Using our grid to accelerate the energy transition

Corporate
Energetic transition
arrow
Greenhouse-gas emissions are continuing to increase and temperatures are continuing to climb across the globe. It is becoming urgent for us to reduce the impact of human activity. It is vital that we take measures to step up the energy transition. This means changing our energy consumption and generation patterns. RTE is a front-line player.

Changing the energy mix is essential if we want to generate carbon-free electricity. However, it also poses other problems: the intermittent nature of renewables, their unequal geographical distribution and new uses of electrical power. RTE’s challenge is to accommodate these new means of power generation and consumption, by developing flexibility mechanisms to continue maintaining security of supply and electrical solidarity, both in France and across Europe.
The energy transition is underway. Discussions on how to complete it must be informed by objective assessments. Who is better qualified than RTE when it comes to providing them? A pivotal component of France’s and Europe’s power system, RTE is an expert on the subject. It controls the grid and its power flows whilst also overseeing infrastructure maintenance. At a national and regional level, it has all the consumption records it needs at its fingertips. Bringing together all the necessary skillsets, RTE informs public energy policy-makers by providing them with its data and impact studies.
Responsible energy consumption concerns everyone, including ourselves. But where do we start? Simple routine habits can have a significant effect if everyone applies them. RTE considers that controlled consumption is a driving force behind the energy transition. In fact, a good electricity consumer is an informed consumer. RTE has designed tools to inform users about power consumption in France and help them better control their own consumption.
