The Santiago Deseado3D simulator, which was handed over to the Municipality of Santiago in June 2015, is a decision-support tool to aid the formulation of sustainable urban policies. Financed by the French government and created by a consortium of companies headed by Artelia, it compiles a large quantity of data on water and waste management, public infrastructure, transportation, the social distribution of inhabitants, telecommunications, etc. to form an interactive map. It then taps into this information to propose assessments of various issues, solutions for optimising urban development and defining integrated, sustainable urban projects.
A new potential for waste energy recovery in the urban transport sector, using real-time smart energy management. Underground Subway stations present unexploited energy resources. A microgrid, smart small scale electrical network, integrating harvest and storage of these currently wasted energies, could allow load shedding/shifting, eventually improving air quality through reductions in trains mechanical braking. These important potentials require numerous innovations in multiple fields: electrical engineering, building energy efficiency, mathematical optimization, modelling, energy economy as well as implementation of real test beds.
An ambitious project with the site kept in operation
Inaugurated in April 2016 following 5 years of works, the Canopy sits proudly on top of the second largest shopping centre in France, a range of cultural facilities and the busiest underground station in Europe. Located right at the heart of Paris, this was one of the construction projects of the decade and a challenge from the technical, spatial and timing standpoints. To renovate and modernise this 6 ha aging site, Paris City Council commissioned Artelia with general coordination services and oversight of overall project technical coherence. The site and the public transport hub remained in operation throughout the works, representing a major innovation in construction site management.

TO COOPERATE – TO SOCIALISE – TO BUILD
The project led by the SCCC Coop Coteau with SCOP Atelier 15, in partnership with the City of Ivry-sur-Seine (94), France, is a practical and modest experience among the alternatives to the housing production and development, responding to new economic, technical, social and environmental expectations and requirements. This project is part of a collaborative economy thanks to its 15-year anti-speculation clause. The project is located on a hillside of the town of Ivry-surSeine, it includes the completion of 12 timber housing in social home ownership, shared spaces (meeting room, DIY shop) and a public pathway across the hillside.

COVOIT’ICI, the car is the new public transport
The partnership of the ecov company, the LVMT Laboratory and 4 major Ile de France local authorities led to the COVOIT’ICI connected carpooling stations network commencing operations at the beginning of 2016 in the French Vexin area. Following the first 7 operational stations, 13 more stations are to be deployed in the Fall 2016.

(Plan de déplacement inter-entreprises) ainsi qu’à l’...
Based on « employee habits and lifestyles », the approach aims to reach concerted actions amongst all users of public and private transportation to design the appropriate systems to « home-work and professional » travel. To provide support in areas of employment, a travel management system has been implemented in partnership with companies. Currently, this new system is used by roughly 400 companies, employing over 60,000 employees. Concerted actions will lead to the implementation of Inter-Company Travel Plans (ICTPs), as well as drafting of action plans that list multimodal possibilities to reduce the use of sole-occupant cars for home-work and professional itineraries, (better use of public transportation, car pooling, bikes, encouragement of remote working, etc.).
