French Energy Systems Should Scrape Through Winter

France's power and gas systems will be under stress this winter, but should remain balanced, system operators believe. They also warn that waves of cold weather could generate disruption and, potentially, trigger outages. But those can be avoided with relatively small doses of "energy sobriety," such as temporary reductions in heating temperatures. Power system operator RTE and its gas counterparts GRTgaz and Terega unveiled their winter projections at two separate press conferences last week. They looked at a variety of weather and technical assumptions, such as nuclear availability, but assumed in every scenario that Europe would no longer receive Russian gas this winter — or anytime later.
