Energiesprong is growing in France! 64 stakeholders are now committed to retrofit 6,550 houses
A second wave of stakeholders have signed a charter to support the Energiesprong programme in France. 64 organisations signed the collective agreement on 9th October during the 79th Congress of the USH (Social Housing Union). The charter favours the large-scale roll out of net zero energy retrofit in social housing.
Energiesprong, a new standard for guaranteed net zero energy use, high comfort and a smooth implementation process, originated in the Netherlands and is now growing to be a worldwide movement with France being a successful frontrunner.
2 pilots delivered, 2 pilots procured, 2 others at the procurement stage
Transition Zero, a project funded by the European Horizon 2020 programme, has supported the adaptation of the Energiesprong approach to France and the UK for the last 2.5 years. In France in 2018 2 pilots were delivered, 2 pilots were procured, and 2 others are at the procurement stage. The two completed pilots, led by Vilogia in Hem and ICF Habitat Nord Est in Longueau (both in the north of France), were co-financed by the European E=0 project which is part of the Interreg NWE programme.
14 social housing associations, 37 solutions providers and 13 facilitators
The charter initiative will help build a bigger market for high quality affordable net zero energy retrofits. Greater demand for retrofits will, in turn, drive down the costs involved. The process in France started with the first two pilots. Volume roll out will also help accelerate progress towards strategic government targets. These include plans to combat climate change, renovate older homes and eradicate fuel poverty within 10 years in France
In this context, 14 social housing associations, 37 solutions providers and 13 facilitators have come together to encourage regional adoption of the Energiesprong approach:
- 14 social housing associations committed to refurbish 6550 houses before 2023, respecting Energiesprong’s performance specification;
- 37 solution providers committed to produce high quality and competitive proposals to retrofit homes to the Energiesprong specification;
- 13 facilitators committed to examine all proposals and maximize the levers for success at a European, national a local level, to facilitate the roll out.
These are stakeholders that signed the charter as of 9 October 2018
