Power producer with a broad energy mix
Uniper's generation fleet in France encompasses a range of energy sources: coal, gas, wind, and solar. To enhance our proportion of renewables, we’re converting Unit 4 at Provence power station from coal to biomass. With our power plants, we not only generate mid- and peak-load power, but we also play a major role on the French market regarding supply-demand balance.
