The Syndicat Départemental d’Énergies de la Dordogne, or SDE 24, is a syndicate of communes (Syndicat de communes) made up of the 520 communes of the Dordogne department, which have granted it concessionary authority in terms of electricity distribution since 1993 and gas distribution since 2004. It is, therefore, the Organising Authority for the Public Distribution of Electricity and Gas in the entire Dordogne department. It actively participates in the development of the Périgord region as the second biggest contractor in the department. Today, bolstered by the law on Energy Transition and Green Growth (Transition Energétique et Croissance Verte) adopted on 17 August 2015, the SDE 24 has become the competent institution in the energy sector for all communities in the department. The role of the SDE 24 in supervising the regional Energy, Air and Climate Plans (Plans Climat Air Energie Territoriaux), coordinating energy studies for all public buildings, managing public lighting and deploying the Smart Périgord project have positioned it as an essential player in Dordogne’s energy transition. It is a member of the Syndicat Mixte Périgord Numérique (Digital Périgord Mixed Syndicate) for the deployment of fibre optic and is the competent authority for the deployment of charging stations for electric vehicles.
In Dordogne, the SDE 24 is organising the installation of 148 charging stations in 113 of the department’s communes.
