RENOVATION

ENERGY RENOVATION, MULTIPLE SAVINGS

70,000 m² of buildings in La Confluence are part of a building energy renovation programme with multiple aims: improving everyday comfort in existing buildings, preserving historical heritage and saving on the energy bill.

HOUSING, OFFICES, FACILITIES... EVERYTHING’S INCLUDED!

New buildings in La Confluence have low levels of energy consumption. But what about old buildings? Old buildings are the historic soul and architectural heritage of the quarter but are not always very energy efficient. This is why Lyon Confluence has committed to an ambitious and large-scale energy renovation programme for buildings that includes social housing among others.

KEY FIGURES

WHY ECO-RENOVATE?

  • To improve thermal comfort for residents, who will be warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
  • To reduce the energy consumption of buildings. The Low-Energy Building renovation requirement is 96 kWh of primary energy/m²/year. The national average for old buildings in France is around 250 kWh, which is more than double. Renovating is good for the environment (reduced energy consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions) and for the bank account!
  • To preserve historical heritage and increase the value of a building.

WHAT ECO-RENOVATION WORKS ARE CARRIED OUT?

The works are adapted to the needs of each building. Depending on the case, they involve insulating the facades or adding under-floor insulation, replacing the joinery (windows), fitting more efficient ventilation, renovating heating systems or installing photovoltaic panels.
