The European Climate Foundation asked Harris Interactive to run two studies about how the Energy Transition is perceived by French entrepreneurs and citizens. 1,800 French leaders and citizens answered Harris Interactive’s questions between April and May 2013.
The surveys, conducted by the European Climate Foundation in conjunction with the French Economic, Social Affairs and Environment Council, are the first major opinion polls conducted in France on the issue.
If not comprehensive, this study points out very interesting results. Thus, the findings show that most of inerviewed people believe the energy transition will have a positive long-term impact on the French economy through technological innovation, new markets’ access, firms’ attractiveness and on employment.
