This map shows the locations of French centralized electricity production sites from natural gas currently in operation or planned in France as of July 1st, 2018.


In 2018, the total electric power of French natural gas-fired power plants is 6.7 GWe. Winter 2017-2018 was caracterised by an important decrease in production (40 TWh, which represents -31% compared to the previous winter) due to better availability of nuclear power plants and favourable weather conditions for hydraulic generation.
