Against the backdrop of climate change and rising energy costs, METRON, Dalkia, BNP PARIBAS and AWS have decided to collaborate and mobilise their advanced expertise in the “Decarb Fast Track” programme to help industrial companies reduce their energy consumption and collectively reach a reduction target of CO2 emissions.
This program aims to accelerate the decarbonisation of 100 industrial companies through:
- 100 applicant companies will be selected to the “Decarb Fast Track” programme and will receive subsidised access to an innovative energy management and optimization toolbox;
- The implementation of an innovative METRON energy management solution hosted on AWS, at the selected sites, enables the monitoring and analysis in real-time of consumption and emissions;
- A personalised support of selected sites by the METRON, Dalkia and BNP PARIBAS experts over a 2-year period to identify, implement or finance energy performance projects;
- Common reduction targets to accelerate the energy transition of selected industrials. The objective is to save up to 100,000 tons of CO2. This is up to 10% of energy consumption reduction at the selected sites.
Each partner company is contributing to the “Decarb Fast Track” programme financially to support the subsidy. The partners will also support selected companies by making their respective expertise available to industrial sites under the programme. As of November 2022, 20 industrial companies have already expressed interest to implement the “Decarb Fast Track” programme, and, in total, 100 will be selected by the partner companies in the coming weeks in France, and across Europe.
The “Decarb Fast Track” programme also aims to help accelerate the decarbonisation of the industrial sector and inspire more industrial players to implement energy optimisation strategies, a powerful and accessible lever for the energy transition. The “Decarb Fast Track” programme has been recognised by the French government in the industrial section of its National Energy Sobriety Plan. The industrial sector represents around 20% of greenhouse gas emissions in France and the decarbonisation of the industry is a major challenge for both the economy and the environment.
This initiative is intended to be a tangible demonstration of the potential of innovation, designed to help decarbonise the industrial sector. The “Decarb Fast Track” programme also seeks to highlight the driving role that private actors can play in the mobilisation towards ecological transition, through large-scale concrete actions.
