While touring northern France together with Marie Blandin of the Agence Regionale de l'Energie, European Union energy commissioner Edith Cresson regretted the French government's insistence that applications for Thermie funding be vetted by the industry ministry before proceding to Brussels. She and Blandin described it as a "burden" not borne by applicants from other countries, echoing the sentiments of Jacques Vernier, mayor of the city of Douai and chair of the French agency for energy and environment, ADEME. He made a similar comment recently to the Comité de Liaison des Energies Renouvelables.
