Energy currents: cartography of the installed capacity per site in France 2016

This graph illustrates a mapping of the electrical energy power of the currents installed in France in 2016, by power plant. It is reported that 14 megawatts of tidal power capacity are installed at the Raz Blanchard site operated by the EDF, DCNS and OpenHydro groups, and located between the western tip of Cape Hague and the island of Alderney.
