The threat of power cuts this winter "seems to be waning", government spokesman Olivier Véran said on Wednesday, the executive nevertheless calling on "businesses and citizens" to "maintain efforts on eco-gestures".

"The risk of a cut this winter seems to be receding, in particular due to a gradual resumption of operation of our nuclear power plants, but also due to the weather conditions, everyone will have been able to see this, but also due to the effort made by the State, companies and all French people in terms of energy sobriety", declared Olivier Véran during the report of the Council of Ministers.

“It is therefore rather reassuring news but which should not take us away from our objective which is that of energy sobriety”, he added.
