Better Cities

ENGIE has joined forces with decision makers, partners and communities to build Better Cities

ENGIE is partnering with decision makers to make existing communities smarter, safer and more efficient. We go beyond just providing energy to local authorities. We contribute to the tangible improvement of existing infrastructure by designing the tools, facilities, and services that are transforming cities, making them more resilient, more sustainable, and better places to be. We’re flexible in our approach to ensure the best outcomes for the community.

We’re also co-creating solutions with developers and designing communities of the future, focusing on efficient and sustainable energy production, storage and integration with the community.

We’re completely unbiased in our use of different technology tools to solve different problems, and when we combine our broad range of services we deliver far more value to the community than the sum of each part. Each community is different and we can play a different role depending on the needs of the customer or the municipality. When capital is constrained we can fund some or all the projects, alternatively we can just be involved in the installation of one vertical. Our focus is to create a “Better” city regardless of what role we play.

Our difference is that we bring leading global capability in this space and couple it with our local delivery ability through our skilled local workforce to create unmatched technical and contractual solutions. The combination of our traditional businesses in infrastructures and services combined with our new solutions and knowledge of local authorities gives us this unique position, making us the right choice as long-term partner to implement a shared vision.

Better Cities – Examples

We have Better Cities operating in over 70 countries; see our Better Cities Today website to find our more.

In Australia, we’re working on a number of exciting projects from the City of Perth to the City of Hobart and an exciting development in Greater Springfield, Queensland. We have partnered with Greater Springfield to enable the city to become a leader in embracing technological solutions that create comfortable, safe and efficient environments for its residents. Together, we’ll invest in renewable energy generation and storage, infrastructure, district energy schemes, green mobility solutions, digital technology, energy efficiency initiatives and a dedicated research and innovation centre. By 2038, the six suburbs that make up the Greater Springfield community are intended to be generating more energy than they consume. In addition to being energy neutral, Greater Springfield will be generating and storing energy using leading green technology solutions. A key element of this solution is the use of hydrogen as an energy storage medium.
