Nuclear: decision on new EPRs deferred to next five-year term

AFP • 08 / 01 / 2020

The decision to build or not to build new EPR nuclear reactors in France will not be taken before the end of 2022, therefore postponed to the next five-year term, confirmed on Wednesday the Minister for Ecological Transition, Élisabeth Borne.

"Whether it is all the elements on nuclear power or the 100% renewable scenarios, it is in mid-2021 that we want to have all the elements, technical, economic ...", he said. she said during a hearing of the Commission for Sustainable Development and that of Economic Affairs at the National Assembly.

This "for a decision (...) which will not take place before the commissioning of Flamanville", while "the loading of fuel from Flamanville is scheduled for the end of 2022. So that means that it is beyond" of that date, she added.

The government has asked EDF to work on a project for the construction of six new next-generation nuclear reactors, on the one hand.

He also envisages a scenario in which France would ultimately rely on 100% renewable electricity. This scenario is developed with the help of the International Energy Agency (IEA) and RTE, the manager of the high-voltage network, said Ms. Borne.

"On such important subjects, it is necessary that we take rational, reasoned decisions, and this is the objective of the various studies which are launched", she argued.

"I think that we are in the right step by examining all the scenarios, by giving ourselves the time to examine them rationally and without a priori, with a simple objective, which is to have carbon-free electricity production at affordable cost for citizens and businesses alike, ”said the Minister.

the government is forced to wait because each year the cost of renewable energy decreases, and ESPECIALLY the storage systems develop, PLUS EDF projections are often wrong whether in terms of costs, security, which is happened to fuckuhima, would / could happen in france.

And then it's not for Areva, it's for our face all these billions screwed up in the place of investments in renewable energies.

A straw next to what we spend on wind power which, remember, it does not produce without wind and has a disastrous load factor
the total budgetary costs of supporting the wind power sector vary between 70 and 90 billion euros, as provided for by the Pluriannual Energy Programming. There would be enough to renew all of the original French nuclear fleet or to pass the current to the 3rd generation. All obviously paid for by the taxpayer. This is very different from the nuclear industry, most of whose expenses are incurred by EdF with the State, which vouches for it. http://news.leportale.com/doc?id=214590625

Besides that we do not need to send trucks throughout the territory for maintenance, since it is centralized, but hey "we" decided to accelerate the collapse and the RC, thanks to the ecologists really competent. : Twisted:

Wind is expensive

FALSE. The State has spent to support this sector with additional remuneration for the actors. The report requested by the Senate from the Court of Auditors, of March 2018, on public support for renewable energies is often cited, in particular the 5,3 billion euros for the year 2016. But this sum covers all renewable and falls within the framework of European objectives to develop clean and renewable energies.
https://www.ouest-france.fr/environneme ... es-6728319
The sector is now mature and will cost the taxpayer less. The cost of wind farms currently built varies between 26 and 51 € / MWh, in Europe, depending on their location. It is much more competitive than new EPR-type nuclear projects, such as Hinkley Point, in England, whose range varies between 102 and 172 € / MWh.

In addition, wind farms earn income in the areas where they are located. The Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, which wants to go from 553 MW of wind power production to 2 MW at the end of 500, has calculated that this would generate 2030 jobs, 1 million euros in tax benefits and 600 million in wealth on its territory.

The journalist from Ouest-France may have received a bribe :?: : Mrgreen:
In reality it's delusional
In his special report of June 2019 on the Ecology, development and sustainable mobility mission of the 2018 budget, Julien Aubert estimated the final budgetary impact of public support for wind turbines, once this objective has been met, between 72,7 and 90 billion d 'euros. A colossal sum, equivalent to what France initially spent to acquire its nuclear fleet, except that the wind turbines will produce five times less electricity and will have an operating time three times less.

A colossal sum, equivalent to what France initially spent to acquire its nuclear fleet, except that the wind turbines will produce five times less electricity and will have an operating time three times less.

If the public investment devoted to them is out of proportion with the actual capacity of wind turbines to produce electricity, so is private investment. It is as if the production of electricity was not the first thing that we expect from wind turbines. Given the weather conditions, a wind turbine operates at full power on average only 21% of the time. In addition to not being able to turn when there is no wind, they must also stop when there is too much, otherwise damage will occur. This is the reason why, in 2017, during the first multi-technology call for tenders putting together, for 16 projects, both wind turbines and photovoltaic panels, all the projects were won by installations photovoltaic. Among all the files filed and for the same power, solar panels were on average capable of producing as much electricity at a price 27% cheaper than wind turbines. However, this did not give rise to the slightest questioning of France's strategic objectives in this area. http://www.assemblee-nationale.fr/dyn/1 ... sition-loi

"Mr. Julien Aubert estimated". Ah, well .... how, from what? What is it? Gné? Are you content with "Mr. Julien Aubert estimated" and the multiple uncertainties and approximations that punctuate this cloth? As a former Zététitien, I demand something more reliable than "Mr. Julien Aubert estimated". : Cheesy:
