Transforming the Loire Estuary Regional Community into a Low-Carbon Energy Hub
The Loire Estuary Regional Community has just been designated as the successful tenderer following the call for proposals by the French National Agency for Energy Transition (ADEME) for a low-carbon industrial activity zone (ZIBaC) within the framework of the "France 2030" Programme. The consortium comprising AILE, the Loire Estuary Association of Industrial Firms, of which Arcelormittal, Cargill, EDF, Elengy, Engie, Eqiom, TotalEnergies, and Yara are all members, Saint Nazaire Urban Area District Authority, Estuaire et Sillon Community District Authority, Nantes ‒ Saint Nazaire Port, and Pays de la Loire Regional Authority, is proposing some thirty concrete actions to speed up the decarbonization and energy transition of this industrial area. The ZIBaC label will make it possible to secure funding to prepare and to ramp up the deployment of those actions.
