What are the transport issues for cities?

Transportation is a core issue for towns and cities. At ENGIE Ineo, we help create transport systems that run more smoothly, are more appealing and cleaner. For our customers, the major issues focus on three points:

  • the energy transition
  • the digital transition
  • new transport modes

We support our customers in creating, extending and modernising transport networks (bus, HQPT, underground, traditional rail and high-speed rail).
In terms of energy supplies, we propose de-carbonised solutions mainly using electricity.
For digital needs, we propose data management solutions via Big Data. We are also interested in new transport modes, such as automated shuttles.

What role does ENGIE Ineo have on the market?

Our role is to support our customers and offer more reliable, cleaner and sustainable transport systems. To achieve this, ENGIE Ineo employs over 1,500 people across all its transport activities in France and other countries. We are positioned as the unique partner for our customers on large-scale projects such as the Tours-Bordeaux LGV high speed line. Our vast portfolio of expertise extends across multiple fields:

  • Supervision systems
  • Signalling
  • Electrification
  • Passenger information
  • Operations support

What place is there for innovation?

At ENGIE Ineo, innovation is not an optional extra, but a rule to live by. We participate in many European research programmes such as BESF (future bus systems), IT for PT (transport communications architecture) and also programmes co-financed by ADEME, such as MI2. Our subsidiaries invest between 7 and 10% of their revenue in R&D. We recently acquired Icomera, active in onboard connectivity and in particular, onboard wireless connectivity solutions for public transport
