STUDY. The program “Living better” of the national Agency of habitat (Anah) allows you to create, each year, approximately 17,000 equivalent full-time jobs. It is this which emerges from a work developed by the firm Actions.
“You can be a winner on the comfort, and create jobs !” It is White Guillemot, director-general of the Anah, who reports Batiactu. His body seems to have provided the proof. Thus, according to a survey conducted by the cabinet as a Gesture, the program “Living better” is at the origin of 17,000 full-time equivalent jobs (FTES) created or maintained each year.
As a reminder, this device helps renovate energy for approximately 50,000 homes per year. “Gesture has studied the reference data, and interviewed several actors of the renovation in relation to the creation or retention of jobs”, explains White Guillemot, director-general of the Anah, Batiactu. “It is clear that, for a million euro of works funded, six equivalent full-time jobs are created in the area of the individual house, and nine jobs in co-ownership.” These new jobs relate to the craftsmen and building contractors, but also indirect jobs (manufacturing) and project management (see box below). “More than 80% of sites are made with the local employment”, said Blanche Guillemot.
Progress energy average of 40% per project
“The aid that we offer also have a qualitative dimension”, adds White Guillemot. “In 70% of cases, the isolation of combls and the roof is added to the initial project. The average gain of energy on the operations financed is 40%.” Condominiums, also specifies the study, the existence of the program “Living better” enables you to “toggle” the vote “in favour of the renovations generally ambitious, because it integrates nearly always a insulation of exterior walls, which represent more than two-thirds of the energy savings in condominiums”.
A year of the program “Living better” is in employment,…
– 7500 full-time equivalent (FTE) maintained or created for craftsmen and construction companies ;
– 900 FTE for operators and contractors ;
– 3.500 FTES for the business of manufacturing and distribution of materials (e.g., insulation) and equipment (windows, heating equipment) ;
– 5.500 FTE for the upstream sub-sectors of manufacturing (components of windows and boilers) jobs and “indirect” (energy, tools, etc.).
