Winner of the 1st call for a show of interest of the ADEME on smart grids, the Modelec project, in partnership with the Observatoire Sociologique (sociological observatory) of the Sorbonne in particular, has just come to an end. This experiment on the control of energy consumption carried out with 500 customers provided a great deal of information.
Modelec is a tool that allows the control of energy consumption through a user-friendly platform that can be accessed from a computer, a tablet or a mobile telephone. This control allows everyone to better master their energy consumption. Each adjustment in consumption brought to the level of the population of a territory represents major savings. In this manner consumers can achieve a reduction of peak consumption as well as optimisation of electrical system operation.
