Renewable energies: the government bill adopted with the votes of part of the left


The Socialists brought their votes to that of the majority to allow the adoption of the text accelerating renewable energies. A

Until now, the government of Elisabeth Borne had got into the habit of seeking votes on the right to push through its reforms.

Unemployment insurance, purchasing power… But, unprecedented, for its bill on renewable energies, the executive turned to the benches of the left while right and extreme right, in the Assembly, rejected the block text.

And despite final concerns and endless negotiations, the maneuver worked.

After an extremely rare technical problem, pushing President Yaël Braun-Pivet to organize a vote by paper ballot and no longer electronically, the bill was adopted at first reading with 286 votes in favor and 238 against.

524 votes cast, absolute majority at 263).

It is indeed thanks to the voices of the socialists, as announced by Le Parisien in its edition of this Tuesday, January 10, and of some of the deputies of the group Libertés, Indépendants, Outre-mer et Territoires (Liot), that the majority was able to have its text adopted.

She was also able to count on the "waiting abstention" of the green deputies, who left room for doubt until last week.

“We expect better”, for example on the deployment of renewables on existing buildings, underlined the head of EELV Marine Tondelier.

The text of the government insists in particular on photovoltaic and wind power at sea, in line with the ambition displayed by Emmanuel Macron to multiply by ten by 2050 the production capacity of solar energy.

“The socialists, they cannot vote against in a moment of congress”

The Insoumis and the Communists voted against.

“This text is a real brake on everything related to energy transition.

Does it bring a plus for France?

It's no ”slices LFI deputy Rodrigo Arenas, formerly in the ranks of EELV.

Another rebellious parliamentarian is annoyed by the choice of his Nupes comrades.

“The Socialists, they can't vote against in a moment of congress… As for those who abstain, I don't understand.


“There are times to cooperate in the name of the general interest and the ecological emergency (…) This law has been the subject of a real work of dialogue between the different political camps and with the government”, had announced this Tuesday afternoon, before the vote, the PS deputy Dominique Potier, who claims “major progress” thanks to the 70 amendments of his group.

What seriously relieve the government in a high-risk day.

Until the end, the macronists were worried about a last minute about-face by the opposition, because, more or less at the time of the vote on the text, Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne presented her very controversial pension reform project. .

Parliament will now tackle the nuclear bill

For the time being, the bill must still go through the sieve of the Joint Joint Committee (CMP), which will bring together deputies and senators, a priori on January 24, to try to establish a compromise text, with a view to final adoption.

At the beginning of November, the Senate, with a majority on the right, had largely voted for the text inserting the endorsement of the mayors before installing onshore wind turbines and solar panels.

A measure that tensed the left.

In line with a compromise found in the Senate, the Assembly validated a planning mechanism, with priority “acceleration” zones for installing renewables, subject to the approval of the municipalities.

Still on the energy side, Parliament will now tackle another piece.

A bill dedicated to nuclear power arrives in the Senate on January 17.

And it is this time to the benches of the right that the government should turn.
