The CUBE competition, to engage companies
What exactly is the CUBE competition?
The CUBE competition, organized by the IFPEB for the past 5 years at the national level, is the largest collective mobilization to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions without major work but rather by mobilizing teams!
CUBE Paris La Défense is first and foremost a fun challenge to mobilize companies in the area to reduce the energy consumption of their buildings.
But how do you get companies to participate? The idea is simple: to do positive ecology, on the ground and in an entertaining way. The principle? Companies, schools, buildings or even coworking spaces compete for a year (in a friendly way, of course!) to save as much energy and CO2 as possible, all in a playful and educational spirit.
Saving energy and CO2 is becoming a national sport! A real championship, with its leagues, its teams, its captains, its undisputed referee who reads the meters, its prize list and its champions. It will have the same emulation, the same federating spirit and the same atmosphere as a soccer or rugby championship!
Objective: get ahead of the ELAN law
The ELAN law requires all players, private and public, to reduce the energy consumption of their buildings by 40% by 2030, 50% by 2040 and 60% by 2050.
Participants must therefore show ingenuity to achieve this and try to win a medal at the end of the competition year.
By joining this great initiative, Paris La Défense continues and intensifies the actions around its new strategic direction with the primary objective of mobilizing the actors of the business district around environmental issues and dividing by 2 the territorial greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

The 2021-2022 results
The CUBE competition was launched in December 2021 at Paris La Défense Arena with 1,000 companies, cities and schools participating to reduce their energy consumption. For the 2021-2022 season of the Cube competition, the IFPEB inaugurated its first special "territory" league in partnership with Paris La Défense!
By mid-season, energy savings averaging 7.1% were already being measured, in parallel with the national competition, which averaged 9.9%. At the end of the season, no less than 15% of energy savings have been achieved by the 13 participating companies, and this on more than 750 000 m² of buildings!
Registration for the new season is open!
Paris La Défense and the IFPEB are joining forces once again to launch the second edition of the CUBE Paris La Défense competition, which will begin on January 1, 2023!
For this second year of competition, the stakes are even higher. Indeed, in the current context of energy crisis, this league of the French Energy Savings Championship aimed at users of Paris La Défense has a very special resonance. And for this new edition, Paris La Défense hopes to beat this record!
