About Energem

Energem's origins lie in the creation of the UEM (Usine d'Electricité de Metz) in 1901 with the opening of the Pontiffroy thermal power plant. The UEM became a municipal board with a public service mission in 1925, which allowed it to remain autonomous in the face of electricity nationalization in 1946. However, the liberalisation of electricity markets in 2008 required UEM to restructure, thus leading to the creation of:

  • URM: the power grid operator for the Metz region's
  • Energem: the energy supplier

In 2012, UEM was the largest local independent electricity distribution company in France, with a turnover of 232.9 million euros and 1.7 billion kWh of electricity per year provided to 155,000 customers.

Energem stands out from other electricity suppliers (EDF, Direct Energie, Planete Oui) on two points:

Environmental Impact

Whereas other electricity suppliers offer "green" electricity via the purchasing of renewable energy certificates, Energem produces its renewable electricity directly, thanks to the three hydroelectric plants installed on the Moselle River that belong to the group. Energem's renewable electricity is the same price as EDF regulated tariffs.

Customer Service

Energem will reimburse up to one year subscription if the customer is not satisfied with the service. This warranty covers two commitments:

  • Response within 24 hours to emails (and within five working days for postal mail).
  • Recognition within five days of self-submitted meter readings and consequent bill adjustment

Energem Offers

Energem offers 100% renewable electricity for customers across France, and natural gas supply to customers in the North of France.
