France



France is located in Western Europe, covering 551,500 km2 (212,935 mile2) of land surface and having a population of 65 Million (2017). France’s primary energy production is 1,582 terawatt-hours (TWh), and energy supply per capita is 43 MWh (UN data, 2017). Nuclear is both the largest source of primary energy production and the largest source of primary energy consumption (The Shift Project, 2014). 278 species are listed as threatened (UN data, 2017).

 

As of 2016, France has 249,100 kW installed capacity of tidal and river current energy combined (OES). France is currently a member of Ocean Energy Systems.

 

As of 2016, France has 11,700 MW installed wind power capacity, all of which comes from land-based wind farms (IEA Wind). France generated 20 TWh of electricity from wind in 2016 (IEA Wind). France is currently a member of IEA Wind, participating in WREN.
