Energy Cities has published this innovative case study of the city of Bordeaux and the development of its district heating network in order to attain to the mitigation and adaptation measures for cities.


In particular, Bordeaux Metropole has an ambitious climate policy and is part of the Mission Cities identified by the European Commission to reach climate neutrality by 2030. In the city there are 9 existing district networks with a variety of general supplies.
