Géographie de la production d'énergie en France. VII. Les sites isolés (Lacq, les Houillères du Centre-Midi) et les "châteaux d'eau" (Alpes, Pyrénées, Massif Central)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Lacq is the very type of regular, isolated site. Still nowadays, Houillères du Bassin du Centre et du Midi (coal mines of the Center and South Basin) actually consist of a group of about ten coal fields. However they are small fields since they supply a total quantity of energy which is actually lower than that produced by Lacq. In addition a short term shut-down will affect a number of these fields. At last, water reserves supply an homogeneous production but it is an even more diffuse one since we have to on wide areas which cover several tens of thousands of square miles.
