Climate and Energy Action Plan

Paris’ district energy targets are articulated in its updated Climate and Energy Action Plan (2012). The district heating network should use 60% renewable or recovered energy by 2020, sourced primarily from local energies (geothermal, solar thermal, solar PV, waste-to-energy and heat recovery from industry, drains, metro, etc.), with potential evaluated at 367 GWh in 2020.
