Eco’Energies is an energy efficiency program developed by the Chamber of Commerce (CCI) Nice Côte d’Azur of the Alpes-Maritimes and Var departments to assist small and medium sized enterprises in the tertiary and industrial sector by facilitating the energetic renovation of their buildings and/or industrial sites.

It is targeted at enterprises in the Alpes-Maritimes and Var departments that are part of the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur (PACA) region, in the south-east of France.

The program is focused on 6 target groups:

  • Hotels
  • Health sector (hospitals and elderly homes)
  • Distribution sector (retail, supermarkets, department stores,…)
  • Logistics sector
  • Industry
  • Office buildings

The CCI pre-identifies the savings potential and invites a number of preselected Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) to develop a proposal for an Energy Performance Contract (EPC). The first phase of the project includes 5 ESCOs, 3 with a national coverage and 2 regional ESCOs.

The program is in its initial stage of development with a number of ongoing projects.

No results on investments or realized savings are available at this stage.

The program is however interesting, as it is one of the only ones in Europe that specifically target the sector of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs).
