Energy Autonomy, Renewable Energies in France _ Get your projects in France going. Seeking a French partner or building a Consortium?

Following a request from a colleague, here is the list of companies, all sizes, involved in furthering the development and use of Renewable Energies and registered in France.

Google translator does a good job. Company names do not usually change in translation. I shall list only the translations of Category Titles as follows:

Bilingual Renewable Energy Categories - Translated from French via Google Translator.

BIOCARBURANTS - BIOFUELS
BOIS/BIOMASSE - WOOD / BIOMASS
EOLIEN - WIND
GéOTHERMIE - GEOTHERMAL
HYDRAULIQUE - HYDRAULIC
PHOTOVOLTAïQUE- PHOTOVOLTAIC
ENERGIES MARINES - Ocean Energy (Marine Energy)
SOLAIRE THERMIQUE - SOLAR THERMAL
POMPE à CHALEUR - HEAT PUMP .


Discuss by all means and please give this a wide Echo - it deserves much co-ordinated "low carbon foot" effort and determination. Since currently most in situ electric energy production is via Coal, and Nuclear, the renewable path is already traced, is it not? (n'est ce pas?).
(Fuel and Gas are used either directly for heat or transportation)

Suite à une demande d'un collègue, voici la liste de Societes en France, qui se sont investies dans les énergies renouvelables. cf. also Scotland as your renewables Model.

Two very good back ground books to read and to use.
1. Energy Basics - Energy Balance _ Production capacity (hard work and Jobs?) vs Consumption (Too easy for human and planetary good?)
Title Without Hot Air by David J.C. MacKay free online or buy the print edition.

2. Energy and Economy policy for "Human Economy is essentially about how mankind transforms limited natural resources to make useful desirable products and services." quoted from the authers of:
