This report identifies the pathways for France to reach the deep decarbonization, which includes demand cut and energy transition. An important conclusion of the report is that a deep decarbonization pathway involves a profound modification of the social contract established at a time of cheap fossil fuels. Such a transition cannot be disconnected from the country’s overall development strategy, and to succeed, will be conditional to France’s ability to mobilize around reforms which, taken together, may define a new social contract.
