G20 Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures

France

Description: France adopted its third National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP), which targets final consumption to be 131 Mtoe in 2020, against 155 Mtoe of current (without international air transport). The main energy saving measures are expected to save 20.5 Mtoe of energy in 2020. Energy savings amount to 9 Mtoe between 2007 and 2012, of which 5.8 Mtoe coming from residential heating.
The 2005 energy law aimed to reduce final energy intensity by 2%/year by 2015 and implemented energy savings obligations for energy companies, with the possibility of trading energy savings certificates.

National energy efficiency target: NEEAP 2014 targets to decrease final consumption by 15% in 2020.
Target year: 2020
