Presentation of the Programme

Nowadays, a major part of energy resources are fossil fuels, which take an extremely long time to renew. The perspective of seeing these resources depleted – even if reserves of coal remain considerable – is already creating tensions. In addition, emissions from these types of resources are major causes of climate chaos.

Renewable energies, which provide an alternative to fossil fuels, remain imperfect. The issue is thus to profoundly reform our ways of life and drastically reduce our energy consumption: an energetic transition based on sobriety, efficiency and a moderate use of renewable energy is our only viable path.
