Discover the E=0 pilots in France
The EnergieSprong approach was launched in France in March 2016, by GreenFlex, a firm specialised in helping organisations accelerate their social and environmental transition. GreenFlex has set up a market development team of 7 people to adapt and implement the EnergieSprong approach in France, and works with local stakeholders to do so.
Within the E=0 project, they are working side by side with the housing associations ICF Habitat and Vilogia, who are experimenting the first EnergieSprong refurbishments in France. Vilogia is renovating 10 houses with a consortium led by Rabot Dutilleul Construction, and ICF Habitat is renovating 12 houses with a consortium led by Bouygues. Both projects will be finished by the summer 2018 and will provide precious feedback for the further deployment of EnergieSprong in France.
Those first demonstrators have inspired others: Many housing associations, solution providers and facilitators have shown interest in the project and become regular attendees of workshops and members of the steering committee. 36 of them, among which 9 housing associations, have signed a charter engaging them to contribute to the EnergieSprong dynamics in France, and two new projects have already been launched (by Neotoa and Est Metropole Habitat).
