Not only are we able to create and shape communities across the country, but we also have the expertise to maintain and support them – ensuring that we are offering sustainable initiatives that deliver a lifelong impact. We are a market leader in both urban regeneration and district energy, a significant provider of place-based services and energy efficiency and we have the ability to develop smart digital solutions and the connected home.

At EQUANS, we are passionate about improving the lives of the communities that we serve so they can continue to thrive and grow. From homes to hospitals, schools to municipal buildings - our broad set of skills provides a unique offer that will make a real difference.

Our Vision

Energy lies at the heart of human progress. At EQUANS, we are convinced that “the common good is good for business”. Therefore, EQUANS is offering its customers a unique “as a service” approach to make the zero-carbon transition accessible through integrated, tailor-made and co-financed solutions.  

In order to support all our customers in their journeys to zero carbon, we must lead by example - to date we have delivered: 

To achieve this ambition, we rely on the commitment of our Imaginative Builders community, formed by the Group's employees and all those who work with EQUANS (customers, cities, start-ups, students, suppliers and NGOs). 

We are already working in partnership with universities in the UK and US, including a first-of-its-kind $1.2 billion, 50-year public private partnership with Ohio University, to manage, operate and optimise the university’s utility systems and reduce energy consumption by 25% within 10 years. The partnership will also deliver a new Energy Advancement and Innovation Centre - a living laboratory where faculty, students, alumni, entrepreneurs, industry experts, and EQUANS researchers can collaborate on next-generation technologies such as smart energy systems, renewable energy, and green mobility.
