All French territories have a role to play in the face of climate change and energy challenges. To help them embark on an energy/climate approach, a new guide has just been published offering several courses of action.
Dor the last ten years or so, the energy transition has been playing an increasingly important role in regional development. Undertaking the energy transition in a region with few resources and little State support remains an approach reserved for the most ambitious and proactive players.
To help them embark on an energy/climate approach, the sustainable development consulting firm B&L evolution publishes a guide for territories: "Rural territories also have a role to play in the transition: the keys to a successful approach".
Through the example of the Haut-Jura NRP, this guide provides an explanation of the dynamism of territories in terms of energy transition and offers several avenues of action for territories seeking to launch a broadly inclusive and ambitious energy/climate approach.
"Global awareness of these issues is a vector for optimism, says Gerald Husson, Vice President Environment and Natural Park of the Jura Sud Community of Communes.
Some pioneer territories have today demonstrated the feasibility of such approaches and are lighting the way for the many players who will follow them in the years to come, especially for territories with few resources.
"Territories that today choose to mobilise their assets and set their forces in motion in the energy transition will succeed in creating value in their territory, create jobs and strengthen their dynamism. », explains Charles-Adrien Louis, co-manager of B&L evolution.
