ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts of energy suppliers to help customers in France and Great Britain cut energy consumption. The French government has provided incentives for energy suppliers to improve their customers' energy efficiency. The EDF in France is spending 8% of its £375 million annual R&D budget on energy efficiency, and the proportion is growing. In Great Britain, the government is planning to introduce the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) to encourage companies using 6GWh or more a year to cut their carbon emissions.
