EDF updates its 2022 French nuclear output estimate to 275-285TWh, compared to the previous estimate of 280-300TWh.

This estimate takes into account the following factors:

  • The impact on maintenance schedules of strikes movements in autumn 2022
  • Outage extensions at 4 nuclear reactors involved in the programme of inspections and repairs related to the stress corrosion phenomenon[1].

The French nuclear output estimates for 2023 and 2024, respectively 300-330TWh and 315-345TWh, remain unchanged.
