Focus on… Operene
Operene, launched in 2014, is a proven one-stop-shop service for renovating multi-family housing, covering all renovation steps from the financial feasibility study to the coordination of a group of local companies to conduct the works (more than 40 SMEs committed to conduct the renovations), guaranteeing actual energy performance and impacts, up to energy performance contracting when requested by the client.
With over 4000 dwelling renovations to date involving 40M€ of investment, 80% of financial feasibility proposals submitted by Operene resulted in actual renovation works.
Operene service targets multi-family apartment buildings in the private sector and for social housing.
- Homeowners are rarely Operene customers, the targeted customer is the coownership trustee (COT) representing the building co-owners. COT technical background is usually low, and the decision-making process is complex (all decisions must be voted at the qualified majority).
- Operene has no digital platform so far and its operational area is limited to the Rhone-Alpes region in France but a deployment outside this region is under investigation.
