THE PERIOD OF RENDERING OF GROUP PROJECTS HAS JUST BEGUN. DISCOVER THE WORK OF OUR STUDENTS.
The project "The rise of territories in the electricity market"
Commissioning organisation: EDF R&D et the Centre for european studies and comparative politics of Sciences Po
Students: Chloé Chevalley, Romane Demory, Pierre-Luc Lopistéguy and Jérémie Raballand from the master Regional and Urban Strategy
Based on an analysis of the ongoing reconfigurations within the French electricity market, the study raises the following questions: Are the communities directly engaged in renewable energy production projects, with what tools, for what purposes? What are their ambitions, their motivations? Could some of them eventually form influential public groups, strongly present in their territories and constituting the driving force of a “territorialized” translation of the energy transition?
The study was based on extensive literature review, interviews in Paris and in the regions, and two in-depth case studies on the territory of the urban community of Dunkirk, and the union Energies Vienne.
What is a group project?
Called also capstone or workgroup, this highlight of Master's degrees puts the students in professional situation. These have to answer to an order of a private or public structure on an urban or territorial problem (housing environment, planning, economic development, transport, mobility, etc.).
During 5 to 9 months (according to the course), every team from 4 to 5 students works under the supervision of a tutor, a specialist of the handled question. The project ends in an oral presentation of the students to the commissioning organisation. This period of renditions takes place of the end of May to the middle of June.
