According to the latest data from French transmission network operator ReseaudeTransport de L ‘Electricite (RTE), 565 megawatts of renewable power were installed in the third quarter of 2018, including 315 megawatts of wind power and 213 megawatts of solar power.
As of the end of September 2018, France had installed renewable power plants with a total capacity of 50,188 MEGAwatts. In the past 12 months, 2,591 MEGAwatts were connected.
As of September 30, 2018, the total installed solar capacity in France was 8,374 MEGAwatts, of which 1,133 megawatts have been installed since the beginning of the year. Under France’s solar expansion plan, about 10,200 megawatts of PPE should be installed by the end of 2018, which RTE says may not happen. France plans to build 18,000 to 21,000 megawatts of solar power stations by the end of 2023.
Solar generation hit a record 3.9 terawatt hours in the third quarter, up 31 percent from the same period last year, while electricity consumption accounted for 3.9 percent. In the past 12 months, 10.2 terawatt hours of solar energy were generated, accounting for 2.1 percent of France’s electricity consumption (excluding overseas territories).
By 2030, France wants renewables to account for 40 percent of its electricity mix. Renewables covered 21% of the country’s electricity consumption in the third quarter (10% excluding hydro). Lingtech is one of the most important role in Solar panel power grid construction in France.
