French nuclear reduction target now seen around 2030

The French government said Tuesday that it probably would not be able to keep its 2025 deadline for reducing the proportion of electricity generated from nuclear to 50 percent, an admission which angered ecologists.

France would still reduce nuclear power to from its current level of about 75 percent of its electricity generation derived from nuclear power - the highest percentage of any advanced economy - but that it would take longer than eight years to do so.

The target was part of the previous Socialist government's 2015 energy transition law and was confirmed by new centrist president Emmanuel Macron's government.

Hulot said that a new timetable would have to be considered that would "also enable our first priority, which is of course not to hamper the dynamic and progress of our exit from fossil fuels".

Nicolas Hulot told reporters on November 7 that it's too "brutal and unrealistic" to meet earlier pledges to cap the amount of France's electricity produced by nuclear plants at 50% by 2025.
