In order to join forces and share their experiences widely to contribute even more to the massification of energy renovation on a national scale, the Third-Party Financing Companies, energy renovation assemblers, formed a national association in early 2022.

Initiated by the Regions and Metropolises, the Third-Party Financing Companies provide integrated solutions to homeowners and condominiums for their energy-efficient renovation projects. In order to amplify their action on a national scale, they formed an association at the beginning of 2022 and, on this occasion, adopted a name to describe their field of activity: SERAFIN for Services territoriaux de Rénovation: Accompagnent et Financement.

The SERAFIN network was founded by :

  • La Régie Régionale du Service public de l’Efficacité Energétique (SPEE) of the Hauts de France Region
  • Ile-de-France Energies
  • Bordeaux Métropole Energies, which develops its offer under the brand FaciRénov
  • Oktave in the Grand Est Region
  • Centre-Val de Loire Energies
  • The Regional Energy and Climate Agency (AREC) of the Occitania Region with its Rénov’Occitanie service
And their partners:

  • Effinergie, the public interest association for the construction and renovation of low-energy buildings, which holds the BBC label
  • Energies Demain, a consultancy specialising in territorial public policies on energy, climate and quality of life, which coordinates the European ORFEE project, which has helped to create the SERAFIN association and aims to make it their resource centre
  • Pouget Consultants, a building and thermal engineering firm involved in the evolution of the rules of the renovation profession

The six Third-Party Financing Companies, founders of the SERAFIN network, are public or semi-public organisations offering integrated technical, financial and support solutions for the energy renovation of housing. These solutions, which drastically simplify the renovation process for households, make efficient renovation accessible to all. Their activity is part of the services provided by “Mon Accompagnateur Renov’”, which is currently being defined by the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
