Project description

Project description


The work of the EIC (Energy Information Centre) mainly comprises two types of activity: receiving the public at the centre and carrying out specific local projects.

Strong points developed so far:
  • taking part in a vast campaign to inform residents about insulation, disseminating the results of the thermographic surveys conducted by the Pays d’Aubagne et de l’Etoile Urban District Authority
  • taking part in the launch of the evaluation of the impact of eco-citizen action on the area initiated by the Urban District Authority
  • contact with most stakeholders in the local solar thermal energy sector, leading to participation by the EIC in setting up training for solar installers, involving installers during site visits and monitoring installations, giving feedback to installers where necessary
  • a strong local foothold (organizing neighbourhood meetings, partnership with a local newspaper, taking part in local events related to energy saving, finding out about local solar thermal installations)
