A picture taken 20 April 2006 shows high voltage electric lines of the French power company RTE, in Blandy-Les-Tours, south of Paris. A surge in electricity demand in Germany due to cold weather triggered blackouts across western Europe on 05 November 2006, leaving about 10 percent of French consumers without power, electricity operators said. "We weren't very far from a European blackout," Pierre Bornard, a member of the board of directors of the French power company RTE. Parts of Italy and Spain also experienced power outages.

The amount of electrical energy generated in 2013 / 2014 reached 168 billion KWH up from the 164.6 billion KWH that was generated in 2012/2013, marking a 2.1% increase; the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS), said in a Sunday report.

Meanwhile the per capita share of the total amount of electricity generated amounted to 1960 KWH in 2013/2014, down from the 1968 KWH in 2012/2013, marking a 0.4% decline.

As for the distributed amount of electrical energy it increased by 1.9% year on year YoY standing at 143.6 billion GWH in 2013/2014 in comparison with 140.9 billion GWH in 2012/2013.

The per capita share of the distributed electrical energy however declined by 3.9% reaching 1674.5 KWH in 2013/2014 compared to 1741.7 KWH in the preceding year.

Residential consumption of the distributed electricity was 59 billion GWH in 2013/2014 down by 8.9% from the 64.8 billion consumed in the year before.

The report further mentioned that natural gas consumed in 2013/2014 reached 37.6 million tons down from the 39.2 million tones, the year before, marking a 4.2% decline.
