Once again, this weekly decrease is

"largely concentrated in the industrial sector, in a context of rising energy prices"

, he underlines.

"The downward effect in the residential and tertiary sector exists but is more reduced, and more difficult to characterize finely in recent weeks"

"With the exception of a few isolated days in November, the temperatures have remained well above normal (seasonal) for more than a month"

, reducing the need for electricity for heating, particularly in private homes, notes RTE.

In a context of energy crisis, the network operator has set up weekly monitoring of electricity consumption in mainland France.

The published data was

“aligned with normal temperatures for the period”

and is independent of the exceptionally mild values ​​recorded in France in October and November.
