It is called the electrification of uses”.

A green fund of two billion euros at the national level

State support for local authorities has clearly not eluded his wishes.

In 2022, it has mobilized 13 million euros through DETR (equipment grant for rural areas) and about 5 million euros through DSIL (local investment support grant). Some will say it’s too much and some will say it’s not enough. Let me just say that this is almost two and a half times more than in 2012, these funds went from 7.5 million euros to DETR in 2012 to 18 million euros to DETR and DSIL in 2022.

In this green fund, 2 billion euros have been allocated at the national level for local authorities to finance the environmental transition in the areas.

A stable and strong economy

The highest level of poverty in Normandy

However, “if the economic situation in the department has been generally good so far,” Orne faces “this problem.” significant level of poverty” : 15.1% households, “it The highest in the Normandy region ».

In 2023, the prefect therefore assured that “the State and its partners will remain with the most deprivations”.

Sébastien Jallet added that supporting fragile or precarious people “is about ensuring their basic right to have a roof over their heads”. “We have to be special this winter vigilance against homelessness. In addition to the places intended for the reception of Ukrainians (not taken from general legal systems), there are 95 emergency accommodation places in Orne.

Here they are in 2022 6368 calls were answered by 115 19,200 per night in the proposed accommodation structures. “In 2022, 72 people who were homeless or housed were able to obtain permanent housing.”

“90 km/h is not the cause of accidents”

Before the prefect, Christophe de Balor also sent his wishes. Not surprisingly, he noted currently its battle: 90km/h limit on Ornes roads. “The number of victims has decreased by about 30% on average over the last ten years. 2022 is the best year, unfortunately we still have 19 road deaths on our roads and that is still too high. The reasons are manifold: alcohol, drugs, medication, inappropriate behavior or just death.

So don’t come and tell me that 90 km/h is the cause of accidents. This provision was unanimously adopted by the Departmental Council, and I intend to perpetuate it.

Energy transition map

In 2023, the Department’s president announced that he “wants to play the energy and climate transition card to the end.” Fossil fuels are more or less doomed in the long run. Therefore, we have to turn to other sources. We are working on this by funding and prioritizing new energy sources such as wood energy recovery by promoting the electric car in car sharing.”

The theme, he concluded: “As Delphine Batho suggested, we want to get out of growth that means less wealth for our country. I’ve chosen my camp: grounded growth, which some call “Green Growth” and which reconciles sobriety and growth. This is the purpose of our activity within the framework of the Climate Plan that we are implementing. »
