A public meeting will be held on July 12 to discuss a geothermal heating network planned for the municipalities of Pantin, Les Lilas and Pré-Saint-Gervais on the outskirts of Paris.

A 20-kilometre geothermal heating network is planned to be deployed in the municipalities of Pantin, Les Lilas and Pré-Saint-Gervais in Paris between 2024 and 2026. It will supply heating and hot water to condominiums, social housing and public facilities. . and will save approximately 28,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to the emissions of 19,000 cars.

The heating network will be deployed by the local public company (SPL) Unigeo. This company was created in February 2022 by the three municipalities as well as Sipperec, the intermunicipal syndicate of energy and communication networks on the outskirts of Paris.

In connection with this project, a public meeting will be held at the town hall of Pantin on July 12, 2022 to discuss how geothermal energy can reduce heating costs and help preserve the planet. The meeting will be co-hosted by Mayor Bertrand Kern and SPL President Samuel Besnard.
