France lacks concept for energy revolution

The French government met with experts to discuss the future of France's energy sector at a conference in Paris on Friday and Saturday. President François Hollande used the occasion to make impressive announcements such as the closure of France's oldest nuclear power plant in Fessenheim in Alsace but did not initiate a real debate on the energy revolution, the liberal daily Les Echos laments: "What measures must be taken in the coming 20 years to reduce France's dependency on nuclear energy and fossil fuels and to limit emissions of greenhouse gases? And how is this transformation to be carried out in industry so that it creates growth and jobs? These questions were not addressed at the conference. More than just one and a half days of round-table discussions need to be devoted to such fundamental questions. Above all the various energy sectors must not be played off against each other, and time must be taken to see how other countries are addressing the issue."
