The TotalEnergies Ecosolutions advantage
The plant contributes to the objective of increasing the share of renewable energy to 40% of the French electricity mix by 2030, as set out in the French law on the energy transition for green growth (LTECV).
By injecting renewable energy (in this case from wind) into the French electricity grid, the plant reduces dependence on fossil fuels of the country, lowers greenhouse gas emissions and promotes decentralized and local electricity production.
The Environmental Performance
Compared to the reference scenario, which is the French electricity production mix in 2016 without the wind power plant, TotalEnergies' Champagne Conlinoise wind farm demonstrates the following environmental performance:
- An 88% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
This comparative review was based on a Life Cycle Assessment for the functional unit: "Produce 1 kWh of electricity distributed to the national grid during 20 years of operation. "
