Electricity consumption forecasts are given for information only from D+2 to D+7. These are based on consumption levels and meteorological conditions observed over the previous 7 days, and the meteorological forecasts for the coming 7 days. They may, therefore, vary significantly in terms of both form and level.

These forecasts are updated every working day.

Since the 1st November 2003, RTE has been able to measure total electricity demand in France, by taking into account all generating plants

Auto consumption of generating units (consumption of auxiliary transformer) is not taken into account in the estimated consumption forecasts.

(*) In winter, a higher temperature than reference temperature leads to a drop in consumption, a lower temperature than reference temperature to a rise in consumption (heating effect). In summer, this may be the contrary (air conditioning effect).

(**) Nebulosity, measured in octas, represents the extent of the cloud covering (from 0 for a clear sky to 8 for a completely overcast sky, the normal value being 6). i.e. higher nebulosity than usual leads to a rise in demand.
