France has warned of blackouts this winter
Bloomberg: France is at risk of losing power for several days this winter
France is at risk of losing power for several days in the coming winter as nuclear power plants (NPPs) are not available for the season. about that writes Bloomberg Agency.
In an effort to avoid blackouts, the French government has urged businesses, local governments and households to save money, the release said. It has been reported that if the network operator Réseau de Transport d’Électricité (RTE) anticipates a power shortage, it will launch an “ecowatt” red warning in advance to reduce consumption to prevent blackouts. “If it is warm, there will be no Ecowatt signal. If it’s very cold, there will be many of them, and if we have an average, normal winter, there will be many warnings,” said Xavier Pechachik, president of RTE.
State-owned company Électrique de France SA repairs and maintains almost half of its nuclear power plants, turning the country, a traditional exporter of electricity, into an importer. The company has commissioned only 31 reactors out of 56.
It was previously known about the readiness of residents of the UK to cause mass riots in the event of a power outage. It was reported that the state government was developing a secret plan for a week-long blackout.
