Conseil Régional de Bretagne

To respond to the climate emergency, the Brittany Region has launched the Breizh COP, an unprecedented initiative at the national level to decline the Paris Agreement on the climate and build a more resilient and more cohesive Brittany. The Breizh COP sets a clear course: significantly reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, to reach the « factor 4 ». It offers everyone the opportunity to make commitments, each commensurate with their responsibilities and abilities. It carries a positive vision of the future, to anticipate and accompany changes.
The Brittany Region is taking part in this challenge. It mobilizes all its skills to support the territories and encourage the deployment of the new sectors of the energy transition, creating many jobs in Brittany. Renewable energies, from biomass to tidal turbines, are all industrial sectors that can rely on both the natural resources of Brittany and on the skills of local companies.
To support this renewable production and imagine the energy system of tomorrow, decentralized and decarbonated, the Brittany Region has launched with the Pays de la Loire Region the SMILE project for the large scale deployment of smart energy networks. From self-consumption to flexibility, from electric mobility to connected objects, now more than thirty labeled projects make the West an international showcase for smart grids.
The BREIZH TRANSITION trade show is for the Region, a partner of the event since its creation, the opportunity to promote all these projects and those of Breton companies. She inscribed this approach in the Breizh COP, for the commitment of all the Breton in the transition.

Syndicat Départemental d’Energie et d’équipement du Finistère

The Departmental Energy and Equipment Agency of Finistère, as Organizing Authority of the Distribution of Electricity (AODE), is in charge of the organization of the public service of distribution of electrical energy on the territory of 269 communes out of the 277 that counts the department. It also has four optional skills: gas, street lighting, heating and cooling networks and electronic communications.

An important player in the Finistère economy, with € 40 million in investments each year and about 600 direct or induced jobs, SDEF is a major player in the energy transition.

It intervenes in the control of the energy demand, the development of renewable energies (by the end of 2019 realization of 40 photovoltaic power system in partnership with local authorities), energy purchasing groups, the development of recharging infrastructure for electric vehicles (a network of 213 charging stations has been deployed), smart grids. The SDEF also offers a shared energy consulting service.

The SDEF has also created a local mixed economy company (MEC) « Energies en Finistère » to promote the development of renewable energies in Finistère.

In 2019, the SDEF initiated new development axes in the energy transition : the development of a new competence at the service of the communities in the field of the networks of heat, the development of gas stations for vehicles, the assistance to the communities for the setting up of Climate Territorial Air Energy Plans.

In 2019 SDEF also embarked on an ambitious innovative project by offering the Finistère communities an « Intelligent Territory » service based on a LoRa-type communication infrastructure.

Quimper Bretagne Occidentale

In the Pays de Cornouaille, Quimper Bretagne Occidentale was born on January 1, 2017, the merger between Quimper Community and the community of communes of Pays Glazik, and the integration of the town of Quéménéven. This new territory, made up of 14 communes, forms the main urban center of the Pays de Cornouaille. It now represents the second most populous intercommunal structure in Finistère after Brest Métropole, with a population of 100,187, and has a high profile in terms of jobs, services, shops and cultural activities throughout Cornwall.
Labeled Cit’ergie in 2018, it is with a partnership and territorial vision that Quimper Bretagne Occidentale deploys its energy climate policies. By its exemplary nature and its achievements, the agglomeration community wishes to support a regional dynamic, coordinated and structuring, relying on partnerships, knowledge sharing, feedback and pooling resources and resources. In 2015, the agglomeration community seized the issues of green growth, and those of the COP 21, by encouraging the first edition of the Breizh Transition, in order to highlight the talents and contributions to the energy transition of its territory, and, more widely those of Brittany. After a second edition in 2017, Quimper Bretagne Occidentale confirmed its support for the 2019 event, which is a transitional marker in the Breton landscape, and beyond.

Enedis is a public DSO which manages the electricity grid and assists the regions with their energy projects. In the near future the regions will have new methods of production with more renewable energy produced locally and new uses with the increase in electric vehicules and self-supply. Soon, the consumers will be equiped with new tools in particular the electricity meter Linky which will enable them to control their comsumption. Adapting the electricity distribution system is a necessity to take in to account these new uses. This is a major challenge for Enedis which has been commited to developing smart grids for several years and particularly in the SMILE project in 2016. Work  is already underway as on the islands of Finistere for example with the micro-grid in Saint Nicolas des Glénan. This micro-grid is supplied by solar panels, wind generators and batteries to optimise changing production and consumption. There is another project in Penestin in the Morbihan run by a self-supply group which produces electricity from panels installed on the town workshops and redistributes it locally to a dozen companies. The major challenge of energy transition gives Enedis and its partners a central role to play in the success of this project.

Breizh (bio)GNV

Breizh Bio GNV, a network of actors mobilized to develop NGV uses in Brittany
The development of Natural Gas Vehicle for the heavy transport of people and goods is an opportunity for Brittany! Beyond the environmental benefits of this fuel, the challenge is also to prepare the competitiveness of the industry with an alternative fuel to diesel. Under the impulse of metropolises providing for the gradual ban of the most polluting vehicles in their urban centers, and then shippers, the challenge for transport stakeholders is to anticipate this energy transition.
Brittany through its biomass valorization potential also has the opportunity to reduce its energy dependence by producing locally a renewable fuel for transportation.
The collective is mobilizing for:
• promote the use of NGV in Brittany, in particular for the heavy transport of goods and people by road;
• build and operate NGV charging stations on the Breton territory, necessary for the circulation of NGV vehicles;
• encourage the purchase of NGV vehicles that will use and make the stations profitable;
• contribute to the development of anaerobic digestion projects, thus developing a local and renewable fuel (biomethane).
The actors in Breizh [bio] GNV: ADEME, Brittany Region, GRDF, GRTgaz, Brittany Energy, Morbihan Energies, Sde22, SDEF, SDe35, FNTR, FNTV, TLF, CCI35, Brittany Supply Chain and Créativ.
