Record of power consumption

  • Data is now available on Data portal

The data given below show power consumption in France. The figures include losses on all networks, but do not take into account capacity withdrawn by hydro-electric installations for pumping purposes. The consumption figures shown cover total power consumed in metropolitan France (excepted Corsica).

For information, the data supplied are calculated on the basis of load curves per 10 minute period. Figures are validated by RTE's regional units, which add missing values and correct erroneous data. These data are completed by estimated values for consumed power from generation on the distribution networks and private industrial networks.

This section presents the half-hourly points of the corresponding load curves per 10 minute period.
