Hydrao

Hello C40 cities and kudos for picking up the slack when national climate policy sometimes falls dow on the job :)

Hydrao is a French water-tech & data start-up.

We provide smart solutions for water conversation and management.

The first product based on our leading-edge patented Behavioral Efficiency technology is Hydrao the world's first smart shower.

Hydrao empowers users to become eco-citizens and enables them to make significant water AND energy savings.

We recently won a major international public tender for smart showers from PUB, Singapore's state water utility.

We are therefore looking to partner with other forward-thinking cities that are at the forefront of the energy-water nexus.

Cheers.

Transsolar KlimaEngineering
12/12/17 10:48
Transsolar is an international climate engineering firm determined to create exceptional, highly comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces with a positive environmental impact.
We believe that the built environment is more than the physical building. Our approach explores all factors affecting the occupant experience – indoors or outdoors. We respond with dynamic solutions that work with this natural variability, not against it. While we are constantly developing new technologies and finding innovative applications, we recognize that technology alone is not the answer. We are pioneers in implementing passive design strategies, and pride ourselves in their application in built, significant projects, both large and small.
Our product is a process. We ask difficult questions, challenge convention and propose new solutions, and thoroughly test ideas. Each project requires both sharing our knowledge, generating new ideas always achieving the same goal: High Comfort, Low Impact.
Elioth, Egis-Concept
12/04/17 15:03
Elioth is a multidisciplinary workshop of engineers, architects, designers and data scientists, dedicated to developing low carbon inventive design.

----------------
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN - FAÇADE DESIGN - SPECIALISED STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING
----------------

A unique gathering of knowledge !

Elioth is focused on concentrating its skills in complex and timber structures, facade engineering, environmental design and building physics on the energy, climate and environmental challenges which we are faced with at both city and building scale.

Our internal R&D LAB develops datadesign and innovative tools along with experimental architectures with 169-architecture to form our core melting pot for curiosity and future proof solutions.
MANIFESTO – FOR ARTS AND CULTURE
11/28/17 22:51
Manifesto is a strategic and operational consultancy firm dedicated to initiatives in the fields of culture and arts. It was born in Paris in 2015 from the shared visions of its 2 founding partners, eager to make room for culture and arts initiatives at the heart of our lives and cities.

We team up with urban developers and assist them in designing and bringing to life creative sites with an added value. We conceive a specific arts and culture program for the project, identify and sustain unique partnerships, come up with artistic interventions and organize the creation and management of cultural facilities.

We believe that social and environmental change can be driven by artistic initiatives and cultural programs.

Having successfully participated in several competitions in the Greater Paris area - notably “Réinventer la Seine” and “Inventons la Métropole du Grand Paris” - we would love to share our experience and learn from new challenges worldwide.

We develop an breakthrough energy storage system for buildings and eco-districts, the Smart Energy Hub. At the heart of this product is a technological innovation: high temperature rSOC energy processor. This technology allows to store large quantities of energy in the form of hydrogen without loss in time, and in a completely reversible way allows to restore electricity and heat to buildings whenever needed. This product therefore makes it possible to:
- Bring energy self-sufficiency to buildings and eco-districts throughout the year by reducing the electricity purchased from the grid by 90-95% (with proper scaling)
- Size the right energy storage technology for the specific needs (power management and capacity storage),
- Serve as an energy back-up, based on cogeneration in the methane fuel cell (or bio-methane) mode.
LUP - Laboratoire d'Urbanisme Pluriel
11/28/17 09:42
Pragmatic, experimental and involved in finding new ways to conceive the city, LUP defends an original way of thinking urban projects based on architectural and law skills.

LUP closely involve design of urban projects and the definition of tools (legal, financial ...). This specificity allows us to integrate into the design process problematics such as the organization of actors, legal translation of the project, financial impact, operational arrangement and risk of litigation.

LUP has already worked on “Reinventer Paris”, “Reinventer la Seine” and “Inventons la Métropole du Grand Paris”, three similar competitions launched by Mayor of Paris since 2015.

We are interested to contribute with our experience of this type of competition as we are with our knowledge of the French context and rules.

I´m a Civil Engineering and Master in Urban Engineering, living in Córdoba, Colombia. I work in urban projects and consulting that help to promote sustainable territories, from planning, control and execution, so as to ensure the quality of life in present, thinking always on future generations.
Actually my research work is focus on green urban infrastructure and how in my city we can implement the New Urban Agenda.
I believe in the collaborative work between government, companies, citizens and the academy to change cities and also for reinventing cities is important to foment the citizen intelligence.

I am Sylvana from Ecuador, actually studying Sustainability in Urban Environment in New York.

Between my experience and interests are green infrastructures, assessment, and optimization of energy and material flux in the cities, resilience design, sustainability components, decarbonization of cities.

I really would like to find a team to propose a project at Parque Bicentenario in Quito. We are living a transformation process in the cities were the resilience and sustainability are important components. I have seen and I have been working on some projects looking how the zero-emission projects are possible and I really would like to be part of the team to transform my home city.

We farm the Undergrounds!

We are looking for abandoned underground spots to potentially be recycled into productive and sustainable farms. We started 2 years ago in Strasbourg (France) and now operate 2 undergrounds farms of 4'000m2 in total. We are looking for opportunities around Europe to become the 1st European Urban Farmer.

Rutas Naturbanas
11/21/17 01:50
A group of COSTA RICAN citizens joined to create Rutas Naturbanas, a project to enable 25kms/15 miles for people to bike and walk along the two main rivers of San José. The proposal, accepted by government, will begin construction of its first kilometer in 2018 through a private donation.

Making public space out of abandoned and residual property setbacks will support access to the general public of urban river ecosystems. This effort will provide sustainable and active transportation networks for people to move safely, allow community environmental surveillance, river cleaning efforts, and tree planting and maintenance. Community appropriation and empowerment will help build a more resilient and reduce transportation carbon footprint. All 25km will be wheelchair accessible.

We are a young architecture design practice based in Paris area, France.

We would like to connect with highly motivated and open minded partners from all over the world willing to design a positive future for our beautiful cities.

Evolving in an international environment and experienced with previous competitions such as Reinventing Paris, we can bring to any team our local expertise and most of all - our creativity and freshness. These latter universal qualities may be useful for reinventing any city. We can lead the design team, give support as local architects or having a secondary role.

We will be happy to discuss serious opportunities to design great sustainable projects for great sustainable cities and #MakeArchitectureCoolAgain

Looking forward for you, getting in touch with us!
