France’s export balance with Great Britain ended the year at 13 TWh, an increase from 2017 even though exchange capacity was limited to 1.5 GW between 9 March and 5 May due to the partial unavailability of the France-England interconnection (IFA) following an incident on a cable.

The line was used very little for imports from Great Britain to France, with the notable exception of the cold spell of late February/early March and the week of 19 November, when prices were high in France. The line was only used for imports during 493 one-hour periods, down from 1,947 in 2017.
