What impact will the law to accelerate renewable energy have on the French photovoltaic industry?
In accordance with the February 2022 Belfort speech, the law passed by the Assembly on January 10 should allow for a 10-fold increase in solar energy production. This law is excellent news for the energy transition. However, what does it actually imply for the French photovoltaic industry?
The bill to accelerate renewable energy remains a text of small steps, necessary, but far from sufficient. Particularly because the text only deals with the industrial issue on the sidelines.
Today, the European Union imports 84% of its photovoltaic equipment and the People’s Republic of China monopolizes 80% of the market. The challenge is therefore to quickly support the French photovoltaic industry, so as not to remain dependent and to reduce the carbon impact of installed solar panels.
