Hi all

France is currently facing supply side constraints with typically 70% of their supply from nuclear and 12 of their 56 nuclear facilities currently out for maintenance.  Some of that outage is related to coronavirus measures.  The French public are being asked to significantly curtail their electricity use, including turning off their WiFi routers when they leave their houses.  No blackouts have occurred and imports of up to 12 GW are possible from neighboring Germany and Switzerland.  Line voltages can also be dropped to reduce load.
