Building retrofit potential (ENERFUND)

Tags: Area-based targetingMunicipalities

This project is developing a tool that will rate and score deep renovation opportunities – like a credit score used by banks to rate clients. The tool will be based on a set of parameters such as EPC data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes running, etc. When used by municipalities, this can be used e.g. to prioritise the most energy inefficient buildings for retrofitting.

Consumer empowerment in a smart meter world (SMART-UP)

Tags: Smart metersVulnerabilityEnergy audits

The SMART-UP project encourages the active use of smart meters and in-home displays by vulnerable consumers to change their energy behaviour. Social workers and other frontline staff have been trained to advise and empower vulnerable households to become more energy efficient. The target is to engage 5,000 vulnerable households in total.

French Energy Poverty Observatory (Observatoire National de la Précarité Énergétique - ONPE)

The Observatory takes into consideration the social, energy, health and economic aspects of energy poverty. It is a permanent monitoring and evaluation tool which provides decision-making tools to the government, national agencies, communities, energy providers, associations and professionals working in energy poverty. The Observatory contains different policies and common indicators of enery poverty, aims to better define the concept and to improve the use of observation, analysis, evaluation and intervention tools. It is based on the principles of neutrality, sustainability and statistical reliability.

inBETWEEN simultaneously assists users to identify energy waste, learn how they can conserve energy and motivate them to act. The inBetween solution will help users integrate their building’s connected devices and systems with advanced energy analytics and optimisation services to create a comprehensive recommendation and feed-back solution which will facilitate further behaviour change towards more energy and cost efficient daily routines. This solution will be tested (among others) in 44 social housing apartments in France.

Network for the energy transition (Réseau pour la transition énergétique - CLER)

CLER is a French association for the protection of the environment since 1984. Its objective is to promote renewable energy, energy efficiency and more generally, the energy transition. It coordinates local services for energy efficiency (SLIME) and aims to support local measures fighting against energy poverty by focusing on tailored advice to low-income households via house visits.
