What is the role of the Directorate General for Energy and Climate (DGEC)?

Created in 2008 and attached to the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, the Directorate General for Energy and Climate (DGEC) defines and implements policy relating to energy, raw materials for energy and combating climate change and atmospheric pollution.

The DGEC introduces control and distribution measures for energy products and raw materials. It ensures that public service missions in the field of energy are carried out correctly. It coordinates with political, economic and social bodies to prepare and carry out the French climate change prevention and adaptation programme. 

The DGEC also has a “Hydrogen” mission. Directly attached to the Directorate General, it suggests and implements actions to do with the development of decarbonised hydrogen and its associated industries.
