France

In March 2016, Energiesprong was launched in France. The team is hosted by the sustainability  consultancy GreenFlex. Specialised in helping organisations to accelerate their social and environmental transition, GreenFlex has set up a market development team of 7 people to adapt and implement the Energiesprong approach with local stakeholders.

Projects

So far, around 20 housing associations have shown interest in the project and many solution providers and facilitators have become regular attendees and of the workshops and participating members of the project committee. Two housing associations have already launched the process to build the first 22 Energiesprong refurbishments (Vilogia and ICF Habitat), and four others are considering launching pilots soon. Vilogia has already issued the related call for tender and will award the contract for the refurbishment of 10 houses in March. ICF Habitat has also issued its call for tender in March and award the contract for the refurbishment of twelve houses in June.
