Cogeneration in France. What is the outlook for the next few years?

Régis Contreau - Product Manager, GRDF

2% of energy produced in France comes from cogeneration plants; this percentage is set to increase thanks to feed-in tariffs that have already existed since 2013. Over the next two years a predicted 500 MW of additional cogeneration output will be supplied to the grid. The future trend will be for more micro-cogeneration plants, more self-production of energy and a greater flexibility of the grid.
