Infographic: Renewable Energy in France
The team has been working on a series of infographics on renewable energy production in the European Union. After covering Germany and the UK, it is time to take a closer look at the renewable electricity generation in France.
The infographic focuses on wind, solar and hydro power statistics from 2015 and sheds light on today’s renewable energy market as well as its evolution in Europe over the past 10 years.
“We conducted an analysis of the European renewable energy market for internal purposes and quickly realized that our findings could be of interest not only to our customers but also to the industry at large. We were impressed to discover that the country produced 81,401 GWh of sustainable clean electricity in 2015 and that 95% of last year’s electrical capacity growth in France was due to renewable energy. These numbers are a testament to the growing importance of renewable energy sources in future energy development.” – says Fredrik Larsson, CMO at Greenbyte.
