French nuclear group Areva’s order book at the end of the year for renewable energies will amount to €1bn, CEO Anne Lauvergeon told the French media.

In an interview with French Radio France Info, Lauvergeon said renewable energies, such as wind power and biomass, represent around 3% of Areva’s annual revenue.

Areva, which is 93% state-controlled, is a nuclear reactor specialist.
