(Montel) EDF has increased its nuclear output target for this year to 345-365 TWh, thanks to a pick-up in output and demand in the first half.

The firm had been aiming for 330-360 TWh but raised the target due to “good progress over the first half of the year”, EDF said on Tuesday.

In the first six months of the year, nuclear output was up 4.2% to 181.6 TWh, compared with January-June 2020, when the first coronavirus lockdown seriously affected demand starting in March, TSO data showed on Thursday.  

At the same time, EDF said its 2022 nuclear output target remained unchanged “at this stage” at 330-360 TWh.

In 2020, the firm’s nuclear output fell 12% year on year, or 44.5 TWh, to 335 TWh due mainly to the impact of the pandemic on its reactor maintenance schedule.
