Time: 15h00-16h00 Central European Time (check your local time)

After the Fukushima accident, a national debate regarding French energy transition was launched. A policy goal of reducing nuclear electricity generation from 75% to 50% share of total generation was established. Since the year 2013, electricity consumption has stabilized in France, the share of renewable sources continues to grow and there is a high level of hydropower production. Thus, means of conventional thermal generation are rarely used. In addition, electricity generation and capacity continue to increase as the country remains a net energy exporter. This webinar analyses past, present and future of the country from an energetic point of view.
