A charter has been signed between the Electricity Transport Network (RTE) (found behind the EcoWatt system) and the Aude Energy and Digital Syndicate.
Backed by the Electricity Transmission Network (RTE) and the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), EcoWatt is a system that will provide real-time information to companies, individuals and public actors of the level of accessible electricity. “This is an alert system which indicates the periods when the French are called upon to reduce or shift their electricity consumption. The objective of this tool is to monitor the good supply of energy for all while adopting responsible energy consumption”recently explained Gilles Odone, RTE Méditerranée delegate, on the occasion of the signing of an agreement with the Syndicat audois d’énergies et du numérique (SYADEN).
For the Syaden, it is a question of contributing to offering, in times of high tension, the tools useful for the good supply of all in electricity to avoid having to face with interruptions of services whose risk is real. By adhering to the EcoWatt system, the union displays “its desire to support accountability within its territory”, argued that day Régis Banquet, the president of Syaden.
“If tomorrow, in the event of a red signal, RTE decides to cut off the electricity, there will be repercussions. This is why we have to work together to best manage these power cuts and ensure that that everything goes well. The idea is to work with them to assess the consequences that this would have on the territory of Carcassonne Agglo. In order to anticipate and avoid unfortunate cuts “, detailed Régis Banquet. By signing the charter, Syaden also undertakes to “serve as a transmission belt” with municipalities, businesses and citizens.
