France - Future Tender B (Fixed/Floating)

21 Apr 2020: The French government confirmed its Multi-Year Energy Programming/Les programmations pluriannuelles de l’énergie (PPE) which forms the strategic roadmap for energy and climate for the period 2019-2023 and 2024-2028. Following the online public consultation which took place from 20th January to 20th February 2020 with 6,295 contributions recieved, the PPE was formally adopted by decree on 21st April 2020. A summary of the public opinions, the reasons for the decision to adopt the PPE, an environmental statement, the final PPE document (and summaries) and the adoption decree have been published by the ministry. The PPE sets targets of 40% renewable energy generation by 2030. All coal plants are to close by 2022, and 14 nuclear reactors by 2035 to achieve 50% share of nuclear electricity. The long term goal is carbon neutrality by 2050. A first draft of the PPE was published January 2019 but there was considerable backlash that renewable energy targets, including offshore wind, were too low. Offshore wind objectives have been revised upwards taking advantage of the drop in prices recorded on the Dunkirk tender in June 2019. Overall, 2.4 GW will be installed by 2023, and 3.75 GW will be tendered from 2020-2023, leading to an operational target of 5.2-6.2 GW (against previous targets of 4.7-5.2 GW) by 2028. The tender for a 1 GW project off the coast of Normandy will be launched in 2021. The Oléron offshore wind area has also been re-introduced to the PPE after omission from the January 2019 draft with tender awarded expected 2021-22. A further 1 GW fixed offshore wind farm will be awarded in 2023. One 250 MW floating project in Brittany will be awarded in 2021 and two 250 MW floating projects in the Mediterranean will be awarded in 2022. From 2024 the Government has increased annual targets from 500 MW to 1 GW for a combination of fixed and/or floating. Tendered projects will mostly involve extending previous wind farms with shared transmission systems to enable cost savings.
