$14.2 billion offshore wind farm in France
The French government of Nicolas Sarkozy has launched a €10 billion ($14.26 billion) tender to build about 1,200 wind turbines in 5 different offshore wind farms.
France depends mostly of nuclear energy.
France wants to diversify his energy generation with renewable sources and to have 23% of France’s energy come from renewable sources by 2020.
The offshore wind farms will be located off France’s coast on the North and West and will generate about 3.5% of France’s electricity needs.
