The ecological and energy transition (French acronym: TEE) sector is a major economic issue for France and requires the provision of adapted support, primarily to meet the goals set in the framework of COP21.
Bpifrance, which provided 1,400 companies with credit, guarantees and equity in 2016 for a total of €1.4bn, is positioning as a strategic stakeholder and expert in the financing of TEE companies. With the launch of FIEE, Bpifrance's existing range of financing solutions is complemented by a tool for strengthening equity, dedicated to the development of stakeholders in the sector. The investment strategy targets stakeholders in the renewable energy sector, and also those specialised in energy efficiency and the circular economy.
* ETI are companies with 250 to 4,999 employees and whose annual revenue does not exceed €1.5bn.
