National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAP)s set out estimated energy consumption, planned energy efficiency measures, and the improvements individual EU countries expect to achieve. Under the Energy Efficiency Directive, EU countries must draw up these plans every three years.   This document is the 2017 update of the NEEAP for France. It shows measures taken to save energy in buildings. It includes information about the regulations and the incentives for energy efficient new or renovated buildings.

According to  the Association of the European Heating Industry (EHI) – a wider penetration of efficient heat emitters needs to be an integral part of Europe’s ambition to achieve 30% energy efficiency gains by 2030. Promoting efficient heat emitters can improve the efficiency of heating systems as well as enable renewable heat appliances to find their place in the market. A heating system can run most efficiently, when all its components are designed to work together.

The 2016 Clean Energy for all Europeans package of the EU Commission has reinforced the position of energy efficiency policies in the EU’s political agenda. One of the three key objectives of these proposals is to “put energy efficiency first” in the EU’s energy and climate legislations. European policymakers consider energy efficiency to be crucial in reaching the EU’s long-term energy and climate targets.
