The Agency for Environment and Energy Management (ADEME), responsible for the implementation of the Climate Plan to fight against global warming, will see 20% of its credits 2005 investments frozen by Bercy. ADEME has few own resources. Its budget is fed by three ministries, Ecology (70% of the total budget), Industry and Research. 56,5 million euros 202 million investment loans (program appropriations in budget jargon), available to ADEME by the Ministry of Ecology, will be frozen, sources said. Those from the Ministry of Industry (€ 35,5 million) are also likely to bear the brunt of the "fiscal control" in progress.
As against the appropriations of the Ministry of Research (€ 14,9 million), plus 40 million granted to ADEME under Plan clean vehicles will not be affected. In total, the public institution will not have to 2005 only about 235 million, against 292,4 million provided earlier this year to launch new multiannual programs to promote energy saving and renewable energy and recycling of waste.
Last year, ADEME initially disposed euros 253 million for its investments before a cancellation of 74 million during the year. The payment appropriations to finance the investment programs initiated in previous years, also face fiscal austerity. 70 million should miss this year ADEME to honor its commitments from the beginning of the decade.
