«Nuclear power output by EDF is set to fall to the lowest in more than three decades as it grapples with maintenance for its aging plants, turning France, traditionally Europe’s biggest electricity exporting country, into a net importer»

«La produzione di energia nucleare da parte di EDF è destinata a scendere al minimo in più di tre decenni, mentre è alle prese con la manutenzione dei suoi impianti obsoleti, trasformando la Francia, tradizionalmente il più grande Paese esportatore di elettricità in Europa, in un importatore netto»

La Francia potrebbe imporre uno stop di due anni alle esportazioni di energia elettrica verso l’Italia, mentre Electricite de France SA, controllata dallo Stato, lotta contro la diminuzione della produzione delle sue centrali nucleari, aggravando una crisi energetica sempre più profonda mentre l’Europa si avvia verso l’inverno.

Un portavoce di EDF ha smentito la notizia, affermando che l’azienda francese controllata dallo Stato non ha inviato alcuna lettera alle autorità italiane. Una portavoce dell’operatore della rete elettrica francese RTE, che è controllata al 50.1% da EDF ma il cui statuto ne garantisce l’indipendenza.

L’Italia importa circa il 13% della sua energia elettrica, secondo l’operatore nazionale Terna. La Francia rappresenta circa il 5% del consumo annuale del Paese.

France may impose a two-year halt on power exports to Italy as state-controlled Electricite de France SA battles dwindling output from its nuclear plants, aggravating a deepening energy crisis as Europe moves into winter.

Italy is working on plans to compensate for any cut in supply after receiving a written notification about the possible halt, a spokeswoman for the Italian ministry of energy transition said on Saturday, confirming a report by newspaper La Repubblica.

A spokesman for EDF denied the report, saying the French state-controlled utility “hasn’t sent a letter” to the Italian authorities. A spokeswoman for French power grid operator RTE, which is 50.1% owned by EDF but whose statutes ensure its independence, had no immediate comment. France’s finance ministry declined to comment.

Nuclear power output by EDF is set to fall to the lowest in more than three decades as it grapples with maintenance for its aging plants, turning France, traditionally Europe’s biggest electricity exporting country, into a net importer. The shortages are exacerbating an energy crunch across Europe after Russia cut its gas supplies to the continent.

As Europe heads into a difficult winter, the power shortages are testing the solidarity between countries. France’s potential power cut to its neighbor signals that national interest may prevail if the crisis intensifies. 

Earlier this month, Italy said it was targeting a reduction in natural gas consumption this winter by increasing the use of coal, turning down heating across the country, and pushing to change consumer behavior.

Italy imports about 13% of its power, according to national operator Terna. France accounts for about 5% of the country’s annual consumption.
