Green economy

“Our region has resources that can be used to create renewable energy: waves (marine energy), sun, agricultural waste (heat, electricity, and gas). Estia has a research platform (Energea) that works on renewable energy sources (optimisation of electricity distribution networks). The public interest group, Littoral Aquitain has studied the coastline, examining its erosion and marine energy resources. Based on this study, we can contact industrialists to develop innovative projects that will benefit us all. Don’t forget that the Port of Bayonne is a major asset in the development of marine energy (off-shore, near-shore, and on-shore)”.

The Center of the World is a special place. It has the ocean, mountains and forests which always inspire our respect. This is clearly demonstrated by the fact that our coastline has not been spoilt, despite the outstanding success of the tourist industry in our region.

We are, therefore, justified in promoting the emergence of projects linked to renewable energy, recycling, marine energy and eco-design in our region.

This research involves different sectors, from waste management and energy production (anaerobic digestion for the production of methane, marine farms), saving energy (eco-design) and limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

A zone is now dedicated to eco-construction: the Landes de Juzan technology park in Anglet. Its activities focus on high-tech and it has developed a resource centre (Nobatek). Engineers and other specialists in urban planning and sustainable construction work with companies. Their mission is to integrate environmental criteria in property development projects, material design and construction processes.
