From October 18 to 20, Dijon hosted the RESPONSE Consortium meeting, which brings together all the partners in this European project on positive energy districts. It includes representatives of the cities that will replicate the solutions currently being tested in Fontaine d’Ouche and Turku (Finland).
A new concrete phase in the deployment of the project has begun: the production of the solar equipment at the Buffon school. Soon, more than 500 homes with 1,100 inhabitants in the Fontaine d’Ouche district will also benefit from solar energy, making it the largest self-consumption operation in France.
The two-day event concluded with a press conference attended by François Rebsamen, Mayor of Dijon, and President of Dijon Metropole, who signed the collective self-consumption agreement with Enedis. This was an opportunity to present the project, to show the district, and to answer the questions of the 40 journalists present. In total, several dozen articles in the local, regional, and national press were published, with a TV report on the regional news.
