France’s electricity consumers face curbs as EDF struggles with problems and shutdowns


French electricity consumers face curbs on their electricity supplies
following shutdowns at four of EDF’s nuclear power plant. France is
highly reliant on its nuclear power plants, obtaining around 70 per cent of
its electricity from nuclear on an annual basis.

This, along with other
various examples of nuclear unreliability, must seriously question the
British Government’s determination to plough on with its programme of new
nuclear power plant. The four nuclear plants have been shut down ‘after
the detection of anomalies in the emergency injection circuits‘.

France’s Grid Operator, RTE, has warned consumers that limitations on
supplies may be necessary soon. France has been struggling with its nuclear
sector and EDF’s efforts to build another nuclear plant at Flamanville
have been hobbled by very long construction delays and massive cost
overruns.
