The energy grant "Coup de pouce économies énergie" applies to household energy saving spendings, such as isolation, or the replacement of coal, oil and non-condensing gas boilers with renewable alternatives. The amount of the grant depends on the household's income. It is distributed by energy providers and other companies which have signed the "Coup de pouce" convention. The renovation has to be conducted by certified installers. The scheme was originally in place for a year and has since then been extended. Currently (January 2020), applications are open until 31 December 2020. IEA/IRENA Global Renewable Energy Policies and Measures Database © OECD/IEA and IRENA, [November 2020]
