Climate City Newsletter N°6

September 2020

ANTICIPATE CLIMATE CHALLENGES AT THE HEART OF CITIES !

EDITORIAL

Our ambition is to become the world reference for micro-scale modeling of climatic hazards that cities could suffer. We will produce data and models to anticipate, neighborhood by neighborhood, over several years, changes in the urban climate. We will put into perspective the risks of heat islands, floods, pollution, all the extreme phenomena resulting from local and global climatic dysfunctions.

Our asset, in order to produce reliable and durable data in addition to satellite data, will be to operate a local climate observation network carried by tethered balloons deployed 450 m above urban areas. The data that will be collected on a permanent basis, and which will combine the observation of anthropogenic phenomena and advection, will enrich an IOC (Internet Of Climate) unprecedented on the market, real big data and the driving force behind operational urban climate modeling.

We hope to be able to benefit cities, town planners, architects, real estate developers, insurers, manufacturers, all city stakeholders who must adapt to the predicted changes in the climate.

EVENTS

Climate City teams will participate in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) congress to be held in Marseille in 2021, at a time not set today due to the epidemic.  

On this occasion, and with the objective of being part of the next One Planet Summit which should take place in parallel with the IUCN Congress, Climate City will deploy one of its demonstrators in Marseille and bring together its partners on one of the most beautiful schooners in the old port of Marseille !

DEMONSTRATORS IN TROIS-RIVIÈRES, PARIS, LYON, NANTES, MARSEILLE AND TOULOUSE

The city of Trois-Rivières (Quebec – Canada) must host the first Climate City demonstrator as part of the creation of La Cité des trois climats, a cluster dedicated to the adaptation of cities to climate change and whose first members should be meteoblue, Createch (Bell group), Astrocast, the CS group, Bechu & Associés and Climate City !

The first stage of this project was initiated in January 2020, in Trois-Rivières, in the presence of all Climate City partners; the steps that were to follow are now “put on standby” due to the global epidemic of Coronavirus and the implementation of containment and travel ban measures.

Climate City nonetheless maintains with determination this project to set up in Trois-Rivières and, while waiting for “the day after”, is stepping up its demonstrations in France, with the objective in particular of deployments in Paris, Lyon, Nantes and Marseille. and Toulouse.


CLIMATE CITY STRENGTHENS THE LINK BETWEEN « REAL ESTATE AND CLIMATE »

Acting in the service of the resilience of cities to climate change provides « key » solutions to many actors of urban creation and in particular to real estate developers.

Climate City’s skills as an observer and modeler of the urban climate will in particular have massive use value when it comes, for the developer of a new real estate project, to draw inspiration from climate risk to imagine the best possible use of spaces and architectural design.

The Bechu & Associates agency, which has supported Climate City for 5 years, is at the heart of this ambition, which wants to integrate climate data into the DNA of any real estate project.

CLIMATE CITY OPENS ITS CAPITAL

The consolidation of the scientific team and the commercial forces of CLIMATE CITY, the filing of patents and the financing of its demonstrators require the reception of new partners. The opening of the Capital of CLIMATE CITY is open to everyone and the terms of access to this operation are available on request – in a confidential and secure environment – using the following link :

CLIMATE CITY IS RECRUITING

As part of its development, CLIMATE CITY seeks to consolidate its research and development team, its operational projection force – for the deployment of demonstrators – and experienced salespeople.

In particular, we are looking for urban climate experts, researchers and modellers, as well as commercial engineers from the development of satellite applications. These teams will be staffed in Toulouse and Trois-Rivières, Quebec.
