What is the city’s most ambitious target in terms of sustainable energy?

The refurbishment of blocks of flats: so far we have insulated 7,500 flats* out of the 23,000 we have planned to refurbish by 2020.

3 words to describe Energy Cities?

Ambition, youth, sustainability.

What are the benefits of being part of the Energy Cities network?

We are always connected with the latest news on energy and sustainability issues. We are offered the information needed to pursue the development of our city.

We also have the great opportunity to participate in international projects, and therefore to meet other cities’ representatives that have similar interests to ours, share needs and find solutions and together create a better future for our children!
