The Energy Transition Act has been passed in France.
The Assembly adopted the text on the energy transition
The French deputies adopted Tuesday by 314 219 vote against the bill on the energy transition that aims to reduce the share of nuclear in electricity production 75 50% to% in 2025 (Reuters).
What does that mean? It will either replace these 25% by other sources of electricity and to help make it happen (as calculated below will show): greatly reduce the consumption of electricity in France!
How France hopes to get there?
Mystery because 25% of French production (550 TWh) Is about 140 TWh !!
A wind pregnant 3MW (! Those mat 120m) with a 20% load invoice, go 25% yield: 3 * 8.7 * 0.25 = 6.5 GWh per year ... in 10 years should therefore install: 140 000 / = 6.5 21 500 wind almost 6 3 MW turbines PER DAY! Suffice to say: impossible 10 years!
While the nuclear 25% will definitely not be replaced by wind turbines! But instead of replacing these 140 TWh nuclear can also decrease, 25 25% remaining%!
So it will also necessarily pass through the energy savings through insulation, the banishment of electric heating, small gestures ... etc etc ...
This would happen can be more sustainable and elsewhere too! For better a kWh saved a nuclear kWh kWh replaced by a fossil and even wind!
In all cases the announcement effect ... but beware this is not the vote by the Assembly, the implementing decree has not yet voted ... so we can fear a "wishful thinking law"?
Another solution to go from 75 50% to% the share of nuclear would be ... oh yes ... to increase overall electricity consumption and switch to 550 800 TWh TWh!
This is definitely the preferred solution EdF!
More idea on the forums: how to pass the nuclear share of 75% to 50% in France?
