They remain limited and cannot concern areas that can be used for agriculture or pastoralism.
The Assembly on Friday adopted new derogations from the “coastal” law to set up photovoltaic or hydrogen production facilities on wasteland by the sea, one of the measures of the bill to accelerate renewable energies. The article, adopted at first reading with 34 votes against 16, aims to respond to the lack of land which is an obstacle to the increase in photovoltaic capacities in France.
New derogations are thus planned to allow the installation of solar energy or renewable hydrogen production facilities on wasteland, that is to say areas that have already been artificialised, former quarries or former landfills. These derogations remain limited, and cannot for example concern areas that can be used for agriculture or pastoralism.
With the agreement of the government, an amendment proposing a specific derogation for Guyana and Mayotte was adopted. The Assembly also voted in favor of an article allowing the installation of solar power plants on the ground “in discontinuity of urban planning” in some mountain towns that cannot do so today.
