Will France soon be plastered with Chinese-made solar panels?
In his Belfort speech, President Emmanuel Macron presented solar energy as a priority for building France’s energy sovereignty. Solar energy also meets the challenges of the energy transition. The bill to accelerate renewable energies provides for the installation of numerous photovoltaic panels, particularly on roofs, in fields and along highways.
In an article published in Le Figaro, Richard Flurin discusses what is at stake in this bill. Indeed, although this is good news for our energy mix, the journalist reminds us that the vast majority of the panels installed in Europe were produced in China. We are therefore in the process of replacing our energy dependence by an industrial dependence.
