Nice Grid (France)

The NiceGrid smart district demonstrator project, developed with ERDF, the French Distribution System Operator, and located in the city of Nice (South Coast of France), aims at developing several microgrids with integrated renewable energy sources and electricity storage. The objective to provide optimised energy management and increased energy autonomy to a region providing only 40% of the electricity it consumes. Alstom contributes through distribution-level smart grid monitoring platforms to pilot and coordinate all resources in the microgrids.
