EcoWatt PACA

The Principality of Monaco joined RTE’s initiative to set up the ÉcoWatt PACA website in 2010. The site is a tool which predicts winter days on which peak electricity demand is expected to be experienced across the region between the hours of 6 pm and 8 pm, and alerts users accordingly. Through the site, it is possible to monitor the status of the electricity network in the eastern PACA region in real time, allowing individuals, businesses and communities in the region to adapt their consumption as part of an eco-citizen approach.
