Grenoble SmartUps, 2020

Grenoble Capitale verte européenne 2022. Grenoble has been named European Green Capital 2022 by the European Commission in recognition of its achievements in urban sustainability. Grenoble, a beautiful city of half a million inhabitants, is much more than a place of natural beauty and a  playground for skiers. The city is home to one of France’s longest-established science parks, and to multiple institutions intent on fostering technology transfer. Known as the birthplace of microelectronics in France, Grenoble has shown itself to be a leader in digital technologies (computer science, artificial intelligence, connected objects and more…). The combination of skills in both hardware and software has provided local stakeholders with an exceptional set of tools for innovative startups (Grenoble was ranked 5th most innovative city in the world by Forbes). Key factors in the city’s success as Eco-City and Smart City include:

  • 23% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions between 2005 and 2018, along with a 50% targeted reduction by 2030
  • Target of 100% of household energy needs to be covered by renewable energies by 2022
  • 320 km of additional cycle paths and facilities created in 2017 and plans to replace all the city’s diesel bus fleet with clean energy by 2022
  • Grenoble was the first French local authority to adopt a Climate Plan in 2005
