EURACTIV France reports that the French government’s MaPrimeRenov’ scheme, which helps households make energy efficiency renovation of buildings is a “resounding success”, France’s ecological transition ministry said on Monday (19 July), hoping many more will apply to the scheme in 2021.
The French government and the office of Environmental Minister Barbara Pompili welcomed the enthusiasm for the energy renovation of buildings at the third national monitoring committee of the France Relance plan on Monday.
The ecological transition ministry called the MaPrimeRenov’ scheme, an emblematic measure of the French recovery plan, a “resounding success”.
The number of applications for the scheme which allows households to finance insulation, heating, ventilation work to reduce energy bills, continues to rise. While only 190,000 applications were submitted last year, 380,000 have been submitted so far in 2021.
