Energy Efficiency Description:In the framework of the National Programme to Improve Energy efficiency, the focus has been on the implementation of Local Information Centres ("Points Info-Energie") throughout the country to inform local people and small companies about energy efficiency. ADEME set up these local centres and by September 2001, 41 were in operation. The target was to have 84 centres by the end of 2001 and 150 by the end of 2002. The network is organised through a 30% funding in partnership between ADEME and local or regional authorities.

Five hundred people will be recruited to operate this network with a funding of €15,240 per year per person.
