Energy efficiency has become a French and European priority because of its multiples benefits: job creation, increased energy independence and reduced greenhouse emissions. On top of that, building´s energy efficiency is the top priority and households represent largest untapped saving potential as well as the focu of this thesis. Currently any successful energy efficiency offer would require a financially attractive, simple, sexy solution. For this reason, this master thesis will focus on exploring a financially appealing alternative for households, potentially offering longer maturities, lower interest and more flexibility. To do so, this research paper will combine several global best practices and adapt them to the French regulatory, political and competitive context to develop a theoretical on-bill repayment and energy efficiency loan securitisation framework, which aims to address main barriers to mass energy efficiency implementation. Later, the feasibility of such framework will be assessed and finally its potential to increase demand evaluated.
