What the Renewable Energy Law contains, definitively adopted by Parliament
The bill for the acceleration of the deployment of renewable energies has completed its parliamentary course, being definitively adopted, this February 7, 2023, in the Senate. This text, which had been the subject of a conclusive passage in the mixed parity committeeaims, as the Minister of Energetic transitionAgnes Pannier-Runacher, “to halve the deployment time of projects and return to the average of our European partners”. France remains indeed below its claims in the matter. The objectives set by the State are now to multiply solar energy production tenfold to exceed 100GW, deploy 50 parks wind turbines at sea to reach 40GW and to double the production of onshore wind turbines to reach 40GW. On the energy mix front, two other major laws will follow this year: one on nuclear power, the other on energy and climate programming.
The law passed by Parliament is based on four principles, the simplification of procedures, better involvement of communities in decision-making processes, the mobilization of land that has already been developed and the sharing of value at the local level.

Better plan the deployment of renewable energies in the territories
One of the obstacles to the development of onshore wind turbines is that of the social acceptability of this equipment. The law therefore establishes a device “territorial planning” aimed at ensuring a “better territorial balance in the implementation of projects”.
