Paris 2024 has set up expert committees to address specific Games-related challenges and bring together key institutional stakeholders: one such committee is the Energy Council. Chaired by the Paris 2024 Chief Executive Officer and the Director General for Energy and Climate at the French Ministry for the Ecological Transition, the Energy Council is made up of representatives from the private and public sectors, including Solideo, French electricity and natural gas distributors, the French energy regulatory commission, and local authorities.
The Council meets at least twice a year. Its main goals are to:
- Develop a framework through which risks related to the resilience of networks and the supply of electricity and gas for the Games can be understood, assessed, prioritised and presented for review by the appropriate authorities to enable decision-making and the issuance of permits.
- Work with French government agencies and departments to establish a process to manage risks related to the supply of energy to Games sites.
