Disclosure of Power Consumption

Disclosure of Power Consumption
Electricity suppliers must inform final customers concerning the origin of the electricity they consume. They are obliged by law to show the share of each energy source used to produce the electricity that they supplied. This may be down via existing electricity billing and invoices or via an additional attached document.

French national mix

The following energy mixes are computed using the production data of RTE and the Guarantee of Origin mechanism.

Production mix

The production mix represents the share of each source of energy in the country's power production.

Consumption mix

The consumption mix represents the share of each source of energy in the country's actual power consumption. The French consumption mix is calculated from the import and export-adjusted national power production, as monitored by the Guarantee of Origin mechanism.

Residual mix

The residual mix represents the share of all sources of energy in the electricity that is not traced by Guarantees of Origin.

How to calculate the mix?

1. Determine the volume to be disclosed

2. Cancel your Guarantees of Origin

3. Determine your residual electricity
