PROPEL BY MIPIM: SUSTAINABILITY AND QUALITY OF LIFE AT THE HEART OF PROPERTY INNOVATION
These companies will be exhibiting at Propel by MIPIM: Métropole du Grand Paris, Paris & Co, E.ON, Saint Gobain, Schneider Electric, ArcelorMittal and numerous startups

Paris, 6 July, 2020 – Trending strongly at Propel by MIPIM this year, sustainability and quality of life are two aspirations among city-dwellers that the health crisis has underscored recently by calling our lifestyles into question. From biodiversity, energy saving, and vegetalisation to making it easier for users to buy, rent, build, and manage real estate, the exhibitors at Propel by MIPIM will all be proposing solutions tailored to current user preoccupations.
 
Organized by Reed MIDEM, Propel by MIPIM will be the flagship event of La Week on September 14 and 15. It will take place at the CENTQUATRE in Paris, bringing together the leaders in property, technology and public authorities on the theme of innovation. There will also be an exhibition area, conferences and networking opportunities.
 
The diversity of innovations proposed by Propel by MIPIM exhibitors as a response to the challenge of sustainability is the key attraction of this event, which brings together both international companies and startups. Innovation is also a central topic among public authorities, with Métropole du Grand Paris attending Propel as an exhibitor along with the incubator Paris & Co. Investors and asset managers will also be present in the exhibition area with Keys AM (France) and PI Labs (UK).
 
Reducing environmental impact
Innovating to reduce environmental impact is driving companies such as Accenta (France), which proposes to use renewable energy produced in summer to heat buildings in winter, and Schneider Electric, which uses automation and digitalization to manage energy consumption in a more controlled manner. BeeOdiversity (Belgium) is developing projects combining bee engineering, technology and the involvement of all stakeholders, while Up4Green offers expertise in integrating plant life into property projects and the energy company E.ON (Germany) focuses on smart grids and customer solutions to drive the energy transition in Europe, including major projects such as Citigen in London.
 
Intelligent materials
Saint Gobain will be exhibiting its new SageGlass® glazing, which is electronically tinted to adapt to a building’s sunlight and ambient temperature. This improves the comfort and well-being of the occupants while considerably reducing the amount of energy consumed for air conditioning, heating and lighting.

Another international exhibitor, ArcelorMittal will present  Steligence®, a radically new concept for using steel in construction to create a more sustainable life cycle for buildings and make them easier to assemble and potentially dismantle.
 
Flexibility, simplicity and comfort
Making life easier for users is the ambition of Cubicasa (Finland) which helps design a detailed plan of a residential or office space simply using a smartphone. Welcomr (France) offers a dematerialized and secure solution for managing remote access to a space or a building. While Roomhero (Germany) will design and fit out homes and offices using a fully online process.

New talents as well as established companies will have their say in jointly building a better urban environment” says Nicolas Kozubek, Director of Propel.
