Breaking Down the Role of the Video Editing Supervisor

first_imgWe cover everything you need to know about the Video Editing Supervisor, how to work with one, and how you can become one.While there are arguments to make about the value of every aspect of a film or video project’s production, I’ve always felt that the post-production process is truly the most important. Yes, a person writing a script wields unlimited possibility, and a pre-production team can decide on any manner of roles, styles, or locations. A director and a DP can build a world visually from the ground up. But it’s the post team — the video editors and motion artists — who ultimately bring everything together.The video editing process is where all the great pieces of the puzzle finally come together. And, more often than not, all the problems or mistakes contained therein get fixed. The final product is something everyone can be proud of.When you’re just starting off, whether you’re a solo producer and shooter or an aspiring editor learning the ropes, the editing process can seem pretty straightforward. You shoot footage, take it into the edit, and boom — you’re done.However, as you’ll quickly learn once you get into the world of turnkey video production companies and full-service post-production houses, the editing role quickly becomes very complicated, often requiring many different editors with many different specialties and roles.At the heart of these bigger post-production houses and workflows are the all-important video editing supervisors. So, let’s go over what the title is, what the role entails, and how to become one.What Is a Video Editing Supervisor?A Video Editing Supervisor has many roles in the editing process. (Image by FrameStockFootages.)A video editing supervisor is a person (or sometimes persons) who plans, coordinates, oversees, and reviews every step of a video edit in the post-production process.This is a middle-management type of role; a video editing supervisor works directly with clients to understand the scope of their video editing projects and to coordinate the work with a team of editors. These projects can be for a few simple edits or upwards of hundreds of individual videos and deliverables.Defining the Role and WorkflowThe Video Editing Supervisor oversees a number of technical aspects of a project. (Image by senrakawa.)While the role may vary from company to company, generally speaking, a video editing supervisor is directly above a team of editors. This includes any number of senior, junior, and assistant editors, as well as color correction and audio specialists, and all manner of motion graphics, 2D and 3D animators, and all post-production providers.In my experience, working in-house with a medium-sized, full-service video production company (with around twenty employees), the video editing supervisor would be the point person once a project wrapped shooting. All footage, assets, and information from clients goes to the video editing supervisor, who then directs the workflow.This often includes — but is not limited to — the following:Safely securing and backing up all footage.Organizing all footage, files, and assets.Creating a project timeline.Giving assignments, roles, and deadlines.Checking in and problem-solving setbacks.Organizing exports.Quality control reviews.Managing exports, uploads, etc.Organizing final deliverables.However, by its nature, a lot can go wrong or change during an edit. So, quite often, the video editing supervisor is the one who steps in to make the hard decisions on how to solve these problems. Are important shots out of focus? Did footage get corrupted during an upload? How much time does a motion graphic artist really need to animate a logo?These are questions and problems a video editing supervisor must solve quickly and creatively in the face of an impending deadline.How to Become a Video Editing SupervisorA successful Video Editing Supervisor needs to be able to manage a team and work well with individuals. (Image by Gorodenkoff.)In some ways, it makes sense to say that the video editing supervisor is simply the most senior member of the post-production team. However, that’s not always the case. A good video editing supervisor needs to have a solid background in video editing and understand at least the basics of every program, application, and role on the team.A supervisor also needs to be a good leader, manager, and organizer of many different moving parts. The best video editing supervisors I’ve worked for and with have been a good mix of both — knowledgeable and talented  but also good with people, providing positive support for the rest of the team.If you’re interested in becoming a video editing supervisor, I’d suggest you start as an editor, ideally with a larger company or team. From there, you can move up from assistant to junior to senior, while developing your craft and skills. If you enjoy communicating and working with others, you can branch into the management side of things — the video editing supervisor.Cover image by Gorodenkoff.For more video editing roles, insights, and advice, check out these resources below.The Best Video Editing Programs: Final Cut Pro vs. Premiere ProGlowing Results: Grading Skin Tones in DaVinci ResolveThe Secret to Motion Blur in Adobe Premiere ProA Guide on Soliciting Feedback and Review for Film DraftsPocket 4K and Pocket 6K Owners — BRAW Comes to Premiere Prolast_img read more

Dravid says he was unaware of nomination for Khel Ratna; BCCI says it gave enough info to ministry

first_imgFormer Indian captain Rahul Dravid on Tuesday reacted to the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna controversy claiming that he was unaware about his nomination for the highest sports award in the country.When asked if callousness on part of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) cost one of the greatest Indian batsmen his due, Dravid said, “I am not sure what I have been nominated for. How can I say anything?”Dravid’s statement reflects that he was kept in the dark by the BCCI about his Khel Ratna nomination.The BCCI also reacted on Tuesday after being accused of not having pushed hard Dravid’s case for the Khel Ratna and not fleshing out his exploits in details.BCCI president N. Srinivasan said, “We had proposed Dravid’s name. Do you expect us to lobby? It is not question of giving all the details about a legendary player. Everybody knows him. We gave sufficient information.”Ironically, the BCCI had only included cursory details of Dravid’s record in the last year despite being given ample time to meet the deadline. The deadline for the nominations was extended just to accommodate BCCI’s recommendations.While the achievement columns of most of the other Khel Ratna and Arjuna Award nominees listed their achievements in detail, the BCCI had kept the list of its nominees’ achievements too concise.Dravid was not finally selected by the Union sports ministry’s committee that announced names of London Olympic silver medallist Vijay Kumar (shooting) and bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt (wrestling) for the honour last week.advertisementYuvraj Singh, who has been preparing to stage a comeback after recovering from a rare germ cell cancer, was the only cricketer among the 25 sportsperson who were picked for the Arjuna Award.last_img read more

Greek World Cup Soccer Stars Get Hero’s Welcome Back Home

first_imgATHENS – Greece’s World Cup soccer team, which made it into the round of 16 and came within seconds of advancing further before losing to Costa Rica on penalty shots, was hailed on its return home, with more than 200 supporters turning out at the international airport to hail them.Greece had never before gone so far into the world tournament and after an opening 3-0 thrashing by Colombia, the players picked up their pace and played their hearts out in a thrilling defeat in their last game, with Fanis Gekas leaving the pitch with his head down after his penalty kick was blocked.The cheerleaders had gathered to wait for the players and cheered loudly when they emerged, embracing some of their favorites with the fans chanting in unison.Over 200 supporters greeted the players at Eleftherios Venizelos airport in an impromptu gathering, chanting loudly and embracing them as they made their way through the arrivals hall.“We thank all the people who came here and all Greeks,” midfielder Costas Katsouranis told reporters, Reuters said.”Unfortunately, we could not give them a little more joy for a while longer. We are proud and we thank the fans who recognize this.”Gekas, whose shootout penalty was saved by Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas to send the Greeks out, thanked the supporters. “For me it means so much, such love is the best reward for us,” he said.Although there was no official gathering organized by the Hellenic Football Federation or the government, the state was represented by Deputy Minister for Sport Yiannis Adrianos, who pledged to follow through on the team’s wish to forfeit their bonuses for a new training center.“Today is a day for our national team,” he said. “I want to say a big thank you from the bottom of my heart, like all Greeks. Also, it’s the obligation of the state for the issue of the training center, the Prime Minister’s interest is a given and we will begin planning.”Outgoing Greece coach Fernando Santos, whose contract expired, didn’t show up. He left Brazil ahead of the team and was last year on Portuguese radio in his homeland criticizing the players from afar.Later, he praised the players passion but said they didn’t play with  cooler heads during extra time of their second round match with Costa Rica.“I think I was unable to pass the message to the players when we went to extra time because that was a very difficult moment as the players were very tired and anxious,” Santos told Portuguese state broadcaster RTP.“We were unable to keep a cool head, to think more of the team. But I’m not criticizing any particular player. If we had played differently in extra time we could have obtained an even more historical result.”Santos appeared unhappy about the performance of his players although he said at the same time they had given their all, after earlier saying they were more interested in glory.“No one can say to these players that they don’t have passion for the game,” he said. “I don’t know any other players with such passion. I’ve always told them that if I had to give them a score on a 0-10 scale, I would give them 11.”But the former AEK and PAOK manager said the team had been weak in an organized attack and that players often tried to make up for this through individual efforts, which at times held the team back.“In organized attacks we always had a problem,” he said. “In organized attacks our players were very individualistic and in a tournament like this that individualism damages the confidence of the team when it attacks.”“I didn’t want to criticize the players in any way. The players were brilliant, they gave everything on the field and I’m very proud of having worked with them these four years. But my job as a coach is to say what I think, what went well and what went wrong.”Santos suggested that there is a wider tendency for Greek soccer players to focus on individual efforts, often mistaking this for creativity.“In Greece there is confusion between creativity and anarchy… and it is hard to get the Greek player to abandon this mentality,” said the 59-year-old.“There’s no lack of quality in Greece. The Greek player, contrary to what people may think, has quality. Even those who were in Euro 2004 had a lot of quality. It was a great team. But it would be hard to change the mentality of those players. In the same way, you will never change the mentality of the players today, which is to have the the tendency to exaggerate their individuality.”Santos, known as in Portugal “o engenheiro” (the engineer) due to his engineering background, singled out Giorgos Karagounis, the midfielder who announced his retirement from international soccer after 139 appearances, for praise.“Karagounis is the real Greek player: The passion, the individual characteristics, he is a symbol, he has such an indescribable love for the Greek shirt,” he said.Santos said the national team has a bright future, noting that there 13 new players in the squad compared to the one that took part in the 2010 World Cup. When asked about Olympiakos central defender Costas Manolas, Santos indicated that he has the potential to become a world class player.“This kid is fast and has a fantastic leap, he is very strong in one-on-one, but he can develop in some aspects,” he said. “For instance, he should take less risk because he is a defender. David Luiz and Ricardo Carvalho also had that problem initially – sometimes they forgot they were defenders and started playing like a forward.”Santos also stressed the role he had played in developing the grassroots of Greek soccer in his four years in charge of the national set-up.“If there is something that I think I left in Greece – beyond the results and the friendship with people and the relationship with Greek people – it’s the legacy I left at the Greek federation, where I helped create the structure of Greek soccer,” he said.“Now there is under-15 soccer, there is a national tournament with scouting of 14-year-olds which didn’t exist before. Also, there is a data base – you can go to the Greek federation at any hour of the day or the night, you click one button and you know everything you want about the players and their careers. That was created by me and my team.”The former Benfica and Porto coach said he turned down an offer to manage Gabon. He also clarified why he did not sign a new contract with the Hellenic Football Federation and that he would not rule out a return to Greece in the future.“They proposed a new contract and I didn’t accept,” he said. “They told me that was the maximum the Greek federation could pay. I considered that it wasn’t enough. We didn’t reach an agreement. There is no fight, no resentment. These four years were great, it was work I really enjoyed but it’s the end.“If you ask me if I would like to coach again the national team of another country, the answer might be different, but if you ask me if I would like to coach the Portuguese team one day, naturally I would. Similarly, if you ask me if I could coach again the Greek team, I can’t say ‘no’ because of the feelings I have for the Greek people.” TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Super Salah bags two in victory over Southampton

first_imgLiverpool 3 Southampton 0: Record-breaking Salah blows Saints away Iain Strachan Last updated 1 year ago 00:53 11/19/17 mohamedsalah - cropped Getty Images Mohamed Salah surpassed a long-standing Robbie Fowler achievement to fire Liverpool to a comfortable 3-0 win over Southampton. Liverpool defeated Southampton 3-0 in the Premier League to seize on Tottenham’s north London derby defeat, as Mohamed Salah broke a Robbie Fowler record and Philippe Coutinho shone on his return to the starting XI.Egypt international Salah struck twice in the space of 10 first-half minutes to put the hosts firmly in charge against the lacklustre Saints.In doing so Salah, signed from Roma for a club-record fee in June, notched the ninth goal from his first 12 Premier League appearances on Merseyside, surpassing Liverpool’s previous best of eight from 12 set by Fowler in 1993.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The ex-Chelsea attacker’s exploits have helped to disguise the defensive failings of Jurgen Klopp’s side, although they were not at risk of being exposed by the toothless away team at Anfield on Saturday.Coutinho, named in the side from kick-off after recovering from a thigh injury, set up Salah’s second and scored the third himself in a performance that demonstrated the continuing importance of a player targeted heavily by Barcelona in the off-season.And the victory, Liverpool’s fourth in succession in all competitions, means they are just one point behind fourth-placed Champions League qualification rivals Spurs, who lost 2-0 at neighbours Arsenal earlier in the day, as Klopp’s attention turns to the crunch away match against Sevilla on Tuesday.Three goals, three points.A pleasing return from the international break for the Reds! pic.twitter.com/kF6GX94Kdu— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 18, 2017The visitors almost gifted Liverpool the lead in the ninth minute, as Virgil van Dijk’s mistake, Cedric Soares’ missed clearance and a Fraser Forster fumble saw the ball fall to Salah, but the Egypt international’s shot was deflected wide.Another error prompted Liverpool’s opener to arrive in the 31st minute and this time Dusan Tadic was to blame, the Serbia international losing possession after attempting to dribble the ball clear following a corner.A quick exchange of passes after the turnover saw Georginio Wijnaldum tee up Salah, who curled a brilliant strike into the top left corner from 20 yards.Southampton’s defence were found badly wanting for the second goal 10 minutes later.Coutinho glided forward unopposed and prodded a clever pass into the area, which Salah raced on to and slid between the legs of the helpless Forster.The current #PL top scorer… pic.twitter.com/zns1R3t9Er — Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 18, 2017 Southampton enjoyed a rare sight of goal six minutes into the second half, Sofiane Boufal cutting into the area from the left but seeing his shot blocked by the massed ranks of the Liverpool defence.Coutinho went close four minutes later, dribbling directly at goal and shooting narrowly wide with Forster scrambling.The England international shot-stopper was left with no chance five minutes later. He did well to parry a fierce Roberto Firmino strike from a tight angle on the right side of the penalty area, but the rebound fell kindly to Coutinho, who steered home a cool finish to put the result beyond any doubt. Key Opta stats:- Liverpool have won three consecutive Premier League games for the first time in 2017, having last done so in December 2016 (a run of four wins).  – This was Jurgen Klopp’s first victory over Southampton in the Premier League (W1 D3 L1), meaning he has now won against 21 of the 23 teams he has faced in the competition – only against Manchester United (4) and Newcastle United (3) has he failed to win.- Mohamed Salah has netted nine goals in the Premier League this term; the most by any Liverpool player in their first 12 appearances in the competition.- Southampton have scored only nine goals in the Premier League this term; their fewest after 12 games of a top-flight campaign since 1998-99 (also nine), when they finished 17th and avoided relegation by just five points. – Philippe Coutinho has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 15 appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League (10 goals and four assists). – Indeed, the Brazilian (31) is now the player with the third-most assists for Liverpool in Premier League history, with only Steven Gerrard (92) and Steve McManaman (58) having made more. read morelast_img read more

Quebec sweating death three coaccused lose appeal of their convictions

first_imgMONTREAL – Three Quebecers have lost an appeal of their conviction in connection with the extreme-sweating death of a woman who was wrapped in mud and cellophane at a personal-growth seminar.The Quebec Court of Appeal has also refused to hear an appeal of the prison sentences imposed on Gabrielle Frechette, Ginette Duclos and Gerald Fontaine.The court has ordered them to head to prison by Nov. 17 for the death of Chantal Lavigne as well in the case of another woman who survived the harrowing experience.Lavigne, 35, died in July 2011 after a sweating session organized by the accused.Participants were plastered with mud, wrapped in a plastic sheet and a blanket and had their heads covered with cardboard boxes for nine hours.A coroner described the process as the equivalent of being cooked alive.The accused were found guilty in December 2014 of criminal negligence causing death and were sentenced in January 2016.Frechette, who was considered a spiritual guide and organized the seminar in Durham-Sud, was sentenced to three years, while her two assistants were handed two-year prison terms.“The evidence shows beyond all reasonable doubt that the acts reflected a wild and reckless lack of concern with regard to the life and safety of the victims,” Quebec court Judge Helene Fabi wrote in 2014.The three were also found guilty of criminal negligence causing bodily harm in the case of one other person, while other people attending the seminar also fell ill.The appeal alleged, however, that the trial judge erred in concluding their behaviour constituted a marked and considerable departure from how a reasonable person would have behaved in the same circumstances.But Justice Patrick Healy, on behalf of a three-member appeals court panel, wrote Tuesday that the sentences “are not unfit.”“They are not only within an acceptable range; they are arguably lenient,” Healy said. “Second, there is no error of principle and there is no failure to consider a relevant matter of fact or a guiding principle of sentencing.“The sentencing judge provides a thorough review of factual considerations relevant to each of the appellants.”Frechette’s lawyer, Richard Dube, said he is studying the possibility of seeking permission from the Supreme Court of Canada to have it look at the case with the goal of having the guilty verdict struck down.last_img read more

King Mohammed VI Congratulates Donald Trump on His Election as President

Rabat – King Mohammed VI has sent a message of congratulations to Donald Trump following his election as President of the United States of America.In this message, the Sovereign expressed to Trump His best wishes for success in this new mission and endeavors to lead the American people towards further progress and prosperity.“Your election as President of the United States of America attests to the American people’s trust in you and the high esteem in which they hold you, thanks to your true commitment to serving their lofty interests and your extensive professional experience,” the King said, adding that these qualities will enable Trump not only to help them make further achievements in all fields, but also to consolidate the country’s status as an influential global player. King Mohammed VI also seized this opportunity to highlight the close friendship and mutual esteem between the two peoples, as well as the solid, historic bonds between the two countries, expressing His determination to work with Trump to achieve optimal implementation of the strategic partnership between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States of America.“I am also keen to enhance dialogue, coordination and consultation between our two countries on all issues of common interest, particularly with regard to the growing challenges posed to world peace and security, in order to counter all forms of extremism, violence and terrorism and to help find just and peaceful solutions to conflicts and tensions around the globe,” the Sovereign stressed.King Mohammed VI also expressed His appreciation for USA’s continued support and keen interest in the major structural reforms initiated in the kingdom with a view to promoting Morocco’s comprehensive development, as well as in efforts aimed at achieving peace and stability in the region and in the various initiatives to build an integrated Maghreb Union that can help protect the region against the security threats it is facing and ensure the progress and prosperity of its peoples. read more

Recent developments highlight challenges facing Libyas transition says UN envoy

“Given the legacy bequeathed to the Libyan people by the former regime, the process of democratic transition will surely face an array of obstacles requiring long-term responses,” said Tarek Mitri, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).“The past few weeks have seen increased political polarisation in the debate over the draft political isolation law, and attempts to openly undermine the authority of the democratically-elected bodies and legitimate institutions of the State,” he added.A political crisis arose during recent weeks from the controversy over a proposed law on political isolation, proponents of which argue that it is a necessary tool to protect the revolution and ensure that those who corrupted public life in the past are excluded from holding public office.“While there is strong support for such a law in some quarters, the debate over its adoption has been politically divisive,” noted Mr. Mitri. “In its current form, the draft law contains an extensive list of criteria, many of them based on affiliation, and would apply to a wide range of public office holders at national and local levels, including elected officials and the judiciary. The draft law is also silent on how it is to be implemented.“The legitimacy of adopting measures to exclude individuals who committed serious human rights violations from holding public office constitutes a valid transitional justice measure,” he stated. “However, in meetings with political leaders and Congress members, we have consistently urged caution on the adoption of the law, and highlighted international standards that ought to apply to any vetting mechanism.”A special session last week of the General National Congress to discuss the draft law ended in “disarray” after protesters threatened to use force unless Congress members voted to adopt the draft law. This was followed by the attempted assassination of the head of the Congress, as well as other attacks and acts of violence. Libya has been undergoing a transition toward a modern democratic State, after decades of autocratic rule and the toppling of the regime of Muammar al-Qadhafi. The former leader ruled the North African country for more than 40 years until a pro-democracy uprising in 2011 – similar to the protests in other countries in the Middle East and North Africa – led to civil war and the end of his regime.Mr. Mitri said that despite the fact that the Libyan people have come a long way since the liberation of the country 17 months ago, the security problem remains “formidable,” and is arguably the predominant concern for most Libyans. “Significant progress in improving the country’s precarious security situation remains hampered by weak state institutions and security coordination mechanisms, as well as continuing mistrust of the State’s security forces by many of those who fought during the revolution, most of whom remain armed,” said the envoy.“The country remains awash with unsecured weapons and munitions that continue to pose a regional security risk given Libya’s porous borders.”Mr. Mitri said that, in spite of these difficulties, the Government led by Prime Minister Ali Zeidan – who also addressed the Council’s meeting today – is resolved to move forward expeditiously to enhance security and address the various problems pertaining to the proliferation of weapons and continued presence of armed groups outside the legitimate control of the State. “UNSMIL will continue to provide assistance in this regard,” pledged Mr. Mitri. In addition to discussing the situation in Libya, the Council also adopted a resolution extending UNSMIL’s mandate for another 12 months, as recommended by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in his recent report. UNSMIL is tasked with continuing its assistance to the Government in defining the national priorities related to its democratic transition and efforts to build a modern, accountable State based on the rule of law and respect for human rights. By the terms of the resolution, the Council also extended the mandate of the Panel of Experts assisting the Libya Sanctions Committee for 12 more months. In addition, it decided to partially lift the arms embargo on Libya and gradually ease the asset freeze on some Libyan financial institutions. read more

Buildings and buses are key issues for new BUSU executive

Representing Brock’s undergraduate students for 2011/12 are, from left, Daud Grewal, Jayne Stewart, Will Parent and Luke Speers.Daud Grewal’s next year as president of the Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU) will be anything but boring. He’s got transit on his hands, a constituency of 17,000 and a brand new building in his future.Grewal will spend 2011/12 at the helm of the organization that represents Brock’s undergraduate students. One of his biggest priorities: a potential new building on weather station field that could have new media space, student clubs lounges and a student justice centre, among other amenities.In a referendum this month, undergraduate students voted 89 per cent in favour of BUSU accessing $2 million in restricted funds, $1.5 million of which will be for the new building. Another half a million will be used to renovate Union Station, which should be finished this fall.Much of Grewal’s term will be spent getting student input on the new building, which will be built in partnership with the University. He wants as much input from students as possible, he said.“I’m really excited about what’s to come,” said Grewal, a Political Science student. “We want to have focus groups. We want to conduct surveys and have renderings to show the students. We want to take questions. Student input is key.”Joining Grewal on the BUSU executive is Jayne Stewart, 21, of Niagara-on-the-Lake. She is a third-year Kinesiology student and will serve as vice-president of student services. Waterloo native Luke Speers, 21, is the new vice-president of university affairs. He is a fourth-year Philosophy and Political Science student. Will Parent, who is studying Mathematics and Geography, is 23 and a native of Midland. He’s the new vice-president of finance and administration.All of them say they want to increase awareness amongst the students of what BUSU does. That includes the dental and health benefits, a student ombudsman, more than 50 student clubs and opportunities to serve on councils and committees, Speers said.“All of these services are here, but we haven’t gone out and told them,” he said. “We want to say, ‘These services are here for you. Come and use them.’”BUSU will continue to lobby for a more efficient transit system for Brock students, Grewal said. Its goals include seeing the University eventually be included as a stop in a new service this fall that will link the downtowns of St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Welland. read more

Energie éolienne la France natteindra probablement pas ses objectifs

first_imgEnergie éolienne : la France n’atteindra probablement pas ses objectifsLes experts du cabinet Xerfi ont réalisé une étude sur le développement de l’énergie éolienne en France, et les capacités du pays à atteindre les objectifs fixés à l’horizon 2020 dans le cadre du Grenelle de l’Environnement. Publiés lundi, les résultats de cette étude sont peu encourageants.Lors du Grenelle de l’Environnement, la France s’est fixée pour ambition de produire d’ici à 2020, 23% d’énergie renouvelable, et 25.000 mégawatts (MW) de puissance éolienne installée. Mais selon le cabinet d’études Xerfi, la France ne parviendra pas à atteindre ces objectifs. Dans l’étude baptisée “Le marché français de l’éolien soumis à des vents contraires”, les experts estiment en effet que “le parc éolien français ne dépassera pas 15.000 mégawatts à terme”, rapporte l’AFP.À lire aussiLe Maroc inaugure Noor 1, l’une des plus grandes centrales solaires au mondeD’après les estimations réalisées par Xerfi, 400 à 500 nouvelles éoliennes devraient chaque année être installées en France. Mais cela ne suffira pas à remplir les objectifs du Grenelle. “Moins de 1.000 MW auront été connectés au réseau électrique en 2010”, soulignent les experts, quand 20.000 MW supplémentaires seront nécessaires d’ici à 2020 pour que se réalisent les ambitions du pays.Et les objectifs seront d’autant plus difficiles à atteindre que l’Etat a durci au cours des deux dernières années les conditions d’implantation des fermes éoliennes, notent les experts. “Un certain nombre de décisions ont ainsi secoué la profession et retardé la maturation des projets”, explique également le rapport, évoquant notamment le report d’un programme offshore prévu au large de Noirmoutier.Le 11 janvier 2011 à 17:14 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more
