Several office buildings, around 100 residential units and a part of the street lighting system of Issy-les-Moulineaux's Seine Ouest district were the first to be fitted out with the necessary hardware. This initiative has two main objectives:
- to generate major savings for the municipality of Issy-les-Moulineaux and local residents, via the optimisation of consumption and pooling of resources between offices, homes and shops,
- to smooth out power consumption peaks and balance out supply and demand throughout the network, whilst reducing the carbon footprint.
It will be possible to gradually extend the field of application of IssyGrid® to other sites in the town, or to other energy networks in the Seine Ouest and Fort d’Issy districts.
