Energy & Sustainability
Our commitment to efficient Energy and the environment.
Environmental sustainability and energy efficiency are a crucial challenge for the future and at Artelia we are firmly committed to this mission. We have specialized skills in the LEED certification processes (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and we are currently achieving the WELL certification. Our LEED AP and BREEAM AP teams are composed of specialized professionals who work in synergy with the design and construction teams in order to create sustainable high-performance and energy-efficient buildings, following the entire process from the very first phase of conception up until the certification. We are also an ESCo (Energy Service Company) and we operate in the energy efficiency sector boasting experience in the realization of civil and industrial audits, design of consumption monitoring systems, support in ISO 50001 certification, energy management, request for Energy Efficiency Certificates, and realization of turnkey plants.
In the hydroelectric sector, our Group is at the 18th place of the world engineering companies and at the 13th for dams engineering (ENR classification). During 2017 we participated to several important dams and power stations renovating, particularly in Africa and Asia. We intervene in the construction of numerous STEP (energy transfer pumping stations), a category of hydroelectric plants that offers a very precious storage capacity and energy regulation in the current context. Our innovative approach on the dynamic and thermal calculation of the dams has been the subject of numerous internationally appreciated publications.
