French energy markets in 2009: a departure from dirigisme?

2009 played host to some little-noted but important steps towards liberalization in the French gas and power markets.

A E350m loan from the European Investment Bank is to boost a project for a new France-Spain interconnector.

The UK and 11 other EU countries have signaled their support for nuclear generation. Datamonitor expects benefits from such "soft" agreements to be long-term and to include easier access to funding and R&D sharing.
