Rovaltain Business Park in Valence, France

Case study leader

Albedo Energie

Rovaltain is a business park located in southeastern France, in the Auvergne- Rhône-Alpes region (Drôme department), built around the Valence TGV high-speed rail station.

The park development (urbanism, economy, energy, etc.) is led by Valence Romans Agglo, the regional community council representing a group of 54 municipalities.

To support the park expansion and to meet the resulting increase in power demand, an energy strategy was put in place in 2011 to manage energy and consumption, as well as to develop renewable energy sources and secure energy supply.

ALBEDO has supported Valence Romans Agglo since 2012 as an energy consultant by implementing the energy strategy for new buildings, monitoring the energy performance of some existing buildings, and developing the first collective self-consumption project with a few companies in the park.

Collective self-consumption, flexibility potential.


Collective self-consumption is not economically viable at the moment due to the distribution tariff system, electricity taxes, and a lack of public incentives. Local flexibility at public distribution network level is still experimental: financial viability support mechanisms are not yet existent.
