France’s nuclear output plummeted in 2022

France’s nuclear output plummeted by 22.6% year on year in 2022, down 81.7
TWh to 279 TW, EDF said on Friday, citing lower nuclear fleet availability
amid inspections and reactor repairs.

Last November, EDF cut its full-year
French nuclear output estimate to 275-285 TWh, down from 280-300 TWh
previously, due to 10-year maintenance schedules and strikes, as well as
extended outages at four nuclear reactors. The French utility’s nuclear
generation slumped to a 33-year low in 2022 as the country became a net
power importer for the first time since 2001, according to data previously
released from TSO RTE.

EDF posted an operating loss of EUR 19.36bn for 2022
due to the record low nuclear output and government caps on energy bills,
it said this morning.
