National workshop: France
When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 9:00 - 10:30
Where: Griffioen (130 participants)
Recently, Europe has witnessed an acceleration in the pace of corporate sourcing of renewables. This trend, however, has broadly been concentrated in a few countries with others failing to take off. France has seen its first power purchase agreements signed in 2019, on both solar and wind energy, while self-consumption projects are expanding, France remains a country partially favorable to corporate sourcing of renewables.
Identifying which barriers are holding back the expansion of corporate sourcing in these markets as well as working on the policy adjustments to stimulate a rapid scale-up of renewable energy sourcing activities is crucial to using this huge opportunity.
During this 1.5 hour session we will discuss about the economic and regulatory framework in France, as well as the recent achievements on solar and wind. National challenges and barriers will also be raised, putting together recommendations and solutions for a consistent, credible and feasible approach to accelerate corporate sourcing nationally and across borders.
