The multiple areas of expertise needed to design and deploy CLIMATE BIRDS networks have been instrumental in developing and organising a CLIMATE CITY CONSULTING proposal dedicated to the urban climate. This opens the way in particular to offer local authorities but also industrialists the opportunity to analyse particular situations related to heat islands, air pollution or aux disaster risks on a hyper-local scale whether over a few days or a number of weeks.

This CLIMATE CITY CONSULTING proposal also allows urban climate issues to be integrated into the framework of environmental programmes and more especially climate plans that cities and local authorities have a duty to take on board. This proposal can also fit in with the full development of a climate plan and with programmes to raise awareness and train people on climate issues; such programmes address both city technicians and administrators, and of course the inhabitants.

For further information on CLIMATE CITY CONSULTING proposals, take a look at the Diagnostic and Awareness-raising and training headings and their sub-menus.

Moreover, CLIMATE CITY’s consulting expertise dovetails with preparation for the deployment of a CLIMATE BIRDS observation network and operation of the first C-Birds One captive demonstration balloon. The description below provides a link between the consulting and expertise stage dedicated to deploying the network and real state of progress.

Our SERVICES will be rolled out gradually and organised as follows :

2019

First Services

C-BIRDS EXPERTS: FEASIBILITY/DEPLOYMENT STUDY: 3 MONTHS

Definition and sizing of the network of airborne infrastructures and measurement instruments tailored to the typology of the city and its specific climatic problems.

C-BIRDS ONE (THE FIRST CAPTIVE BALLOON OF THE CLIMATE BIRDS NETWORK): 6 MONTHS / 1 YEAR

Provision of raw data + determination of medium and long-term climate trends (frequency and intensity of phenomena such as heat islands, rainfall, air quality, evapotranspiration, energy loss, etc.).

Full Services

CLIMATE BIRDS NETWORK: DEPLOYMENT OF THE OPTIMAL NETWORK: PERMANENT INSTALLATION

Hyper-local characterisation of urban microclimates (precise district-by-district maps) and determination of predictive medium- and long-term climate models.

INTERNET OF THE CLIMATE: PRODUCT AVAILABLE AS FROM 2020

Access to a global platform, anonymously combining the aggregated indicators of the various CLIMATE BIRDS networks and enabling a city to be characterised by comparing it with an existing standard climate model

2021

Key advantages provided by Climate City

Capacity to adapt

Optimising expenditure and generating wealt

Public health

In detail
  • Precisely identifying the sources of pollution
  • Improving air quality
  • Reducing risks of respiratory and cardio-vascular diseases
  • Enhancing living conditions
Sustainable and economic development

In detail
  • Creating employment
  • Boosting wealth
  • Reorganising the smart city
  • Inventing the sustainable city
  • Making the city more attractive
Town planning

In detail
  • Adapting the city to local climate risks (flooding, heat islands, etc.)
  • Optimising investments

Each city equipped with a Climate Birds network will host a local operations centre allowing data to be gathered, processed and stored. The centre will also convey data to Climate City centres dedicated to research and modelling of the urban climate.
