Our experts provide projects management, help to organise the technical, political and financial aspects of energy projects, and then advise the owners. By rallying and organising the various skills required, they are able to provide concrete solutions adapted to each case.
Our training courses provide helpful tools and step-by-step process to assist the owners and the professionals in their performance improvement program. Our agency also provides a veritable interchange of ideas towards helping to draw up local energy and environment policies based on rational and proven solutions.
For almost 15 years, AGEDEN has been helping owners (particularly local public authorities and social housing leasers) to use energy more efficiently and increase their use of renewable energy sources.
The consultant experts of AGEDEN assist local authorities in defining their project: heating system, needs analysis, economic and technical feasibility and toward take up a project: juridical editing and financing package.
The AGEDEN is particularly sought out by small local authorities which have no internal jurisdiction and often have limited financial resources.
Our technical pole includes 7 specialized engineers who manage between 80 and 100 local authorities’ projects every year.
