Description:The French National Strategy for Research and Development in the field of Energy is issued by the ministry in charge of energy (Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development, National Planning and Development) and the ministry in charge of research (Ministry for Higher Education and Research) according to Article 10 of the Programme Law on the orientations of the energy policy of 13 July 2005. The Strategy aims to increase energy security, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change. It thus seeks to promote RD&D in technologies and energy sources that limit GHG emissions and/or increase energy efficiency. In the field of energy efficiency, the Strategy emphasises RD&D in the following areas: ?Energy storage and transmission, particularly in light of developing self-sufficient independent renewable energy sources that will require both storage and systems to connect the energy to a grid. ?Technologies and training to cost-effectively improve energy efficiency in buildings, particularly existing buildings. ?Transport, particularly personal vehicles. Both new technology (electric cars, fuel cells) and increased efficiency of existing technology is to be highlighted. ?Fuel cells and hydrogen production.
