Description:Funds for energy efficiency investments in industry are available from SOFERGIE, created in 1980 (a group of companies that finances energy-saving investments) to facilitate lease financing for energy management with the hope that this funding would give structure to a body of “third-party investors” who would identify, analyse, carry out and finance investment in “turn-key” energy conservation projects remunerated out of the resulting savings. The Decret n°2002-636 of 23 April 2002 broadens the scope of intervention of authorised companies specialised in the financing of energy efficiency through lease credit (SOFREGIE). In addition to financing equipment, SOFREGIE can also finance associated costs such as construction, land and transport.
