The activities tend to cover all sectors of consumption through some adapted means. Special measures are focused on informing and raising awareness of households (Guichets de l’Energie)on training of Energy Managers in the service industries (offices, hospitals, schools), on professional training (learning tools), on energy accountancy (tertiary sector and industry).
