Sector says government needs to reflect potential of floating wind as timetable is published
France’s ecological transition ministry dismayed the wind industry with its latest ten-year energy plan.
In offshore wind, the government plans to reach 2.4GW by 2023, and a maximum of 4.7-5.2GW by 2028.
Onshore it hopes to gradually expand the tendering volume to 2GW per year, with regular 1GW auctions in the second and fourth quarter of each year starting in late 2020 and a target of 34.1-35.6GW by 2028
The wind sector was satisfied with the proposed onshore wind target but sharply criticised the offshore element.
