The process is in two phases: 1) energy efficiency assessment of the state's buildings , data consolidation by the state's regional representatives 2) Development and implementation of a strategic plan

Following this audit, a multiyear action plan (2020) is established by combining the different approaches: securing, maintenance, durability of structures and works and improving performance energy. The urgency of actions, the investment costs, energy consumption reduction and environmental gains are assessed.
