According to Borne, a nuclear law was presented in early November
A draft law intended to facilitate the construction of six new nuclear reactors will be presented to the Council of Ministers “at the beginning of November”, said Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne on Wednesday at the presentation of the government’s energy strategy in the Senate.
“We must facilitate and accelerate the development of these “reactor projects, the first of which must be operational by 2035″, in particular by facilitating certain administrative procedures: this is the meaning of the Atomic Law that will be presented to the Council of Ministers in early November”, explained the head of government by opening an energy debate in the Senate.
Elisabeth Borne also announced that parliamentarians would consider “by the end of the month” the draft law aimed at accelerating the “expansion” of renewable energy.
Regarding wind energy, before the senators, she wished “to improve the integration into the landscape and to plan the plants better, in order to balance the development of wind energy on the territory and to avoid the anarchic establishment of the parks”.
“A diversified mix is an opportunity, a protection. Therefore, we must move forward on two legs, renewable and nuclear,” argued the Prime Minister, presenting the government’s energy strategy, which is based on “three pillars”: sobriety, “carbon-free power generation around nuclear and renewable energies” and finally “the development of new ones Energy carriers such as carbon-free hydrogen”.
“Sobriety and electrification will transform our uses and our daily lives” and “will protect us from energy shocks and future crises,” she argued. “They will help bring down the bills. By consuming less, we will spend less. I will ensure that the energy transition is a fair transition,” she promised.
Elisabeth Borne also wanted the “safety net” for municipalities in distress in the face of rising energy prices to be “extended until 2023” and for “all municipalities” to benefit.
Since the beginning of October, municipalities that are getting into difficulties due to rising energy prices and food have been able to demand “a down payment” on the planned state aid in order to offset the increase in their spending.
