Investments for the Future


Updated 02/21/2018

In 2010, ADEME was awarded responsibility for credits of the major national loan, which was at that time split between 4 key programs.

In 2014, due to the success achieved, the agency was awarded a new wave of credits in the Investments for the Future program (PIA), enabling it to continue and extend its action. The French State has thus awarded ADEME over €3.3 billion dedicated to implementing the Ecological and Environmental Transition. The PIA is a genuine tool for industrial policy which acts as a catalyst for green growth. It finances innovative projects of all sizes to create and develop the industrial sectors of the future. As part of the program, ADEME is involved in the following topics:
