Parliament definitively adopted, on Tuesday, February 7, the bill for the acceleration of renewable energies carried by Agnès Pannier-Runacher. The final vote in the Senate was acquired by 300 votes for and 13 votes against. In the midst of the energy crisis and under the pressure of global warming, this text aims to make France catch up on its great delay in renewable energies.
The text provides in particular for the development of offshore wind and solar energy. It intends to meet the objective set by President Emmanuel Macron for 2050 to multiply by ten the production capacity of solar energy to exceed 100 GW and to deploy 50 wind farms at sea to reach 40 GW. It aims to “remove all the locks that delay the deployment of projects”underlined Agnès Pannier-Runacher, who fought to gain support in the oppositions on the right and on the left. “We are the only European country not to have achieved its objectives” in terms of wind and solar power, she told the deputies who gave their last green light last week.
