An energy transition in Lyon.
For several years, the Lyon Metropole has been committed to managing the transformation of its energy systems to better meet the climate challenge.
In particular, it would like to see a significant development of heating and cooling networks, with a high rate of renewable energy, a significant reduction in carbon emissions, a priority to combat fuel poverty and the use of the latest technologies available to optimize production and distribution (thermal smart grid).
The Surville boiler room is part of this approach, since it uses a renewable energy source, biomass (from the region, to limit transportation) and will enable the region to reduce CO2 emissions by 44,000 tons per year, or the equivalent of taking 20,000 vehicles off the road.
The Dalkia Group, which is responsible for developing and operating the Lyon Centre Metropole heating network, entrusted the design of this complex industrial building to Egis and Enia Architectures.
