Certificats d’Economie d’Energie in France
The system of energy savings certificates (CEE) was created by the energy law of 13/07/2005 (PAPA law), and is one of the main political tools in France for controlling energy demand. The primary goal is to achieve energy savings in the construction, industry, agriculture and transport sectors, and meet France’s commitment within the European Union to improve of at least 27% the energy efficiency by 2030, compared to the forecasted scenarios.
How does it work?
This system is based on a three-year energy saving obligation imposed by the public authorities to energy suppliers. To receive a CEE they are therefore encouraged to actively promote energy efficiency among energy consumers: households, local authorities or professionals.
The CEE mechanism is open also to other market players, that can also undertake energy efficiency projects, receive the CEE, and sell them in the market, thus creating a market mechanism.
How can we work together?
We are active in the primary and secondary CEE markets.
We actively trade CEE, we provide liquidity and we help companies in achieving their energy efficiency goals.
