Within the the European framework, France has committed to a 20% reduction of its GHG emission by 2020 compared with 1990, and reaching the “factor 4” by 2050. The 2005 POPE Act (the French Energy Policy Guidance Act) makes climate change a priority of the energy policy, setting out a 3% yearly reduction of our country’s GHG emissions. This means combining energy efficiency and restraint, as is highlighted by the first chapter of the “energy transition roadmap”.
