SCIC Les 7 Vents (FRANCE)
Les 7 Vents is a cooperative society of collective interest, which accompany territories and citizens in the energy transition and sustainable lifestyles. Its aim is to stimulate territorial dialogue on energy transition. Originally an association (created in 1998), it was transformed into a Cooperative Society of Collective Interest (SCIC) in 2005. The team believes in the virtues of a diversified and involved membership in order to bring its advisory and consultation approach to life. Its activity has grown in 2002 when it was approved as an Energy Information Centre. Since then, Les 7 Vents evolve gradually into a consultancy business through a building and renewable energy consultancy and an “Innovation and European projects” department, mainly designed to meet the needs of local authorities and companies.
On a daily basis, the team members apply their know-how : engineering, field expertise, prospective analysis, to provide concrete answers to the challenges of climate, energy and, more generally, sustainable development. The objective is to implement relevant solutions adapted to the territories and the actors that make them up.
