Social innovation for energy progress

The Foundation has created a social entrepreneurship platform that supports the emergence of innovative models aimed at improving access to energy efficiency for all. Today, the platform brings together around 30 social entrepreneurs, startups and non-profit, academic, technical and financial partners. The platform supports social entrepreneurs’ initiatives with financial aid, advice or technical services. It also provides a space to connect and share ideas that helps encourage the development of projects created, funded or conducted collaboratively.

Renovating precarious jointly owned properties

One of the most recent, especially innovative, projects to date is the feasibility and financing study carried out under the new social impact contract of renovating precarious jointly owned properties. Proposed by the action tank Entreprise & Pauvreté, the project involves launching an ambitious energy retrofit project in six jointly owned properties at only moderate cost to residents while involving inhabitants in managing their property. The program will be funded by a private investor who will be reimbursed by the ANAH (French National Housing Agency) if the project’s objectives are reached.
