Based on a broad national debate on energy efficiency carried out in 2011, the government has announced 27 measures in order to reach the 20% target of energy efficiency by 2020. Those measures include loans at preferential rates for energy efficiency investment in small companies, compulsory extinction of neon signs between 0100 and 0600, loans at preferential rates for the renovation of social housing, grants for the renovation of public lighting of small cities. This debate aims was to go beyond the Grenelle objective, in order to reach the target of the  European Union's climate and energy package.
