The UMGCCP, Union Métiers of the French Building Federation (FFB) and GRDF, the main gas distributor in France, have signed a 3-year partnership to support companies and heating contractors towards efficient and sober use of energy.
For Pascal Housset: “This initiated partnership makes it possible to pool our respective expertise in order to promote the deployment of innovative technologies, such as the hybrid gas heat pump - the hybrid heat pump -. We share with GRDF the conviction that a diversified energy mix, based on the complementarity of energies and on the advantages of gas and green gas, remains the best solution for the benefit of French consumers. »
For Laurence Poirier-Dietz: “the renewal of this commitment illustrates our common desire to make gas an essential energy for achieving carbon neutrality in buildings, thanks to the boom in green gases. France cannot do without gas to decarbonize the housing sector. »
Maintain a diversity of solutions, essential for a successful ecological transition at an acceptable cost
In collective and individual housing heated by gas, the very high energy performance boiler (THPE) can immediately reduce energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and the bills of individuals and businesses by up to 30%. businesses. The installation of THPE boilers - a technically robust solution - is fully mastered by installers and maintenance professionals alike, at a competitive cost.
Hybrid heat pump, a solution suitable for heating homes under renovation as new...
In individual dwellings already connected to gas, and in new buildings near the gas network, the installation of hybrid heat pumps also makes it possible to decarbonise buildings. The equipment combines a medium-power electric heat pump and a THPE gas boiler thanks to an intelligent regulation system, which allows up to 40% energy savings compared to an old boiler. The hybrid heat pump provides an answer to the necessary question of energy efficiency by combining the advantages of both technologies. This solution perfectly illustrates the necessary complementarity of energies for cost control and customer purchasing power. Compliant with the new environmental regulations for new buildings - RE2020 - the hybrid heat pump is a solution suitable for both renovation and new housing.
... and compatible with green gas
Green gas, renewable energy produced locally from organic matter and regional waste, increases the share of renewable energy in energy consumption. From 2030, renewable gases could represent 20% of gas consumption; in 2050, France has the potential to cover 100% of its gas demand thanks to renewable gases. Green gas is already 100% compatible with gas equipment.
Professionalization of the sector and sharing of expertise, at the heart of the partnership
UMGCCP members will be able to become more professional in order to take advantage of “mentions” to attest to their expertise and their commitment to promoting certain solutions – “hybrid heat pump” or “committed green gas player” designations. The evacuation of combustion products is also a central subject in renovation for collective housing and is the subject of a “smoke pipe” mention.
