The EC approved a state aid measure to support innovative installations for electricity production from solar energy in France. The €600 million scheme will be financed from the French State budget and is earmarked to provide support for the deployment of 350 MW of new, small-scale solar capacity between 100 kW and 5 MW. The beneficiaries will be selected through tenders organised in 2019 and will receive aid in the form of a feed-in tariff or a premium on top of the market price for 20 years.
