Overview
The label "Cité de l'énergie" is attributed to municipalities active in the field of rational energy management and renewable energies development. This label represents a recognition of a real future proof energy policy.

Services
In our office a consultant assists the municipalities of both Geneva and Fribourg in the process of labelling and re-auditing. She prepares the labelling files, which require a precise inventory of the municipality in terms of town planning, territorial and communal buildings consumption, mobility, internal organisation and communication.
In this way, the municipalities have a very precise knowledge of their situation, enabling them to identify the priority measures to be undertaken. Our consultant also coaches the municipalities in the development of their energy policy with short and medium term objectives and draws up an action plan (list of measures, deadlines, managers and costs) in order to reach them.

Tools
In addition to recognising having an energy and a climate policy consistent with the "2000 W society", the labelled municipalities also have a whole range of management tools, access to the "Cité de l'énergie" website, full of examples of measures implemented in other municipalities, but also an annual follow-up motivating them to maintain their commitments.
