“At Delta-EE, we have been researching the French energy transition market for over 15 years. After launching our Paris office in 2019 and recruiting a team of talented people, who share our passion for the new energy space, we have decided to dedicate a research team specifically to the French market.

For every aspect of the transition, France is becoming a driving force in Europe, and in some cases the leading country. France has been a pioneer for electrifying heat, and has now the highest number of heat pumps sold per year across Europe. The French PV and self consumption market is set to take off. Innovative energy suppliers are starting to gain some traction, while there is a consolidation at the top of the pyramid, with Total becoming the 3 rd of the big 3 by acquiring Lampiris and Direct Energie. The French connected home and energy management market could see of the fastest growth over the next 5 years in Europe. The Linky smart meters have been deployed at a high pace and now a lot customers can easily have access to their consumption insights. The EV chargepoint market is expected to boom across most charging locations. C&I customers become increasingly targeted with innovative offers from start ups, service companies and energy suppliers. There is a big battle to provide the greenest energy and to prove its local provenance. I could go on arguing about this.

We strongly believe every company involved in the French energy transition should be equipped with the best in class research. Our research will deliver just that to you. It has this unique mix of local expertise, and the European perspective that no one else has, which is critical to understand the moving forces of this market."
