Forecasted evolution of the annual consumption
of natural gas
This graph shows the annual natural gas consumption forecasts established by sector of activity and for the entire French zone.
The forecast data are calculated on the basis of an increase in gas mobility and the development of renewable gases (blue scenario of the Perspectives gaz 2018).
Over the past decade, French gas consumption has been on a decreasing trend for traditional uses (residential, tertiary and industrial), although the years 2016 and 2017 were characterized by an increase in gas demand. For new uses, such as the mobility and transportation sector, the forecasts of rising gas consumption by 2035 are clearly part of an energy transition context aimed at achieving carbon neutrality in the long term.
