Solar PV to provide 300 MW to France by 2011
Last week Jean-Louis Borloo, the French energy and environment Minister, launched a plan that will quadruple the amount of electricity provided by solar photovoltaïc in order to reach 300 MW by 2011.
This is great news as investing 1.5 billion euros ($2 billion) in solar PV is the right move for France to enable local energy companies to diversify even more in this promising industry.
But to my opinion, we should also invest in energy efficiency and in solar thermal as we dramatically lag behind other countries like Germany. Both solutions would enable us to mitigate climate change.
