This "Maison de l’Energie de Montpellier" (House of energies) is situated in the heart of the city.
Its main missions are to:
* Disseminate information on efficient energy/water use and renewable energies
* Give preliminary technical advice
* Bring together different partners
* Carry out energy audits
Energie-Cités has played an active role in the creation of this new agency by helping the City of Montpellier to find European partners, prepare the project proposal and develop the European co-operation element.
It is mainly financed through the EU Commission’s executive agency (EACI), authorities and the French national energy agency, ADEME.
