9.4 GW of installed capacity


Installed solar capacity in France ended 2019 at 9,435 MW. Of this, 8,793 MW was connected to the grids of Enedis, LDCs and EDF-SEI for Corsica, and 643 MW to the transmission network. The increase in capacity relative to 2018 was 10.4%. At 889 MW, capacity additions were within the average range for recent years.

The Multiannual Energy Programme set a target of lifting installed solar capacity to 18.2 GW by 2023 under the low scenario and to 20.2 GW under the high scenario. France is thus 51% of the way toward achieving the target for 2023 (low scenario).
