Identification:  “Dynamic Modelling of a multi-energy grid for the setting-up of a new district named  “Zac Saint Sauveur” in the city of Lille”


  • Improve the Energy exchange between different type of grids ( heat, gas and Electricity, …)
  • Develop real time models of renewable sources and storage systems to cover the major part of the consumption on this district
  • Integrate consumptions of new buildings following “Energy+ & Carbon-“rules.
  • Help the MEL and his partners to improve the construction of the new district.
  • Work in interaction with a many partners to co-elaborate this new district
Area of 23 ha ; about 280 000 m² Shon: ZAC St SAUVEUR, building projection (view 2015)

Lasting: from September 2016 to September 2018 (24 months)

Supporters: The European Metropolis of Lille (the MEL) and Funding “EcoCités”

Context: European Environmental rules “3 X 20“ and the French Energy transition’s laws

Main results in progress:

  • About 24 GWh per year of energy mix in 2030
  • Development of Locals Renewables Energies sources and storages: CHP, Photovoltaics, solar thermal system , Management of electrical vehicles refilling, New district heating loops
  • Best-case Scenarios thought to bring reduction of greenhouse gas and cost of kWh.
  • Simulations (hourly time) during 2 representative weeks: one in summer and one in winter following the construction planning.
  • Mix of the 3 different energy grids to decrease GhG[1] effects

Partners, Collaborative project with 7 organizations

  • MEL : Métropole Européenne de Lille
  • Ville de Lille
  • GRDF 
  • Enedis
  • Résonor
  • Arts et Métiers ParisTech
