Renewable energy association and the French of France issued a joint communique several grid operators 31, said 31% of the French electricity consumption in the second quarter of this year from renewable energy power generation, up from 23% in the first quarter, a record since 1973, the renewable energy for the first time since 1960 in France reached a similar proportion in the power structure.

New sources of electricity, such as wind, solar and biomass, accounted for 10 per cent of French electricity consumption in the second quarter, up from 7 per cent in the same period last year and 21 per cent from hydropower, according to the data.

In terms of energy structure, nuclear power has long been the main energy source in France. At one time, nuclear power accounted for more than 70% of the country's total electricity generation. The French government plans to gradually reduce the share of nuclear power generation to 50 per cent and expand its use of renewable energy, citing concerns about ageing, safety and operational maintenance.

France has promised the eu that renewable energy will account for 23 per cent of final energy consumption by 2020 and 32 per cent by 2030.France invests about 5 billion euros a year to support renewable energy, nicolas huelot, minister of solidarity and ecological transformation, told French media.

Jean-louis barr, President of the French renewable energy association, said France had "great potential" for renewable energy but needed to "accelerate" because at current rates of growth, the share of renewable energy in final energy consumption could reach only 19 per cent or 20 per cent by 2020, well below the 23 per cent target.
