France power markets long-term outlook H1 2015

Report summary

The French power market will continue to be dominated by supply from nuclear - the lasting legacy of a major programme of reactor construction undertaken during the 1970’s to reduce the country’s dependence on imports of foreign fuels. In July 2015, the French government adopted its long-awaited proposal for energy transition to reduce nuclear's share of power supply from its current level of 75% to 50% by 2025.
