By Isabelle Blanc on ParisTech Review

L'essor des renouvelables depuis le début des années 2000 devrait se poursuivre et s'amplifier dans les décennies à venir. Elles modifieront substantiellement le bouquet électrique du futur et on espère qu'elles limiteront les impacts environnementaux associés à la production d’électricité. Il est donc indispensable d'étudier l'empreinte environnementale des différentes filières de production.
The development of renewable energy since the early 2000s should continue and intensify in the coming years, changing significantly the electricity mix of the future while reducing the associated environmental impacts. It is therefore crucial to study the environmental impact of the different production sectors.
