Installing smart gas meters for the GrDF distribution network in France
Competitive and secure energy, energy savings beneficial to 11 million consumers connected to the GrDF network
For this project, it is unlikely that any environmental impact assessments will be required. The main potential impact on the environment is likely from the disposal of the old meters being substituted by this project.
The project will reduce the physical reading and maintenance requirements, thus reducing the Promoter’s car fleet emissions and allowing general efficiency gains for the gas system in France.
The investments under the project are subject to the procurement provisions defined in Directive 2004/17/EC for entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors.
The total project cost period is 2014-2018
