Sustainable energy, or renewable energies (RE), represent the future of energy. Many of them are now economically viable and currently being deployed on the territories in order to reach the European objectives: 20% of energy consumption from renewable energies in 2020. According to the French law on the energy transition for growth 22% of energy consumption in 2030: 40% of electricity production, 38% of final heat consumption, 15% of final fuel consumption and 10% of Consumption of gas.
The objective of Exenci is to contribute to these objectives, but also to transmit and disseminate French know-how to the countries lacking skills in these areas.
Sometimes put in the background, energy efficiency (EE) is the other side of the energy transition: the control of energy. EE and EnR need to be addressed together to ensure effective public policy. With the “Energy-Climate” package 2008, the European Union has set itself the objective of improving energy efficiency by 20% by 2020. The priority axes are: buildings (residential and tertiary), transport and industry (for which energy control is a competitive advantage).
The challenge on this theme of education and communication is to educate the consumers in particular (in complement with infrastructure improvements)
Energy management is a set of processes required to continuously improve the energy performance of an organization, taking into account the types of energy, uses, consumption and equipment.
Exenci is an expert in setting up or monitoring energy management systems at the operational level with companies or organizations –or at the strategic level to support public policies in this field.
Exenci, of course, has mastery of standards such as ISO 50001 – Energy management systems and other standards relating to energy management or counting (ISO 50 015, X30-147, ISO 50 006).

Financial and regulatory instruments
Exenci has mastered the entire range of public policies from the conception of their strategy to their implementation. This involves all the instruments accompanying energy efficiency policies: first by designing the regulations considering the local context while fitting into existing institutional frameworks
– then by producing or creating various specific financial instruments to support the efforts of the public and private sectors and users.
In several countries, we have participated to the development of public policies for the establishment of energy audits – or to the establishment of loans, grants and other financial mechanisms to increase green investments. Through our various projects, we mastered the implementation of innovative fiscal and financial incentives measures and more generally of financial mechanisms and market instruments. We always use holistic analyzes taking into account not only the technical and financial aspects but also the economic, social-cultural, geographical, etc.
Indeed, we are convinced that to be relevant, each public policy must be adapted to the context in which it is implemented and must be based on the reality of the ground.
We are already working within the framework of French and European development assistance, in partnership with public organizations and international development banks. We intervene on the drafting of the projects documents, on the technical and organizational aspects of the technical assistance, on the writing of regulatory texts and on the effectiveness or organization of the financial instruments.
The communication actions that must be implemented within the framework of public policies must not be neglected. They often constitute a transversal element inherent in all institutional projects.
This communication consists of several stages:
Identifying targets and communication needs
- Designing the strategy and drafting the communication plan
- Implementing the actions foreseen in the communication plan
- Designing the communication and awareness-raising tools – which can be both technical (eg by creating tools for the employees of industries or SMEs to put in place good practices in their companies) or strategical.
The communication also addresses the institutional communication required in many projects and public policies funded by national or international organizations. Reporting and assessment are often required toward the commissioning institutions. These actions also require a specific know-how that Exenci has accumulated through its missions
Exenci chooses with care its partners in France and abroad. With them, we cover all the energy-related sectors including the industry, the construction, the buildings and the territories. Our partners are rigorously selected and allow us to mobilize every specific expertise and thus offer our customers comprehensive services.
