Authorization procedures for onshore wind projects in France
From Act No. 2000-108 of 10 February 2000 “on the modernization and development of the public electricity service” to Act No. 2015–992 of 17 August 2015 “on the energy transition for green growth” (LTECV), the rules applicable to the establishment of onshore wind farms in France have undergone significant changes. Recent draft regulatory texts, mainly aimed at making the legal framework more flexible, could speed up the authorisation procedures for wind farms in France.
