France Power Report Q4 2015 - New Study Released
Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "France Power Report Q4 2015", is now available at Fast Market Research
[USPRwire, Fri Oct 23 2015] France's power market is very well developed and dominated by the energy giant EDF. As a mature market we do not expect to see significant growth in generation over the forecast period, though renewables are attracting investment making this a potential growth area. Policy uncertainty relating to the phasing out of nuclear power, which currently accounts for 75% of total generation, could cause further delays for the diversification of France's energy mix, particularly as the new energy bill faces considerable political opposition.
France's thermal generation shrunk by an estimated 1.1% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2014 and is expected to remain flat in 2015. Non-hydro renewables is recording the strongest growth: BMI estimates the use of non-hydro renewables grew by 5.1% in 2014 and we are forecasting an additional 6% growth in 2015 followed by similar growth through to 2024. In 2015 we expect to see a minimal increase of around 0.4% in total generation as growth in renewables is offset by declines in coal and oil generation.

Key Trends And Developments:
The government has reportedly backed plans for domestic energy giant EDF to take a controlling stake in ailing nuclear firm Areva's nuclear core business - EDF made a non-binding offer of EUR2bn though details of the current deal have yet to be finalised. Areva reported a net loss of EUR4.8bn (USD5.3bn) in 2014.
Renewables continue to develop: France-based wind and solar asset manager Greensolver has started a process to buy 65MW of turbines for two wind projects in the country. The company has been appointed by a local energy producer to negotiate supply and maintenance contracts for 26 wind turbines to be installed at the two projects.
