[en] After having outlined that the future security of supply of electric power will be an always more important issue, and recalled the simultaneous objectives which are as well essential (carbon neutrality by 2050, a still affordable electricity price), the author shows that it would be inconsistent to implement new means of production supposed to reduce CO2 emissions while questioning both other objectives again. He shows that this is the case for the present European energy policy for technical reasons and for a question of governance. Thus, he first describes how announced technological evolutions are bearing increased hazards: hazards due to the lack or weakening of wind and photovoltaic primary flows, the uncertainty related to the possibility of energy storage/de-storage to eliminate risks of wind and photovoltaic non-production, hazards related to the massive introduction of digital technologies for the large scale operation of wind and photovoltaic production means. Then, the author discusses the actual existence of a pilot for the global governance of the electric power system: discussion and critics of the roles of the different institutions, lack of consideration of expertise by decision-makers, inconsistency in the end, discussion of the French case (lack of rational justification, inconsistency with climate objectives, massive weakening of the security of supply). The author finally discusses the emergence of risks of energy withdrawal beyond occasional periodic electric power outages.
