Lyon's demonstration area is Lyon Confluence - one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in France (150 ha – 600 000 m2 existing floor area – 1.000.000 m2 of new buildings).
It is the first WWF approved urban development in France and it is the largest urban redevelopment area in France with such an ambitious target such as the zero carbon objectives: the annual greenhouse gases emissions at the end of the urban project must not be superior to the level of emission at the project start.
- refurbish 35,000 m2 of existing buildings to reduce their energy consumption
- develop local renewable energy production: photovoltaic systems (1MWp) and a wood-fired co-generation power plant (2MWe/4MWth)
- reduce the use of conventional cars by providing alternative means of transport for inhabitants: smart charging stands, electric-vehicle car-sharing system and an autonomous driverless electric shuttle
- develop a data platform to monitor energy production and consumption in the area, and the actual effects and benefits of measures implemented to reach the zero carbon objective
- involve citizens in the redevelopment of the Lyon Confluence area and the implementation of new services (creation of an urban living lab to allow citizens and users to co-design the smart city solutions).
- increase the quality of life of inhabitants through construction of comfortable and affordable dwellings and office places, convenient public spaces, easy access to the district, etc.
Lyon Confluence Community Management System (CMS)
This document focuses first on the existing metropolitan data platform, which is an essential element in digital apps development on the territory. Functionalities, data access rules and technical architecture are detailed. Some examples of data sets published and services deployed on top of the data platform are given.Read more
This document focuses first on the existing metropolitan data platform, which is an essential element in digital apps development on the territory. Functionalities, data access rules and technical architecture are detailed. Some examples of data sets published and services deployed on top of the data platform are given. It gives then a general overview of the objectives of the CMS, illustrated through the use cases covered. Data sources used, data flows and organisation are also presented at a macroscopic scale. A section is dedicated to the SOS format, the pivot format selected to support the publication of all data collected for the CMS.
The main section deals with the state of development of the CMS web application: after a description of the expectations regarding each of the use cases addressed by the tool, the technical architecture and the development methodology are presented. On the basis of screenshots of the software installed and running currently on metropolitan servers, the user interface is then detailed. An example of electricity consumption graph illustrates the kind of analysis made possible by the CMS. To conclude this section, future developments needed to improve the software and to expand its features and data perimeter are listed.
