STATE OF PLAY IN THE WIND ENERGY MARKET IN FRANCE

The French Wind Energy Association is publishing in partnership with Capgemini Invent the 2019 edition of the Wind Energy Observatory.

 



Initial findings: wind energy is an energy that appeals to the French– 73 % say they have a positive image of it – and the sector provides a lot of jobs (it is the leading employer in the renewable energy sector in France!). 

The 2019 edition of the Wind Energy Observatory confirms the dynamic nature of the sector. The number of jobs created is constantly on the increase – it went up by 6.4% between 2017 and 2018 – and today the sector accounts for 18,200 direct and indirect jobs throughout the entire wind energy ecosystem distributed among 1,000 companies.
