If you produce hydroelectricity, you can benefit from CNR’s strategic position on the market for renewable energies and its purchase of your production under the best conditions, flexibly and securely.
The historic producer of hydroelectricity on the Rhone, CNR has more than 3,000 MW of installed hydropower capacity, with 19 plants (from 45 to 420 MW) and 21 small and micro-plants (from 0.5 to 10 MW). Thus CNR is well aware of the constraints and specific characteristics of hydroelectricity and small hydroelectricity plants in particular. This makes CNR an ideal contact for the owners of hydropower plants who wish to sell their production under the best conditions.
Since October 2012, more than forty producers (local authorities, departmental councils, private and public companies) have placed their trust in CNR and sell their production to us. The amount purchased in France totals 300 GWh.
Our purchase offers in France
> On the open market
> With the new obligatory purchase contract
These contracts are intended solely for French producers.
Thanks to their clarity and flexibility, our different purchase offers have formed the basis for relations of lasting trust with renewable energy producers since 2012. The contracts that we offer are:
Our plant was renovated in 1995 and there was no need to invest. Thus we didn’t opt for EDF’s obligatory purchase contract. We were attracted by CNR’s offers so, since October 2012, we have renewed our contract every year. We’re very satisfied with our relations with the specialised team. They keep us well-informed about market trends. And they are very attentive and help us to choose the most appropriate contract for our installation. We work together in a real partnership with a very friendly atmosphere.
