EFSI case study: Energy efficiency in residential buildings in France: Energy Performance Contracting to boost investments
Briefing | 6 June 2016
The so-called European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) should unlock additional investment of at least EUR 315 billion over a three year period (2015-2017). One of the projects benefiting from the EU financing is a program that aims to promote energy efficiency in the housing stock through the funding of certain regional/local initiatives supporting energy renovation of private residential buildings in France. This project could be a blueprint for the greater use of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures and thus the reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions and it could also lead the way for future small-scale projects financed by EFSI.
