The Lyon Smart Community Program is ending. It has fostered very innovative experiments in the fields of energy production, storage and distribution, mobility and data management. This dynamic was driven by the partnership with Japan, especially through the NEDO environmental agency and Toshiba. 'La Confluence' has tested - in a life-size neighbourhood - several innovations developed in Japan, including various lifestyles and uses of energy. Today, the work carried out on these themes continues through two European programs: Next Building, dedicated to the construction of energy efficient buildings, and Smarter Together.
