective criteria of results (65% energy savings on public lightning and call-out times for public areas are expected, as well as 99% availability of IT systems, etc.).


The project is based on an innovative investment leverage effect: savings generated by the project (energy savings, optimisation of equipments and services, etc.) will finance the creation of new services for the Smart City.

A unique Open Data project in France

Operational from 2018, the project will make technical equipment (traffic lights, street lightning, CCTV, street and road maintenance, etc.) more efficient, optimised and pooled, thus facilitating public spaces management. For the first time in France, a centralised and connected tool for the management of public facilities will be set up.


Thanks to digital data generated by connected public facilities, Dijon metropolitan area wants to develop a unique smart city initiative, offering its residents new public services and open urban governance based on Open Data.

It is the first time that France implements a public service project of this scale in terms of Open Data.

The project will modernise and improve the efficiency of public action, develop the region's digital economy, and make it more attractive.
