The Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) Occitanie, in partnership with Ademe, offers support to companies wishing to boost their energy efficiency. The Objectif énergie Programme covers advisory services, energy visits, trainings, and the set-up of an energy community.

Energy information: CCI advisors can provide technical and regulatory information, analysis of invoices and energy contracts, contacts for expert providers, information on financial aid schemes, and support on grant application (EU, Ademe, BPI, etc.).

The energy visit provides information about consumption (main uses) and how to improve energy tracking, management and action plans. Visits take place in three basic stages:

  • Preliminary contact, with the collection of documents (invoices, studies, etc.)
  • Visit to the site (1/2 day) with analysis of important energy consumption items:
    • Process: water; compressed air; steam; cold; engines; thermal
    • Building: atmosphere; heating; lighting
    • Management: management; interview…

The consultant gives a tailored assessment of the energy situation and 'first-level' recommendations for energy consumption.

The energy community targets all energy interlocutors identified in companies. It offers a place to discuss best practices with other companies, access technical and regulatory information, opportunity to participate in forums and on-site visits, and benefit from a network of experts. The CCI also offers energy training: three-day courses to learn how to internalise energy management in the company.
