President Emmanuel Macron will make the case for greater investment in renewable sources of energy during a trip next week to an offshore wind turbine site in western France.

Macron is likely to say the need to develop renewable sources of energy, save energy and invest in nuclear reactors to reduce reliance on fossil fuels has become more urgent because of Russia’s war in Ukraine, two people familiar with his schedule said.
