As well as supporting the wood energy sector, Orne Council has, since 2009, been committed to the following activities:

  • energy savings in the department
  • the promotion and production of renewable energies

Information on all the departmental grants available in these areas can be found in the full regulations.

Déchiquetage de bois

Orne Council is particularly active in the chipped wood sector. This energy has one of the lowest greenhouse gas emission rates available and is a source of energy independence at reasonable cost.

The council also supports actions designed to reduce energy consumption (especially actions run by local authorities).

Finally, it regularly holds information meetings and work groups to encourage the set-up of energy-saving and renewable energy production projects.
