Better adapted and less polluting infrastructures
Identifying the vulnerabilities of infrastructures and evaluating the climate risks…
...to which they are subjected. This is the aim of the GERICI© solution. Paired with a GIS, this methodological approach assesses the ability for adaptation of the systems studied (resilience) and identifies the upgrades required. This solution has been tested on two motorway sections in France.
> Better integration of environmental risks and constraints in the design and management of infrastructures
> Optimising investment and maintenance costs for the operator
> Assessment of socio-economic benefits for the areas served
> Predicting and managing structural and operational risks related to climate dangers
Road infrastructures are responsible for more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions…
...linked to the transport sector. Today, controlling these emissions is imperative right from the design stage. Egis has developed an Eco-comparison tool for road variants, Variways®, that assesses the carbon impact of a road infrastructure during the construction and operating phases by means of two indicators: greenhouse gas emissions (GHG emissions) and energy consumption.
> Helps decision-makers to optimise their projects and make their choices from the variants using maps, histograms, tables, etc.
> GHG emissions are displayed for each variant
