Ile de Nantes - Retrofitting Actions

As part of mySMARTLife, Nantes Metropole has developed a single desk for energy retrofitting in order to boost energy retrofitting at metropolitan level (covering 24 cities including the City of Nantes). The web-based platform called "monprojetrenov" offers residents a large set of services such as the opportunity to energy audit their homes in order to prioritise retrofitting works; to identify financial support and signposting them qualified construction companies. All services and information related to retrofitting are found on monprojetrenov.nantesmetropole.fr which has become the main tool for the new strategy to promote retrofitting at metropolitan level.

In addition to "monprojetrenov", an innovative retrofitting scheme for individual houses has been developed. It includes the insulation of attics, walls and the installations of smart thermostats in combination with hybrid solar systems. The geographic scope of this action comprises Ile de Nantes and its southern neighbourhoods. This scheme demonstrates the feasibility of introducing new technologies such as intelligent thermostats combined with solar hybrid systems in single-family homes. As part of the scheme, ten individual houses are being retrofitted and tested for further replication.
