Cozzano: a sustainably Smart Village

Cozzano is a municipality of 270 inhabitants, located in the high valley of Taravo in South Corsica. The village began its energy transition 20 years ago by investing in sustainable production. Through the Smart Village concept, local authorities wish to put digital technologies at the service of energy sustainability to accelerate the village’s transition.

Cozzano’s goal is to become a positive-energy village, producing twice the amount of (sustainable) energy it consumes. Wishing to continue its efforts in sustainable development, the municipality of Cozzano got involved in the Smart Paesi project – literally Smart Village in Corsican. Thanks to the sustainable energy production already in place, this local project intends to accelerate the transition of Cozzano using digital tools. By using connected devices and collecting environmental data, Smart Paesi’s partners want to increase the climate and energy resilience of the village.

The village of Cozzano is an example of an integrated policy for sustainable development and resource management at the local level. The municipality has succeeded in developing green energy using the natural resources of the village and in involving the inhabitants and various local stakeholders in a sustainable approach. Some of the digital tools developed by Smart Paesi are particularly relevant to the resilience of forests and agriculture in the mountains.

Discover in our good practice the energy mix of Cozzano to understand how the municipality is becoming a positive energy village and how the Smart Paesi project supports this sustainable transition.
