Lorient, Saint Nazaire et Poitiers labellisées Cit’ergi

Cit’ergie est l’appellation française du label European Energy Award (EEA) mis en œuvre dans plusieurs pays européens (Allemagne, Autriche, Suisse, etc.) et déjà accordé à plus de 1300 collectivités européennes.


A l’occasion des 17èmes Assises européennes de la transition énergétique, l’ADEME a remis, le 28 janvier, les labels Cit’ergie et Cap Cit’ergie à 19 nouvelles collectivités, dont 11 localisées en Arc Atlantique.

Parmi celles-ci, plusieurs membres de la Conférence des Villes de l’Arc Atlantique, comme l’agglomération de Lorient et sa ville, la ville de Saint Nazaire et l’agglomération du Grand Poitiers. Il faut signaler que l’agglomération de Saint Nazaire a été élue vice-présidente de la CVAA à l’Assemblée Générale de La Rochelle. De même, Grand Poitiers a formalisé son adhésion lors de celle-ci.

La démarche Cit’ergie se traduit, au niveau de la Stratégie Urbaine Atlantique, par une prise en compte de la valeur des villes atlantiques en tant que capitales de l’Europe Verte.
