Fissures in Europe's fission industry

German engineering giant Siemens' decision to divest its 34% stake in Areva NP must have been a painful one. In walking away from the nuclear reactor production joint venture, Siemens loses a stake in the promising European pressurized reactor at a time of 'nuclear renaissance'. The decision will also cause problems for Areva, given the potential threat of further political meddling.

Forecourts: France authorizes biofuel but more carrot needed

France has joined a number of other countries in approving the commercial sale of biofuels, with the French government stating that it hopes to see biofuel's share of total motor fuel consumption rise to 7% by 2010. However, legislation alone is not enough. Given the need to convince retailers to provide biofuels, and the attendant costs, the uptake of biofuels also needs to be consumer-driven.

France strengthens profile in South Africa with GDF Suez deal

GDF Suez has been awarded a EUR1.5bn contract to build new conventional thermal electricity capacity in South Africa. This outcome is partly due to France's aggressive stance concerning its domestic industrial interests abroad, and bodes very well for future South African transport, infrastructure, and nuclear development contracts to be awarded to French companies.

France-Spain interconnector: receives EIB funding, but concerns over EU generation capacity remain

A E350m loan from the European Investment Bank is to boost a project for a new France-Spain interconnector. The EU is driving such projects as a crucial part of its objective of a single internal energy market.

France: boosting hopes of a European shale gas boom

Shale gas production remains a niche activity, despite increased coverage in the press. Few countries produce shale gas and fewer still can ensure that its extraction techniques are actually environmentally safe. France is by no means alone in resisting shale production on environmental grounds, but has now come to realize that its mining laws prevent it from imposing a moratorium on the practice.
