This new text completes the list of the many tools put in place by the Prince’s Government to support the actors of Monaco’s energy transition.

Marie-Pierre Gramaglia recalled the purpose of this new regulation: to achieve the Principality’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction objectives. “This regulation is part of the Government’s action in the fight against climate change.The Principality’s ambitious commitment to reduce its GHG emissions requires, to be held, an acceleration of the collective effort” .

Séverine Canis-Froidefond, Director of the DPUM, then made a general presentation of the text (see technical sheet attached), which states in particular:

the ban on fuel oil in 2022 in old buildings
the obligation to carry out energy audits as early as 2022 for buildings built between 1930 and 1990
the obligation to carry out thermal insulation work during certain building rehabilitation works.

Virginie Hache-Vincenot, MTE, closed the press conference by presenting the energy auditing of buildings and the implementation of a subsidy allocated by the Government. Encouraging the anticipation of the statutory audit requirement (2022), the latter can cover up to 75% of the cost of the audit.

An event to follow on our social networks and from tonight on Monaco Info.
