Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not inclined to sing the praises of Macron (he is currently engaged in buggering up my retirement prospects) but on energy, he has pivoted / flip-flopped to renewables in a big way. Crisis = opportunity.

He has already committed us to building new nukes, but that is a decade away (in wildly optimistic mode) from having any impact. Offshore wind can come on line in a big way in a few years, and solar can ramp up even quicker.
