The given pie charts compare the contribution of coal, gas, petroleum, nuclear, and other sources in France’s energy production during 1995 and 2005. (Introductory statement)
Let us structure the paragraphs on the basis of years.
During 1995, though coal was the largest contributor to energy production in France, gas and petroleum ware equally important. Cumulatively, these three sources produced about 90 percent of the country’s energy. Nuclear power contributed just 6.4 percent to energy production, while other sources contributed only 4.9 percent. (One paragraph on 1995)
From 1995 to 2005, the share of coal increased by one percent, while that of gas increased by 0.6 percent. Petroleum’s contribution to energy production fell drastically to just 19.55 percent. On the other hand, the share of nuclear power increased to 10.10 percent and that of other sources swell to 9.1 percent. (One paragraph on 2005 reflecting changes as well)
Overall, the share of coal and gas increased marginally while that of nuclear power and other sources of power increased significantly at the expense of petroleum.
