IRIS Nice Côte d’Azur: Transforming into sustainable districts
In Nice, we develop energy neutral districts deploying renewables and electric mobility solutions.
A digital marketplace for mobility, energy and environmental data fosters innovative applications and empowers suppliers and citizens to be proactive about their sustainability.
Smart storage capacity
Collective self-consumption at building scale
Collective self-consumption at building scale is a new concept for commercial and residential customers in France while only a small number of projects have been done in Europe so far. This concept will be tested in Nice Meridia on two positive energy buildings, IMREDD and PALAZZO.
Optimization of social housing heating
Social housing managers Cote d’Azur Habitat and Engie Cofely have teamed up to test a system of intelligent management of heating in two recently renovated towers. These buildings, equipped with high inertia system underfloor heating, will permit optimal meteorological regulation testing and adjust the temperature for each flat.
Smart charging of a city owned EV-fleet
Low-carbon mobility is one of the main development pillars of the Metropolitan authority, an early adopter of EV-mobility solutions. Nice will become the first public authority in France to test on their own EV-fleet, Smart Charging services in both V1G and V2G modes. A smart charging platform is able to monitor, forecast, optimize, and control the charging behaviour of the EV fleet.
Flexible electricity grid networks
In urban areas, under current market and regulatory conditions, achievable operational savings or revenues, are not enough to ensure a return on such a system’s investment. What EDF and the other involved project partners are targeting, is to test the possibility to operate these generation and storage means to deliver grid services.
An open and standardised data platform
At the heart of the Métropole demonstrators is the City Innovation Platform (CIP), for sorting, storing and managing a large volume of data. in a standard format and coming from a wide variety of data sources and formats. By bringing all the data into a common format, this approach makes it possible to implement open and interoperable solutions. For this, the CIP relies on the Fiware foundation guidelines, the Orion Context broker.
