Most photovoltaic infrastructure projects like mine, integrated into the building or the eco-district, must be part of an architectural and functional framework. To respond to calls for tenders from local authorities, you need to know the mechanisms for setting up urban projects, the decision-making levers, the legal framework, and then something banal but essential, all the technical terms … So I decided to do this one-year training course which opened up the field of urban planning to me, taking into account the concepts of sharing and limits of public space, networks, the distribution between contracting authority and urban project management in the act of building and planning.

Today I master the major phases of driving an urban development project, I know the legal framework required, the necessary authorizations, I understand the game of actors in each stage of implementation, etc. I speak the same language as the engineers or town planners I have in front of me, I understand their concerns and constraints. I am able to respond to a call for projects from a community, propose solutions, provide skills. The EIVP is a huge network of professionals, decision-makers and specialists in all areas of urban engineering. Yann Desportes – CEO YADES – DAUCEQ EIVP graduate
