Improvement of quality of forecasts of nuclear groups' availability

In order to improve the quality of forecasts of nuclear groups' availability and having informed CRE (Commission de régulation de l'énergie), the calculation for estimating the return dates on the Grid of nuclear groups is evolving on July 2011. Previously the return dates shown for nuclear groups on outages were based on ?the earliest technically feasible?, and will from now on include margins learned from the return of experience over the history of the French fleet.

Therefore the dates displayed in the context of the ?transparency? initiative launched by UFE regarding electricity production information in France should allow the operators to have a better appreciation of the availability forecasts.
