A public meeting will be held on July 12 to discuss a geothermal heating network planned for the communes of Pantin, Les Lilas, and Pré-Saint-Gervais in the outskirts of Paris.
A 20-kilometer geothermal heat network is planned to be deployed in the communes of Pantin, Les Lilas, and Pré-Saint-Gervais in Paris between 2024 and 2026. This will supply heating and hot water to condominiums, social housing, and public facilities and will save about 28,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year, or equivalent to the emissions of 19,000 cars.
The heating network will be deployer by the local public company (SPL) Unigeo. This company was created in February 2022 by the three communes along with Sipperec, the intermunicipal syndicate for energy and communication networks in the outskirts of Paris.
Related to this project, a public meeting will be held in the Pantin town hall on 12 July 2022 to discuss how geothermal energy can lower heating costs and help preserve the planet. The meeting will be co-hosted by Mayor Bertrand Kern and SPL president Samuel Besnard.
