The present article analyses energy requirements for heating and cooling typical urban blocks in the Region Ile de France. The analysis has been designed to be applicable at the agglomeration level in France through an automatic classification of urban blocks. It provides a contrasted view on the incidence of compactness and urban organisation upon energy requirements and potential solar gains.
