As a local actor, the territory of the "Grand Paris Seine Ouest" (GPSO) created, in conjunction with its energy division (GPSOe), a local energy agency (LEA), working with individuals, professionals and local authorities on its territory. It has put in place a local energy strategy. Since 2008 this strategy has been part of the territorial development contract signed with the State, determining the urban, economic, cultural and environmental challenges of the territory for the next 15 years. It is organized around a system of annual or three -year agreements and is financed by European, national or regional grants. The objective is to integrate the territory into national energy efficiency policies and to develop long-term relations with local elected representatives, in partnership with the regional council IDF, ARENE, and ADEME. This goal is implemented as follows: through Training session on climate, energy and energy efficiency; Technical support, awareness raising to local authorities on these themes; Management of energy; Protection and strengthening of the environment and living conditions; Renewable energies (RES); and Advice to the inhabitants through the Info point Energy.
