Electricity prices in France fell to below €200/MWh in January, the lowest since end March, as a warmer European winter and improved LNG facilities caused TTF natural gas prices to plummet from their peaks, reducing feedstock costs for major utilities. Still, prices remained well above those of European neighbors, as the country's vital nuclear energy sector continued operating below capacity. State-led utility EDF extended the suspension of two reactors by four months and warned of lengthy repairs of seven other reactors in December. Earlier in 2022, the partial suspension of the nuclear fleet amid corrosion issues and a shortage of cooling water ramped up fears of national energy rationing and drove France to shift from one of Europe's leading energy exporters to an energy importer.

Electricity Price in France averaged 62.94 EUR/MWh from 2004 until 2022, reaching an all time high of 743.84 EUR/MWh in August of 2022 and a record low of -6.51 EUR/MWh in April of 2020.
