Altroconsumo Festival 2018

The Circular economy.

Milan, 28-30 september 2018

We participated at the 2018 edition of the Altroconsumo Festival dedicated to the circular economy era.

The energy sector is going through an unprecedented transformation that has as its ultimate objective the creation of a decentralized, digitized and decarbonised world. For its realization, it is necessary that companies think and operate in a circular economy perspective. This is the most significant model to face the environmental challenges to which we are all called to contribute. This allows for a reduction in marine and terrestrial waste and atmospheric pollution and can contribute to containing global warming.


At ENGIE, we are at the forefront of global challenges - such as the fight against climate change, everyone's access to energy or sustainable mobility - with the aim of building a harmonious progress that reconciles environmental, collective and individual, through the realization of tailor-made projects that respond to the needs of territories, companies, buildings, communities up to individual citizens.

Participation at the Festival Altroconsumo, is also linked, in the themes and objectives, to #ENGIEGreenFriday, a day, that of 28th September, dedicated to initiatives aimed at raising awareness and comparing environmental sustainability. We study solutions for our customers, who can guarantee everyone access to clean energy and 100% green electricity, such as photovoltaic and wind power plants, geothermics, but also smart buildings, smart lighting, connected devices and electric mobility. in the near future they will play a fundamental role in the creation of an increasingly "green" world. Today's mobility is 95% dependent on oil and the only transport sector is responsible for 23% of global CO2 emissions.


The customer has always been at the center of our world. For this reason, we constantly strive to guarantee a customer experience capable of responding to individual and specific needs, combining our know-how with the opportunities that digitalization and innovation have introduced:

  • ENERGY REQUALIFICATION of apartments and buildings. The technological solutions we use in this area generate environmental benefits and economic savings. A recent study carried out with the Milan Polytechnic showed that, by applying 20% ​​of buildings in northern Italy, a balanced mix of the main energy efficiency solutions (such as replacement of the boiler, installation of intelligent thermostats, LED lighting, photovoltaics, windows and doors). thermal coat), there would be a saving on energy bills of 2.5 billion euros and the lack of emission of 5.4 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year (equivalent to the 2.7 million motor vehicles).
  • THE OFFER FOR THE PHOTOVOLTAIC FOR DOMESTIC USE includes a complete package that feeds the house with solar panels, green energy, a remote monitoring service and possible assistance. We guarantee a conscious, simple and avant-garde shopping experience, thanks to a digital customer journey that starts from the initial consultation, passing on to the personalization of the project, to the construction of the plant and its management over time.
    Those who choose to adopt this system make their home eco-sustainable and energy independent.
  • TWO SOULS IN A SINGLE REALITY. The element that differentiates us from the other players in the sector lies in our ability to have effectively integrated into one reality two different sectors: services and energy. The integration allows us to have know-how and widespread presence throughout the energy value chain.
    On the one hand, we have a million gas and electricity customers and on the other, ENGIE technicians who bring their expertise and experience to our customers' homes, providing technical assistance, maintenance, installation and sale of everything concerning the world energy and heat of the house.
