Expertise that goes beyond fuel expertise

As the second largest oil distributor in France (9.8 million m3 supplied in 2021), SIPLEC has gained extensive expertise in the field of Energy over the years. 

Our teams SIPLEC – E.Leclerc develop products and services designed to meet all requirements, with regard to quality and performance, at the best price.

  • Individuals: fuel, Clairgaz conditioned gas, domestic heating oil, energy bonus incentive programs, electric charging stations
  • Professionnals: fuels, fuel cards, energy efficiency programs
  • E.LECLERC Stores: natural gas, electricity, PV systems
  • Besides, our subsidiary SODIPLEC, runs a network of 19 motorway service areas throughout France. They offer fuel and retail products at competitive prices, along with catering services. All our private label products (i.e Marques Repères, Sélection d’Experts, Biovillage, Nos Régions ont du Talent, Tissaia) are priced the same price as in E.Leclerc stores.

We believe controlling and mastering our processes is crucial to success. Our energy management systems are tested every year, as part of the annual audits required by our certification ISO 9001-2015 (excluding SODIPLEC).

SIPLEC, Partner in Energy Savings

As a renowned distributor of fuel and heating oil, SIPLEC has been involved in the National Energy Saving Certificates program for years. Back in 2010, our teams introduced a program that paved the way for E.Leclerc to become the first retailer to present Energy Saving Certificates to its customers.

About the Energy Rewards

Since then, we’ve created additional energy-saving incentive projects for the E.Leclerc stores along with other entities, businesses, communities and legal entities. SIPLEC has developed a great deal of specific operations and partnerships on many programs, they promote:

  • Energy renovation programs, in conjunction with the Service d’Accompagnement à la Rénovation Energétique (SARE) in French departments and cities.
  • Soft mobility, in tandem with Karos (carpooling incentives), Alvéole (bicycle parking facilities in public areas), ADMA (French expertise on pedestrian and bicycle issues), SIEL (health prevention for the elderly by including soft mobility in their travel habits).

“Greener” fuels

We’re proud to say that we have been pioneering ” green ” fuels since 1994. Since then we’ve been looking for ways to include plant-based products in fuels, e.g. ethanol, FAME, ETBE.

In addition, we were the first ones to market 3 very specific biofuels, E10, B30 and E85 (“super ethanol”), now available in every E.LECLERC gas station.

All the alcohol and raw materials used to make biofuels comply with the quality and sustainability standards laid down by the European Union. They are free from palm and soybean oil.
