Vorarlberg’s Territorial strategy for sustainable construction, an inspiration for our territories


October 1st at 2pm, L’Isle d’Abeau welcomes an half-day of exchanges intended for elected officials and the actors involved in the definition and implementation of local sustainable building strategies in their climate plan and their vision of TEPOS in 2050.

Partners in these exchanges are firstly Voralberg (Austria), in a pioneering role of regional energy strategies, and secondly Rhônalpine players in position to develop these strategies.
Indeed, Vorarlberg has implemented a strategy to become a TEPOS in 2050. In addition to the development of renewable energy, a big part of the actions is the reduction of energy requirements in buildings (public and private). If the issue of energy efficiency in buildings is still important, other aspects of sustainability are not forgotten : maximum comfort for users, use of local materials, regional economic development through increasing the skills of local businesses…
As a continuation of several European projects (NENA ENERBUILD, CABEE, VISIBLE …), MountEE project allows through these exchanges GPRA Nord Isère durable, Métropole Savoie, Grésivaudan, Communauté de communes de l’Oisans, taking inspiration from Vorarlberg in the development of tools to develop strategies for planning and adapting some tools : support service to communities, cross-compliance of government incentives related to environmental performance described in repositories of environmental Quality building.

The objective of development of support service to communities, service validated by ASDER and AGEDEN on ten pilot projects in the territories of Metropole Savoie, Grésivaudan and Communauté de communes de l’Oisans, is the subject of a second day of discussions.

Several pilot projects will be presented on October 2nd in the morning at ASDER (Chambéry) and followed by discussion of the environmental choices that have been made, in the purpose of collective progress of the actors. Two representatives of sustainable construction in Vorarlberg, Mr. Lenz and Mr. Dietmar Karl Torghele will be present and will share their expertise on these projects. This project review will be followed in the afternoon by a meeting of the Committee of Local Cooperation dedicated to financial tools and strategies to local sustainable buildings
