In 2003, France increased its capacity for wind-generated electricity by 91 megawatts, bringing the total installed capacity by the end of the year to 239 megawatts.The French government is supporting wind power development with fixed tariffs for wind-powered electricity, and has set a goal of 6,000 megawatts of capacity by the year 2007, according to a recent report in Wind Directions, the official publication of the European Wind Energy Association...more>>


France wants to increase its renewable energy sources to 21 percent of total demand in 2010 from the current 15 percent, mainly by tapping wind power, Industry Minister Christian Pierret told a conference. "Wind power will be the largest contributer to this growth, because it has great potential in France," Pierret said. "It is reasonable to estimate 20 to 30 terawatt hours (TWh) of windpower will be required to keep to our (European Union) commitments, which means about 10 MW of installed capacity or 10 billion euros of investments," he added...more>>
