January 1, 2024: changes (already) known


MaPrimeRénov’ is developing…

The incentive for energy renovation will be divided into two pillars:

  • Efficiency, for eliminate energy-intensive heaters (oil, coal or gas) in favor of heat pumps or even pellet boilers;
  • Performance, for accelerate energy renovations sizes.

The government hopes to achieve 200,000 effective renovations in 2024 (compared to 90,000 in 2022).

Because of this, the global renewal bonus will be more attractive to the most modest households and to owners energy filters.

Another new feature: in order to successfully complete each major renovation project (and get a bonus), households will have to go through the MonAccompagneteurRénov system.

…and MaPrimeAdapt’ begins

This bonus, closely linked to MaPrimeRénov’ (to combine energy renovation projects and those for adaptation to aging), will actually centralize three already existing aids:

  • “Living easy” from the National Agency for Housing (Anah)*,
  • “Habitat of the living environment” of the National Old Age Insurance Fund (Cnav),
  • tax credit for autonomy (which covers up to 25% of the costs associated with the installation of equipment for housing accessibility).

The state plansadapt 680,000 homes to aging over the next ten years.

* This assistance remains valid for all procedures initiated in 2023.

Gas boilers come from SIE

The decision of October 4, 2023 deletes the file Bar-TH-106, which refers to individual boiler of high energy efficiency.

The installation of a water heater is therefore no longer acceptable CEE bonuses (energy saving certificate).

Also to remember…

  • Development a draft multi-year work plan (PPPT) becomes necessary for co-ownership comprising between 51 and 200 parcels.
  • THE Diagnostics of energy efficiency (DPE) of the entire co-ownership, becomes mandatory for buildings with more than 200 units.

Limited environmental bonus

Today, that bonus amounts to €5,000 for the purchase of an electric car (7,000 for low-income households), to which it is added write-off bonus (up to €6,000). Aid that indirectly subsidizes the Chinese car industry, which has a growing influence on sales in France, according to the state.

Exclude from the bonus the vehicles whose production is the most polluting (and the most distant).

A precise list is expected in mid-December…
