Lo scenario presentato dal gruppo di ricercatori dell'associazione francese NegaWatt conclude che con azioni e tecnologie rivolte alla sufficienza (utilizzare energia solo ove questa fornisce servizi significativi, scegliere modalità a bassa energia) ed efficienza (ridurre la quantità di energia richiesta a parità di risultato) è possibile ridurre del 50% i consumi della Francia entro il 2050. ​E coprire il restante 50% completamente con fonti rinnovabili.
