Wind power: MPs maintain an article on “visual saturation”, against the presidential camp


Renaissance MP and ex-Minister of Ecological Transition Barbara warned against “a nest of litigation” of “all anti-wind turbines” in the face of this article at the initiative of ecologist Delphine Batho.

MEPs maintained an article of the draft law on renewable energies providing that the authorization to operate a wind turbine takes account in particular of

"visual saturation"

and the need to


energies, despite fears of

"dispute nest"

of the presidential camp.

Added in committee on the initiative of the ecologist Delphine Batho, the article provides that the authorization to operate a wind turbine on a territory takes into account

“the power of electricity production”

, the

“number of installations (. ..) already existing in the territory concerned"

, of

"the need to diversify the sources of renewable energies locally"


"to prevent the effects of visual saturation"

Acknowledging a


in some territories, the Renaissance rapporteur of the bill Pierre Cazeneuve nevertheless proposed an amendment on Tuesday to delete the article, arguing that he was

“partly satisfied by the existing law”


Above all, he argued that he was going to

“the opposite of the bill”

to accelerate renewable energies, at first reading in the Assembly after adoption in the Senate.

“Litigation nest” of “anti-wind turbines”

"You are introducing new criteria, the energy mix, saturation, which are not hard-defined in the law, you will leave the door open to infinite litigation"

, defended the rapporteur, supported by the Minister for Energy Transition , Agnès Pannier-Runacher, who fears

"a lever to create litigation"

Delphine Batho, herself a former Minister of Ecology under Jean-Marc Ayrault, on the contrary defended a necessary measure to recognize the


of the territories,

"diversify renewable energies and get out of all wind power"

, judging that the project of the initial law did not

“in any way”

give sufficient guarantees to respond to this problem of visual saturation.

She also invoked the desire not to let this question of saturation remain a

"argument of those who would like to prevent the development of wind power"


The deputies of the left alliance Nupes, the Republicans, the RN, but also a handful of deputies of the majority voted against the amendment to delete the rapporteur Renaissance, obtaining in fact the maintenance of the measure in the text.

During the same session, the presidential camp, on the other hand, rejected attempts by deputies to reinstate a Senate amendment, deleted in committee at the Assembly, which established an assent of the Architect of Buildings of France for any wind project located less than 10 km from a historic monument.
