Emmanuel Macron’s government has this week provided further details on its plan to establish France as a green economic leader, unveiling proposals to invest €20bn in a range of clean technologies. The proposals were yesterday presented by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe as a key part of the government’s new €57bn investment plan for the period from 2018 to 2022. The plan would see €9bn earmarked for energy efficiency programmes, €7bn dedicated to renewables projects, and a further €4bn provided to support the roll out of ultra low emission vehicles. The largest tranche of funding will be targeted directly at improving the thermal efficiency of low income households and enhancing the energy efficiency of public sector buildings.
