EU clears three French renewable support schemes to develop 17 GW

News date: 

The European Commission has approved three schemes to support electricity production from small-scale onshore wind, solar and sewage gas installations in France under EU state aid rules.

The three schemes are aimed at supporting the development of 15 GW of additional small-scale onshore wind installations (less than 6 turbines capped at 3 MW each) through premiums on top of the market prices, that of 2.1 GW of small-scale solar PV installations below 100 kW through 20-year feed-in tariffs and around 160 MW of sewage-gas-fired small installations through 20-year feed-in tariffs for installations below 500 kW and through 20-year premiums for those above 500 kW. The schemes will allow France to develop more than 17 GW of additional renewable energy capacity.
