WEBINAR - Renewable Heat versus Energy Crisis: a French way

Join this free webinar to learn more about renewable heat and the energy crisis in France.

The French energy policy is often identified with nuclear energy. However, in the last ten years, one of its goals has been to increase the volume of sustainable heat supplied to cities and communities.

The implementation of a range of policies has led to practical results on the ground, with the deployment of district heating based on renewable and recovered heat.

A new report by Carbone4 on renewable heat will be the basis for this webinar, supplemented with highlights on the most recent market developments by FEDENE and AMORCE.

During the webinar, we will specifically address the following questions:

- What is the business outlook for District Heating?
- Is there a French way to drive the heat transition?
- Are existing national measures enough to phase out fossil-based heating?
- Are there lessons for other countries?
