    French government study: 95% renewable mix cheaper than nuclear and gas

    Terje Osmundsen, 24 April 2015

    “…It used to be the visionaries and the NGOs who talked about a 100% renewable future, but now leading number-crunchers and energy experts are joining the chorus. In California, the government energy regulator were recently quoted saying that California’s power grid could handle 100% renewables…New studies have been released showing the US can get to 100% renewables by 2050, at marginal extra cost…[Release of Vers un mix électrique 100% renouvable en 2050 from ADEME (French Agency for Environment and Energy Management) was postponed while the French government was pushing] an electricity mix with 50 % nuclear, down from 75% today…[But it was leaked and it] demonstrates that a 100% renewable power system in France is both possible and economically attractive…The cost to the consumer of the 100% renewable scenario is more or less equal to a scenario close to today’s, with only 40% renewables…[because while] the cost of wind and solar continue to fall, the cost of natural gas including CO2 will rise steadily…[and] nuclear is becoming more expensive, primarily due to the new safety regulations…” click here for more
