THE FIGARO SELECTION – Technology represents a serious asset for resisting the rise in energy prices. Discover our ten solutions to limit energy losses.
Oil, gas, electricity… The rise in energy prices has been at the center of all attention since the start of the war in Ukraine. “It’s the end of abundance”, announces President Macron! Clearly, we will have to tighten our belts this winter under penalty of suffering from possible current restrictions. As for the tariff shield which limits variations in the cost of electricity, it should stop in February, auguring a 15% increase in the tariff. Fortunately, technology is full of ingenious ideas to limit energy losses. It should be noted that 60% of household energy consumption (electricity, gas or fuel oil) is allocated to heating, i.e. €1,700 on average per year. This is the most important item of expenditure, the one on which we can act most effectively. Essential thermal insulation measures will therefore be applied in parallel with digital solutions.
