  • This market report offers an incisive and reliable overview of the photovoltaic sector of the country for the next long-term period, 2024 ÷ 2033. France is located in Western Europe and is the largest country in the European Union by land area, covering approximately 640,679 square kilometres (247,368 square miles). It shares borders with eight countries: Belgium and Luxembourg to the north, Germany and Switzerland to the east, Italy and Monaco to the southeast, and Spain and Andorra to the south. France has an extensive coastline along the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the English Channel (La Manche) to the north, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. France also has numerous overseas territories and departments around the world, including French Guiana in South America, Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Caribbean, Réunion in the Indian Ocean, and French Polynesia in the Pacific Ocean.

    France is among the best performers in Europe in the share of installed small-scale solar generation capacity (<1 MW). The French residential solar market is currently in a state of rapid growth. This growth is being driven by a number of factors, including rising electricity prices, the desire for energy independence, the increasing availability of financing options, and the growing popularity of solar battery storage systems. The current cumulative installed PV capacity in France grew up from 1 GW in 2010 to over 18.7 GW at the end of 2023. French prosumers have a wide range of governmental support mechanisms that either subsidise the adoption of flexible technologies or allow for direct monetisation of their assets. Current government plans and legislative changes show firm intentions to continue the existing support and increase solar self-consumption and the number of prosumers.

    The report provides a complete picture of the market situation, dynamics, current issues and future prospects. You will find more than 120 pages of valuable information in this unique, in-depth analysis of France photovoltaic market will receive an overview of how the military conflict in Ukraine and the European Union's decision to make a significant reduction of Russian gas and other energy commodities import will impact it. With comprehensive market data, this report brings clear and concise insights to help investors in their decision-making process. As 2022 and 2023 were challenging years for the photovoltaic industry, the time for making the right decisions during 2024 and the next few years is limited.
