  • 1. * Communauté d'agglomération Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines SQY* THE EUROPEAN HEART OF ECO-INNOVATION IN 2030 З By MULTINOV Team July 2010
  • 2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Need/problem PARTICIPATION TEAM. Funds for this program will come from various providers, from local to European level. For example, SQY will take part in Saint Quentin en Yvelines (SQY) is both a rural and urban area shared by a ‘European Initiative on Smart Cities’ which will test innovative ways of local citizens and commuters, companies and local authorities. It is a place funding programs. Finally, an adaptive management will adjust this plan which can fulfil a vast diversity of expectations. But if it is to remain according to the evolution of the context and to the results of its attractive, SQY will have to succeed in dealing with two main challenges: experimentations. • Environmental challenge, becoming sustainable or even better having a positive footprint Returns/benefits • Economical challenge, enhancing its attractiveness and competitiveness In the future, SQY will not only rely on taxes, a major part becoming very Becoming the European heart of eco-innovation thanks to MULTINOV’s aleatory with the changes going on right now in France, but will also plan, SQY has the opportunity to meet both these challenges. generate its own revenues. SQY will also be more resilient to the evolution of external factors, especially on the energy front where primary sources Recommendations supply will become more and more difficult and expensive. Building on its current assets, SQY will also study and improve very much people’s well This proposal recommends first to improve the efficiency of SQY’s being and become a place well known for its quality of life. Finally, one of processes which rely on natural resources. The main change will lie in the the major benefits is that SQY will become the leading European place in mutualisation of the use of resources, which will turn into a much less the creation, testing and implementation of eco-innovations. MULTINOV’s demanding system from this point of view. It implies important evolutions plan is going to create an environment attractive to investment, SMEs and which will only happen through a strong involvement of the population. creative people. Thus, SQY will become a dynamic economic area where SQY should also change its financial model, from a community which is people enjoy a healthy pleasant life. not only a tax collector but also generates profits from activities run by its sub-divisions. Finally, SQY will develop its competitiveness becoming Why MULTINOV? attractive to stakeholders who will be able to create, test and implement As a multidisciplinary team, MULTINOV has a wide diversity of skills, from the next cutting edge eco-innovations there. technical and architectural to commercial and managerial, which are very Methods strong assets when dealing with a project of this extent. This diversity will allow to deal with various issues which will rise along the project in the SQY will use a range of methods, going from the implementation of most efficient way. Being at the forefront of what is happening in research current leading edge technologies to the creation of Pilot Projects where centres thanks to its network, it is a chance for SQY to be ahead of its time innovations of the future will be developed, before being extended at implementing the latest technologies and processes. It is a chance to build larger scale. The management of this plan will be carried out by a new on this advanced knowledge to go further ahead and develop its structure called INTEGRATION TEAM. Moreover, new tools for stakeholder competitiveness through the solutions which will be used in the next involvement will be created and regrouped in what will be called -2- decades.

  • 6. DRIVERS & CHALLENGES The creation of the OIN Paris–Saclay is expected to bring around 3000 DRIVERS: people in the region (Les Enjeux, 2009), part of it probably settling in SQY. The rise of single occupancy flats also brings the need for more housing of smaller sizes (L'Observatoire de la ville, 2009) (Communauté POPULATION d'Agglomération de Saint-Quentin en Yvelines, 2007) Challenge #2 Increased population ENERGY o housing needs ENVIRONMENT o energy needs o mobility needs GLOBALIZATION Moreover, these people working in SQY may be willing to live somewhere else, which will add on to the current flows of labour force in and out of SQY. The Grand Paris may also impact the population of the region. The transportation infrastructure will be improved, not only towards Paris, but also in a circular fashion to create links between areas THE FIRST DRIVER which needs to be considered is population, of the Ile-de-France (Transport et mobilité, 2009).

  • 7. The energy supply of SQY is totally dependant on suppliers settled FINALLY, from an economical prospect, globalisation is often outside its territory and based on nuclear, heavy fuel and gas power. If considered as a threat, but we should try to get the most out of it. On nuclear fusion happens to work quickly, energy supply will not be a the other hand, the trend may change, and if re-localisation happens, problem anymore. However, the chances for this technology to turn to SQY will have to be ready and take advantage of the opportunities which routine production before 50 or 60 years are very low (D'haeseleer, will rise. Also, economic barriers may rise again and change the impact of 2003). Hence, it is of major importance to act towards energy efficiency globalisation. and to reach the highest possible level of self sufficiency, but remaining connected to the global grid. This also applies to mobility. Challenge #11 Economical competitiveness Challenge #4 Energy consumption o from buildings o from transportation systems Challenge #5 Energy dependency Challenge #6 Energy infrastructure security THE THIRD DRIVER is our planet environment. Climate change, depletion of raw materials, supply of quality food and water are global issues which will impact SQY. The agriculture in SQY covers slightly more than 14% of the total area of the territory (Communauté d'Agglomération de Saint-Quentin en Yvelines, 2009), but it is getting more and more difficult everyday for farmers. Talks around the reductions of subsidies from the EU and a strong pressure on prices make it hard for them to make a living. Also, future events like heat waves, storms could make things worse for this field.

VISION AND GOALS FOR SQY IN 2030 SQY THE EUROPEAN HEART SQY PEOPLE-CENTRIC PLACE, where a well-being culture will be created and people will be involved in OF ECO-INNOVATION IN 2030 the development of their city. We want SQY to go beyond technological innovation successes, which means going further than current eco-cities like Freiboug or Malmö that SQY PEOPLE-CENTRIC PLACE are more “techno-centric”, by generating and implementing social innovations. In parallel, one of our main ambitions is to be the first European city implementing functional economy which is a new responsible SQY EUROPEAN consumption mode tackling the scarcity of resources and fostering existing and new businesses. To reach that goal, we chose to encourage ACCELERATOR OF MULTIPLE the citizen to be actor of its daily consumption, while offering him easy ECO-INNOVATION access to high quality products to rent.

  • 13. WHO? INTEGRATION TEAM Turning SQY into a leading Eco-city requires multi-level governance (Corffe-Morlot, Kamal-Chaoui, Donovan, & Teasdale, 2009) and MULTINOV proposes to create a ‘PARTICIPATION TEAM’ which would be organizational innovations: the integration of multi-competencies is key dedicated to public engagement inside the INTEGRATION TEAM. This to the success of sustainability planning (Brownill & Carpenter, 2009), special team is detailed in the following pages. This is the first time that MULTINOV proposes to create an 'INTEGRATION TEAM' (InT). such a team focused on participation will be implemented in an eco-city project. As a new territorial actor genuinely anchored to worldwide sustainable logics, from the Kyoto protocol to the Grenelle de l’Environnement, it advocates an increasing role of local entities in climate change action. This new local-scale facilitator called Integration Team will develop an integrated planning framework to ensure that proposed actions, policies and strategies will contribute to achieve the common vision, i.e. “SQY the European heart of Eco-Innovation in 2030”. Its main purpose is operational: successful implementation of the three pilot projects: “1- Low waste community”, “2- Clean mobility system and “3 - Smart buildings” and duplication on SQY’s territory of the best actions. INTEGRATION TEAM STATUS • Municipal limited company founded by the SQY • Mostly financed by public forces: EU funds such as "intelligent energy", and "smart cities", national and regional funds. • The team members: 50% will be employees from public services and departments from the SQY, depending on the competencies required by the projects, and 50% from UVSQ and Econoving Chair. -13-

PARTICIPATION TEAM To build the future eco-city, MULTINOV bases its vision on a "well-being The participation team will include developers and the existing pillar", in which public engagement and active participation play a key development council of SQY (CODESQY) which is composed of different role. Indeed MULTINOV proposal is set up with public participation to stakeholders nominated by the president of SQY. The developers of the define and build up the project for SQY 2030. PARTICIPATION TEAM are people from SQY and private experts in social participation. The first year of the MULTINOV plan consists in the project definition with the different stakeholders, which means inviting citizens to SQY VOLUNTEERS CONCIL participate to this definition. According to Braun (2010) social participation succeeds when stakeholders’ opinions and People of CODESQY are 85 volunteers and come from different activities: recommendations are taken into account. Thus, it is necessary to consult economic, social, cultural. They are like consultants for any project people before making decision and to get them to participate in the proposed in SQY giving advices and remarks, and observing project analysis and development of the plans. implementation. dagglomeration/le-conseil-de-developpement-codesqy/presentation-du- codesqy/ “Developers at this stage should not only incorporate stakeholder’s suggestions into the planning process but also indicate how stakeholders can participate in carbon-neutral actions” (Braun, 2010). Each pilot project (or sub-project) will happen in a district of SQY. Therefore each pilot project will have its own place for information and participation District MULTINOV will present propositions for SQY in 2030 based on 3 pilot information about its definition and its development.

It is divided into 4 parts: public consultation and The district information centres can also host self-organising groups (also planning definition, monitoring for proposals incorporation, known as self-builders) which will create and manage evaluation project development of actions, and monitoring and evaluation of the process. of innovations (Ornetzedera & Rohrarcherb, 2006). The aim is to involve future users from the beginning of project planning processes which should foster the adoption of innovations. These groups will be set at the early phase of a pilot project or of an innovation development. REFERENCE Nantes is a French pioneer in putting in place innovative social participation processes. They developed a specific workshop called “Atelier Climat” which consists in evaluating citizens about how they can reduce their ecological footprint in a daily life (KOSTRECHE, 2010). They also implemented a new method to involve inhabitants in the water management, which is called “dem’eau” (Un atelier citoyen autour de l'eau, 2009). MULTINOV, with stakeholders’ approval, could propose this kind of participation methods for any particular innovation. -16-
  • 17. HOW? QUADRI-HELIX SYSTEM SQY will apply this extended system to the field of Eco-Innovations, and PEOPLE-CENTRIC INNOVATION more particularly on the following specific competencies which fall in a wider list edited by EURADA (EURADA, 2009): SYSTEM • New products through constant innovation, technology leaps or new uses for existing products (eco-construction, bio-fuels, etc.); Innovations systems have evolved with time.

STATE/LOCAL AUTHORITIES The first mission of the ‘observatoire des meilleures pratiques’ will be to monitor the outcomes of the KIC program, supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT, 2010). One of its aims being to foster entrepreneurship and new business creation, some of its conclusions could be interesting for SQY to remain at the leading edge of system organisation. Our initial metrics for the evaluation of the performance of SQY innovative system will use the European Innovation Scoreboard 2009 (PRO INNO EUROPE, 2009) as a basis, and will be upgraded once the conclusions of the European research group which was created in May -18-

  • 21. LIFE CYCLE ANALYSIS To emphasize the benefits of MULTINOV Pilot Projects, we plan to perform a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). The main difference between eco- innovative projects’ assessment and standard projects lies in the need for a detailed analysis of each phase of their life, and more specifically manufacturing and end-of-life. For low pollutant systems (renewable energies, compressed-air vehicles etc.), emissions during the operation phase are negligible, whereas a considerable amount of emissions is associated with material procurement, manufacture and transportation (Gagnon et al., 2001). For our project we will evaluate two approaches: a process-based model developed by the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the 'Ecobilan d’ACV' developed by the ADEME (ADEME, 2005). The first method is widely used for innovative projects assessment for example in the field of renewable energies (Khan et al, 2005). The most appropriate methodology will be chosen after this evaluation phase. This analysis will be used by the INTEGRATION TEAM during the project design and validation stage, which will facilitate early-project decision making by evaluation of performance, cost implications and environmental impacts (Kam et al., 2004). Moreover we propose to evaluate the innovations using a range of indicators suggested by H. Kobayashi in its Life Cycle Planning Methodology (Kobayashi, 2006). Some of them are presented below: • Project eco-efficiency - ‘product value per environmental impact’; • Factor-X - the improvement ratio of the eco-efficiency. Furthermore this approach will be used to assess all new innovative From ‘Diaporamas’ products, processes or activities which could be adopted by SQY. -21-

SQY will combine two very promising breakthrough approaches to its territory: PRODUCTION! circular economy and functional economy, which will bring SQY at the first step of the podium in the change from pollution management CONTEXT towards resources management. Scarcity of resources is becoming critical worldwide as some materials are likely to disappear in less than 20 years. This is the driver that brings CURRENT WASTE STRATEGY waste reuse and recycling strategies at the forefront of policies. At SQY scale, waste policies are organized differently among the 7 The European waste directive of 2008 considers waste management at 5 different communes. Although SQY’s waste sorting strategy is mostly levels: prevention, reuse, recycling, with incineration and disposal being based on citizen voluntary approaches, recent and original initiatives the last resorts which are also pushed by the French plan called Grenelle have been created. For instance, ‘sorting ambassadors’ check the de l'Environnement.
