Rhônalpénergie Environment was created to meet the needs of the local authorities in terms of
information, advice and assistance in the field of energy. In 1995, it
broadened its activities to include the environment sector. At the regional
level, it aims to promote communication in energy and environment matters
between the different partners (public or private companies, professional
organisations, non-profit organisations…).
Rhônalpénergie Environment carries out
studies and provides advice on setting up projects.
