France unveils measures to decrease energy use


Eiffel tower without its lightsHere is another post I wrote for Cleantechies, this time on energy conservation :
” Even after the election of François Hollande as President of France, an energy conservation measure of the previous government will be implemented.”

” The Sarkozy government wanted to require shops and offices to turn off their unnecessary lights at nights. This will be effective as of July 1, 2013. All nonresidential buildings will be required to shut off their lights (…) by 1 a.m.”

While this measure is tiny compared to what has to be done on energy conservation, let’s hope the current government will go forward in this direction. As usual, please enjoy and share !
