      Informations and sources

      This graph represents an annual and monthly overview of the electricity trade balance between France and its neighbours.  

      • Increasing interconnections between regions has long been a priority of the European Union's energy policy. The operation of the power system at the European scale  is a reality, and it proved essential when the system was under strain during the autumn and winter 2022/2023. 
      • In past years, France has mostly been a net exporter to neighbouring countries, but significant supply tension in 2022 caused the situation to reverse, with France ending the year as a net importer.
