Recently, Carrefour has teamed up with EcoWatt, the “electricity weather forecasting service” developed by France’s electrical transmission operator RTE, with the support of France’s energy and environmental management agency ADEME.
The Ecowatt Charter is a scheme which provides real time information about the quantities of electricity available to supply French consumers. It provides individuals and corporation with guidance so that they can cultivate eco-friendly habits. A warning system informs people whether they should reduce or postpone their electricity consumption. In that way can outages be avoided, and duration can be reduced.
“Carrefour’s goal is simple: be in a position to reduce its stores’, warehouses’ and shopping centres’ electricity consumption as much as possible when warnings are issued, and fulfil our duty to lead by example,” said Carrefour Group CEO Alexandre Bompard. “Given how many stores we have and the role that we play in our sector, engaging with thousands of suppliers and millions of customers, we want to be part of the national effort and show that we can, by doing lots of little and big things, as a company, but also on our own, make a difference.”
As a supplier of Carrefour, we also share the same goal with Carrefour. Truecooltech is committed to promoting the production of energy-saving equipment to preserve energy and protect environment.
