France’s race to reindustrialisation—will it hit the power wall?

France has made reshoring of industrial activities a national priority for the decade to come. As decarbonisation increasingly becomes a key success factor for future-proof industries, France hopes to benefit from its long history of cheap, low-carbon nuclear power.

At first glance, it may seem favourably positioned in the race to industry electrification. But last year’s power prices have reminded us that the French power system is not immune to risks. If the economy’s power consumption rapidly expands, as anticipated by RTE, the relative lack of system margins may lead to a rapid increase in electricity sourcing costs, which would be fatal to competitiveness.

In this webinar, we will quantify the price impact resulting from an increase in demand from reindustrialisation, looking at different scenarios of renewables build-out by 2035. We will summarise the implications for energy consumers, renewable project developers and investors.
