BMI View: Nuclear power will remain the dominant electricity source in France by generating over 75% of total output over our 10-year forecast period until 2025. The highest growth in capacity additions will come from non-hydropower renewable, bolstered by stringent emission targets hampering increasingly unprofitable thermal power sources.

Latest Updates and Structural Trends
  • The French government stated it will commence the closure of the Fessenheim nuclear plant amid concerns and protests by Germany and Switzerland regarding the plant's safety. We remain cautious on our nuclear forecasts, as conflicting statements regarding the plant's closure have been made before. We will factor the decrease in generation in if the closure commences.
  • GE has stated that operations at the Bouchain combined-cycle plant are expected to start mid-2016, after the first fire of the 9HA gas turbine was successfully achieved in December 2015.
  • The French government has launched a tender for the construction of small hydropower projects totalling 60 megawatts (MW) of small hydropower capacity.
  • A total of 180MW of biomass-fired capacity is expected to be procured between 2016 and 2018. The limited target is due to concerns over the sustainability of large-scale biomass projects, as a result of their impact on domestic forestry management.
  • UK-based company Intertek has been awarded the contract for environment and planning support for the FAB interconnector project between France and the UK. Construction is expected to commence later in 2016 and be completed in 2019.
