We carry out a comprehensive environmental policy that covers all of our assets. We pay particular attention to limiting the impact of our buildings on the environment, whether during the construction phase or operating phase. Today, 45% of office rental spaces of the Generali Real Estate French Branch property portfolio has at least one environmental and/or thermal certification (HQE, BREEAM, BBC, and others) in its portfolio. Also, whenever possible, we seek appropriate, environmentally friendly solutions like the connection of our buildings to the CLIMESPACE district cooling network. In doing so we limit the health risks, leaks and greenhouse gas emissions while complying with legislation in force.

CLIMESPACE, particularly in the Beaugrenelle shopping centre project, is a key partner for three main reasons: firstly, from a health point of view, it was imperative not to install air cooling towers beneath the windows of the homes that overlook the centre. Secondly, this freed up space that we used for sales locations. Finally, in terms of sustainable development, connection to the district cooling network and centralised cooling production are much more environmentally friendly than a stand-alone solution. CLIMESPACE is a partner that understands our issues and supports us in implementing even highly complex solutions

Nicolas JOUSSE - Technical Manager - Grevin Museum

Changes in footfall at the Grevin museum are relatively significant and being confident of being able to quickly cool down our public areas is a major asset. Our main requirement is the availability of the service and the CLIMESPACE network suffers no interruption throughout the year unlike the external groups that tend to stop because of overheating in the event of hot weather. Finally, we also need to ensure a comfortable visit and the correct conservation of the museum’s works by guaranteeing fresh and renewed air.

An engineering firm made me three proposals and we chose the CLIMESPACE solution which was the best in terms of sustainable development, was more cost-effective and also allowed us to regain a 30m² area on the terrace. Furthermore, the system proposed by CLIMESPACE is scalable, a valuable advantage for the remaining life of our establishment.

When I have a concern, I know I can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and I will immediately have an operator who will answer and resolve the situation.

Hotels and restaurants

In data centers, 100% of the electricity consumed is converted into heat 1kWe = 1 kWp; therefore, cooling represents 40% of their energy consumption.

Our telecom hosting business activities require us to provide a redundant air conditioning service that is available 24 hours a day to all our customers. To do this we need to rely on partners that listen, react and above all, are high performance. Long-term, CLIMESPACE stood out on two points: its ability to provide quasi-constant, stable chilled water throughout the year and its responsiveness in managing incidents whether at customer facilities or in the distribution circuit.

From the CLIMESPACE perspective, these two factors are essential for effortless and confident, long-term service as exacting and vital as Datacenter cooling. Thanks to CLIMESPACE’s partner, a reliable operating system has been built that facilitates continued confident work on CLIMESPACE facilities for better customer service.
