Crucial intelligence to understand the changing dynamics of the French power market


France is on the cusp of profound power market transformation. Energy mix diversification creates large renewables investment opportunities, and a growing need for system flexibility. As the mix changes, so does renewables assets’ revenue uncertainty.

Receding public subsidies and new technologies such as hydrogen make long-term revenues crucial to grasp, and different business models are quickly emerging as alternatives to CfDs.


The recession of subsidies and of nuclear capacities will make the French market more volatile, prices less certain, and potential future outcomes more divergent.

To model and predict those possible outcomes, we assist investors, developers, banks and aggregators with price scenarios and sensitivity analyses. We provide guidance to policymakers and strategy groups in large utilities to navigate the energy transition, as well as quantify and manage merchant risk.


Our French Power Market Service provides guidance to policymakers, business developers, investors, financiers and utilities to navigate the energy transition, supporting you to understand, quantify and manage merchant risk.

We provide forecasts of baseload and capture prices, and full transparency on our modelling to understand long-term directions of the French electricity market.
