Nice Grid : A smart solar district



Nice Grid is a smart solar district pilot project conducted in the southern French town of Carros, conducted by ERDF and funded by ADEME, in which up to several hundred of residential and business customers will participate. The project’s objective is to test the operation of a “smart” power grid with enhanced communication and response capabilities, including a high proportion of dispersed solar power sources connected to individual energy storage units.

Nice Grid will develop an energy management system that will optimize the balance between power consumption and generation of electricity at the district level.

In this project, nke Watteco provides an electric heater solution tool via the Linky meter, which contributes to the decrease in electricity demand during peak periods.
