Alongside Barbara Nicoloso, director of the Virage Énergie association and author of the Little Treatise on Energy Sobriety and Baptiste Perrissin Fabert, Executive Director of Expertise and Programs at ADEME, Jean-Charles Colas-Roy, Vice- President of Coénove was able to come back to the importance of sustainably implementing efforts to reduce energy consumption and to perpetuate the good results obtained in recent months by moving from cyclical sobriety to structural sobriety.
This conference was also an opportunity to return to the need to bring together two major challenges in the building sector: ensuring security of supply while accelerating the decarbonization of the fleet.
For Jean-Charles Colas-Roy, Vice-Chairman of Coénove: “The renovation of buildings, the complementarity of energies and the greening of gas are major assets for the decarbonization of the building sector. The SFEC (French Climate Energy Strategy) is a decarbonization roadmap but it is also an imperative of security of supply for the French. Biogas, as a storable, renewable energy produced in France, brings resilience and flexibility to the French and European energy system. The greening of gas has many positive externalities: waste recovery, circular economy, additional income, local jobs, energy independence of the country, storage capacities. As such, it is essential to amplify and support the development trajectory of biogas in France, in the next PPE (Multiannual Energy Program), with a target of 20% renewable gas in 2030.”
