Recovery and Resilience Plan/ Ecology and Biodiversity / Industry decarbonisation

Last updated: 18 March 2022

As part of the French Resilience and Recovery Plan, the French government stated specific measures to reduce carbon emissions in the industry sector (responsible for 20% of carbon emissions in France). 


In order to so, several calls for projects have been settled and will be funded with a budget of EUR 1.2 billion over three years.


In 2020: 

- Call for projects from end August to mid-October, for energy efficiency investments of more than EUR 3 million

- Call for interest from end August to mid-November for investments in procedure transformation

- Call for projects related to low carbon heating, end August to mid-October 2020 


In 2021 and 2022: 

- Call for investments in energy efficiency and transformation procedures for emissions reductions

- Call for projects regarding low carbon heating 


The objective is to invest in industrial processes that would be less polluting (ex: electrifying procedures that currently function on fossil fuels) and to financially compensate for the additional surcharge in decarbonised energy, compared to fossil fuels.
