(i) The consumption figures shown in the diagram are taken from real-time measurements. These are raw data, and may be corrected subsequently. To view records of consolidated figures, click here.

The National Control Center (Centre National d'Exploitation du Système - CNES) constantly matches generation and the power needs of consumers.

Electricity demand varies throughout the day and seasons. It is represented by a load curve, the forecast of which CNES draws up every day.

CNES makes sure that the generation schedules planned by the various power suppliers meet the total consumption requirements.

The diagram shows in quarter-hourly points the variations

  • of French power consumption during the current day ;
  • of the forecasts estimated the previous day ;
  • of the forecast estimated the current day and published generally at 2.30 pm.

Any deviations are mainly due to changes in weather conditions compared with the forecast data (temperature and luminosity).

Auto consumption of generating units (consumption of auxiliary transformer) is not taken into account neither in the estimated consumption forecasts nor in the displayed power consumption.




RTE shall not be held responsible for any use that might be made of the data made available,
nor in case of forecasts which might prove to be inaccurate.
