    France likely a frequent power importer in years to come

    Dependence on its neighbors during peak winter demand could accelerate if France fails to develop renewables further or extend the lifespan of its 58 nuclear reactors, while cross-border exchange capacity continues to grow.
    These are the trailblazers of the Paris Climate Accord.


    Data from the finance ministry showed France spent 290 million euros ($307 million) on electricity imports in January, compared with 56.5 million euros for the same month in 2016. France passed an ambitious energy law in 2015 with a target of cutting the share of nuclear in its electricity mix to 50 percent by 2025 from 75 percent currently, while investing in renewables and efficiency to curb consumption and heat loss.
    Although the share of renewables has increased to about 16 percent, it lags its peers and is well below the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) average of 24 percent, the IEA said in its January review of French energy policies.
    This article 9 months old but exposes that France cannot power it's own nation.....but has every f'n opinion on how we should power ours.


    Independent candidate Emmanuel Macron, the frontrunner to win the presidency, plans to stop coal-power generation by 2022. He would keep the 50 percent nuclear target while launching 26 GW of renewables development. The cornerstone of Macron’s energy plan is 15 billion euros of investments with objectives that include immediate help for low-income earners to renovate about 2 million old homes to cut heat loss and curb consumption.
    The article published prior to this Mama's Boy winning the French election. Macron's plan....was 15billion euros of investment..including the economic growth policy of helping low income earners renovate their homes.....

    There is no technology even close to being viable to replace fossil fuels to power the world, it just cant be done today. So those that neglect their fossil infrastructure that produces power are going to be SCREWED

    Not true, as one grain of salt can power a house for months, as it has been claimed...

    Instead of building solar panels to create a wall in countries needing to vet protected...

    Tesla towers, and even the Egyptians knew of the use of tools, for blocks were made.

    The real actual lie is mankind has never known any other resources, but who created.
