    A French company producing renewable electricity Voltalia announced on Thursday that it will sign with Renault Distribution Agreement Solar power For 350 MW of power, it will allow the carmaker to cover half of its electricity consumption in the long run. Voltalia considers this to be the biggest distribution deal Renewable electricity Signed in France between the electricity producer and the client company. “The contract covers a total capacity of 350 MW, representing a production of around 500 GWh per year. Lasting for 15 years, this is an unprecedented commitment in France in terms of power,” Voltalia said in a press release. It generates and sells electricity from this group Wind power plants, solar, hydraulic, biomass and storage. Thanks to the photovoltaic panels to be installed on Renault sites by Voltalia, the capacity available to the car manufacturer will be “100 MW from 2025” and will reach 350 MW in 2027, allowing Renault to offset up to 50%. “electricity consumption of its manufacturing operations” in France, Voltalia underlines. Renault has set itself the goal of halving Carbon emissions Its sites...
    Chargeguru, a charging solutions provider, conducted a study on the charging habits of electric car drivers and the evolution of their household energy consumption. 67 families have been established Thick head Between January 2020 and August 2021, they agreed to share their electricity consumption data. Most of the participants (57) have a 7.4 kW terminal at home, a good compromise of charging solutions, which allows them to regain about 40 km of autonomy per hour. 8 houses have a 3.7 kW terminal, a very economical solution when you drive little or when the electricity consumption of the house is already high. Because it is necessary to observe the consumption peaks that can be generated by recharging its electric vehicle, as the maximum power subscribed is high, all cutouts must be avoided. According to the analysis of Chargeguru, after installing the charging station, there is a 28% increase in the daily peak consumption value, which goes from 2.9 to 3.7 kW.

    VLADIMIR Putin unleashed a kamikaze drone blitz on Kyiv as explosions rocked the centre of Ukraine's capital for the second time in a week. The bombing raid comes seven days after the tinpot tyrant launched deadly revenge raids for the Kerch Bridge bombing - killing at least 25 people. 1Kyiv was hit by kamikaze drones this morningCredit: Getty Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones struck the country's energy provider in the Shevchenkiv district early this morning as air raid sirens wailed.  Up to nine separate explosions were heard across the city from 6am onwards and are ongoing.  Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko said several residential buildings were damaged along with sites belonging to Ukraine's energy provider as plumes of smoke rose above the city.  Unconfirmed videos posted online showed residents running for their lives as a fireball rose from an apartment block.  Klitschko posted images showing the burnt fragments of one kamikaze drone that attacked the city.  Overnight strikes also hit other Ukraine cities including Mykolaiv.  President Volodymyr Zelensky urged the country to ration power usage as Putin attempts to turn out the lights between...
    After Bouygues Telecom, Free and Orange, the parent company of SFR Altice also announces new actions to tackle the energy crisis that will develop this winter, it’s time for energy moderation. For operators in the context of overall power crisis. Aldis France yesterday published its action plan to drive energy efficiency across its various companies, including the operator SFR but also the BFM and RMC channels. Each operator makes its announcements in this sense: free, for example, entrusted to us Turn off some frequencies at night For its part, Orange announced that it will implement the switch to save between 5 and 10% of its consumption, depending on the traffic of each site. In electric batteries of several thousand installations of fixed network. Bouygues Telecom has also announced the establishment of an Ecowatt charter. Altice announces its role to enrich the existing program “J’avance avec Altice” aimed at adapting to climate challenges. First, the operator announces that deep automatic standby for SFR TV decoders will be deployed from November. A more advanced standby mode can save up to 90% of...
    l’Winter promises to be harsh, and as temperatures are already cooling, fears of power outages are on the rise. In the face of the current energy crisis, the measures to be taken to avoid power cuts this winter, in particular Ecowatt, the Electric weather forecasting, on its antennas. General Audiovisual Group President Delphine Ernot and RTE (Electrical Transport Network), Xavier Piechasic, Manager of High and Very High Voltage Lines, signed an “unprecedented partnership” in this direction on Friday. Read moreAre small gestures more beneficial to the planet? On its antennas, France Délé will, when the time comes, display pictograms designed as part of the Ecowatt system, allowing users to see in real time the amount of electricity available in the country signaled in three colors: green (normal), orange (tension) and red (high tension, to reduce consumption corresponding to inevitable cuts if nothing is done). In particular, TV viewers will be invited to change their habits according to the on-screen graphic, eg they should moderate their consumption between 8am and 12pm and 6pm and 8pm, during peak hours. “Pay attention when...
    essential The government and some TV channels are thinking of combining classic weather and power weather. Will weather forecasters predict peak electricity consumption soon? In any case, it was a project presented to Matignon and the cabinet of Agnes Pannier Runacher, but also to some of the star presenters who said they were very interested. The website of RTE, the operator of the electricity transmission network, already offers a tool free of charge that makes it possible to regulate electricity consumption. Ecowatt provides real-time information on the consumption levels of the French, by region. Thanks to its warning system, it allows users to know when to reduce their consumption, for example, during cold periods in winter. This allows you to consume at the best time, for example, by starting your washing machine at night. Consume at the best time On April 4, the day of the highest consumption, RTE sent a warning to its subscribers, saving 800 MW “that is twice the consumption of the city of Montpellier and equivalent to the power of “a nuclear...
    (CNN)Millions across Nevada and California are urged to reduce electricity consumption during the holiday weekend as a heat wave continues to smother several states in the West, where crews are also battling wildfires.The latest weather system has put more than 40 million people across California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho under excessive heat warnings through Labor Day weekend. "The abnormally warm airmass will likely tie or break widespread high/low temperature records from the Northern Rockies to the Great Basin and down into southern California this weekend," the National Weather Service said. First on CNN: The rise in extreme heat is taking a toll on our well-being. Its about to get worseTemperatures are forecast to soar to near 110 degrees on Sunday over interior sections of California while parts of Montana will see high temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees above average on Saturday, according to the weather service. Power provider NV Energy, which serves more than 1.5 million homes and businesses throughout Nevada, has asked residents to cut back on their electricity use between the hours of 5 p.m....
    It was a (bad) move many French people took. Place your charger on a power outlet even when no device is connected. As an energy-intensive practice pointed out by the Environmental Change Agency (ADME), could this habit really blow up your electricity bill? Is it really a good idea to leave your mobile charger plugged in all day and night without your phone charging? This habit, taken up by many French people, is pointed out today more than ever, as winter electricity consumption worries the government. A real but finite cost As the Agency for Environmental Change (ADEME) reminds us, the charger uses electricity even when it is not connected to any device. In 2020, energy group ENGIE went further by measuring the consumption of “empty” chargers. Verdict, the cost of this unnecessary consumption is very measurable, since six chargers connected to a power strip will only use 2.6 kWh. End-of-year invoice at current electricity rate at EDF: 57 cents. More powerful chargers Be careful though. He recalled BFM TV, smartphone manufacturers are increasingly offering shorter...
    “It is energy foolish to have two telecom networks in parallel, one on fiber optic and the other on copper.“, team boss Thomas Reynaud managed. Thomas Reynaud, chairman of the Iliad/Free Group, appealed on Tuesday to speed up the timetable for closing the copper network in telecommunications and contribute to the electricity savings requested by the government. “It is energy foolish to have two telecom networks in parallel, one on fiber optic and the other on copper.Thomas Reynaud told reporters as he presented the group’s half-year results. “In areas where fiber is deployed“, for example, in large metropolitan areas,”We need to accelerate copper closure“, he added. In February, Orange presented its plan to close the historic copper network, which should be fully completed by 2030. Group until 2025 “”to prepare» Closure of the network, in particular, tests carried out at the municipal level, then a phase of technical closure of the historical network between 2026 and 2030, with the start of its marketing shutdown.

    08/18/2021 at 08:04 CEST Accelerated take-off of the solar energy installation in homes. Photovoltaic panels for self-consumption (that is, for domestic implementation) have been experiencing a real boom in Catalonia since October 2018, when the repeal of the so-called ‘sun tax’ was announced, an exponential growth that has currently led the community to add a total of 13,296 installations of this type. The elimination of the aforementioned tax (created by the PP Government), together with the exaggerated prices of the electricity bill that the country has been living for months seem to be decisive in the take-off of solar energy in private homes and small businesses. A sample of the vertiginous increase is that only in the first part of this year 5,071 installations have been registered, almost as many as in all of 2020, when Catalonia added a total of 5,866, according to data from the Institut Català d’Energia (Icaen), released by .. Self-consumption of electrical energy consists of the production of electricity for own consumption and is done through photovoltaic solar energy installations that...
    They are very simple, accessible to everyone, and interesting, also taking into account the high electricity rates … Summer is one of the favorite and most anticipated times for many, a few weeks to take a well-deserved rest, travel and disconnect in other places after an intense year. Regarding preparations, packing your suitcase correctly and not forgetting anything is one of the main objectives, however, it is also very important to prepare all household appliances for those weeks of absence properly to avoid unpleasant surprises when you return. In this context, Hisense, offers four simple and useful tips to take care of the refrigerators during these holidays. Turn off the refrigerator It is advisable to disconnect the refrigerator if it is going to be unused for a long period of time. The main reason is savings, since the electrical energy consumption of the refrigerator accounts for more than 30% of the total consumption of all household appliances in the home. Something very to take into account now that the cost of electricity marks all-time highs. According to...
    According to the outlet, Mary Jane's "carbon emissions have never posed a bigger threat to the climate."What's happening?The growth of dope's acceptance in American culture and the state-by-state rules governing its cultivation has made it "one of the most energy-intensive crops in the nation," the paper said, adding that "as states increasingly embrace marijuana, a growing source of greenhouse gases is going essentially unnoticed by climate hawks on Capitol Hill." A big reason for grass' inordinate levels of energy consumption is the fact that it's grown mostly indoors with special lighting and environmental controls that consume up to 2,000 watts of electricity per square meter, Politico said — 40 times what it takes for leafy greens like lettuce to be grown indoors. The reefer industry is responsible for more than 1% of all U.S. electricity consumption, Politico reported, citing citing a research report titled, "Energy Use by the Indoor Cannabis Industry: Inconvenient Truths for Producers, Consumers, and Policymakers." The outlet provided a few specific examples: researchers estimate that Massachusetts' new blaze industry accounted for 10% of the...
    Key facts: The Bitcoin network reached its highest consumption last May. The drop in consumption may be due, in part, to more efficient use of energy. The opinion matrix created on Bitcoin (BTC), the consumption of electricity and its alleged contamination, are losing more and more strength. The University of Cambridge reports today, July 9, that the electricity consumption of Bitcoin fell by 60% in two months, reaching October 2020 levels. The data was taken from the Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index. The study shows that Bitcoin currently consumes 67 terawatt-hours (TWh), while last May it consumed 141 TWh, the highest electricity consumption in the history of the leading cryptocurrency. The previous lowest electricity consumption by mining was in October 2020, when it was at 56 TWh, highlights the report. In the graph you can see the decrease in energy consumption from May to July. The Cambridge data is close to that of a recently published study by the Bitcoin Mining Council. This study shows that the network consumes 180 TW / h. Furthermore, in the...
    The shift to remote work during the pandemic has led to higher utility bills for workers whose residences have been doubling as offices since COVID-19 began spreading and Americans were forced to isolate at home.  Now, in addition to powering their cell phones, computers and other work tools during the 9-to-5 period, homebound professionals are cranking up their air conditioners as temperatures rise across the U.S. "When people are at home you're opening the fridge, making coffee, cooking meals you would otherwise have had at the cafeteria or out. So, in general, being home entails using a lot more residential electricity," said Steve Cicala, a professor of economics at Tufts University who specializes in energy and environmental economics. "Heating and cooling and weather is a part of it, too. As it gets hotter, you are cooling entire houses instead of a business — and that means using more power." Indeed, for the past year, workers with jobs that can be performed virtually have been relying on their home electricity to power the lights, computers and devices that enable them to get...
    To achieve carbon neutrality in 2050, Europe’s new objective since 2018, we are starting to identify the effort to be made within 30 years. This is the result of a study conducted by the University of Cambridge under the auspices of CERRE, the Center for Regulation in Europe. The key to success is the electrification of our energy consumption and the coupling between the gas and electricity sectors. This is the first study conducted with this level of detail: 12 regions (including 8 individual countries) in Europe have been modeled and together they cover the 27 Member States, Great Britain, Switzerland and Norway. Everything that consumes energy has been modeled: buildings, transport, industry … In all, tens of millions of variables and constraints. That it is necessary to electrify is not a surprise to benefit from renewable energies (wind and solar) but to extend the hold of electricity on our energy use, it is also necessary to couple. Reduce total energy consumption in Europe In 2050, total energy consumption in Europe per year should reach 8,246 TWh against 12,347...
    Despite being touted as the ultimate 'green' crop, cannabis is having a major impact on the environment, a new study suggest. Researches at Colorado State University found in Colorado that growing the drug indoors produces more than 30 percent more greenhouse gases than the state's coal mining industry. The team found that the larger carbon foot print is due to plants requiring a lot of energy, such as high-powered lighting and climate-control systems. Although the drug is legal recreationally in 15 US states, many have banned outdoor growing and many keep plants inside to ward off thieves – resulting in a large amount of energy consumption needed to keep them alive.  Scroll down for video Most state where weed is legal require cannabis to be grown indoors. That requires a lot of energy for grow lights and environmental controls, which is generating a lot of greenhouse gases Colorado residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2012. By 2017, the state government was collecting more than $247 million in taxes, licensing fees from the crop. RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1...
    Cyber ​​currencies They have been revolutionizing our conception of the economy for years, currencies, the world of investments, capital trafficking, regulators … I will not say that they have been as revolutionary as fintech companies, which are completely redrawing people’s relationship with their finances, but they have completely changed the conception that the population has about what money is, and incidentally it has also helped many people learn what fiat currency is, and that the gold standard has not been used to issue currency for many decades. Be that as it may, cyber currencies have brought about a revolution not only in financial markets. For example, skyrocketing demand for graphics cards by miners has become a problem. Even with the graphics cards exhausted, some miners in China are opting to buy next-generation laptops with NVIDIA RX 30 graphics to launch cybercurrency mining farms, mainly ethereum. The reason this happens in China is not accidental. And it is that some regions of the country, the poorest, they have electricity rates heavily subsidized by the government, to avoid that the situation of...
    Editorial: Gaming / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums Although the energy consumption of household appliances and electronic devices has improved in order to have a positive impact on the environment, this does not mean that it is an issue that can be left aside and in the case of gaming this becomes relevant when it comes to consoles. Currently, this type of hardware continues to give something to talk about in that sense, because despite the energy saving options, the electricity consumption when staying on is still something to take into account. However, there are also examples to the contrary, such as the Nintendo Switch. The electricity consumption of the consoles is already an issue to consider A Nintendo Life report shared the results obtained by a NerdWallet study, which focused on the power consumption of consoles and how much it translates into spending per year when paying the electricity bill. Although in those countries where the electricity supply is managed by state companies and with subsidies for the sector this may...
    In order to help guarantee the supply of electricity in the face of the effects of a lack of natural gas in the north of the country, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called on the population to reduce consumption between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. Meanwhile, the Mexican Association of the Automotive Industry (AMIA) reported staggered and even definitive stoppages in five states and in a letter asked the government to guarantee electricity and industrial gas in order to maintain investments. During his conference at the National Palace, López Obrador admitted that he did not ask before to reduce consumption because he did not want to generate alarm and to avoid attacks by his opponents. “It will help a lot if we all participate and that we can, in these peak hours, lower our consumption… from 6 to 11, is what I would propose, because it will help in any circumstance. « Telling the Mexicans to help us, I did not want to do it from the beginning because we have all the pressure from our adversaries … (and) a greater...
    While the revolution promised by green hydrogen should bear fruit only in ten years, other solutions already exist to decarbonize industrial activities. This is the case with the technology developed by the startup Metron. For the past seven years, the young Parisian start-up has been offering manufacturers the opportunity to reduce their energy consumption thanks to the detailed analysis of data from their factories, and therefore mechanically, to reduce their CO2 emissions, the main culprits of global warming. Globally, industry is the third most CO2 emitting sector (behind electricity production and transport), with 18% of total emissions. In some regions, such as China, this percentage is even close to 30%, according to the latest data from the International Energy Agency (IEA). Cross data ” Our strength is to allow manufacturers to consume less energy with what already exists, that is to say without changing the machines in their factories. “, argues Vincent Sciera, CEO and founder of Metron. Its technology consists of collecting all kinds of data related to electricity and gas consumption: data from industrial controllers in particular,...
    (CBS4) — Two northern Colorado utility companies asked customers on Sunday to conserve power after impacts from a record-breaking cold air system rippled through regional suppliers down to local distributors. Platte River Power Authority and Mountain Parks Electric appealed for reduced consumption of both electricity and natural gas early Sunday afternoon. RELATED: Weekend Avalanche Deaths In The Backcountry Bring Total To 10 Fatalities In Colorado This Season PRPA’s request is still in effect. The company supplies electricity to Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont and Estes Park. A spokesman for PRPA told CBS4 that suppliers of natural gas advised the company to eliminate the use of gas for electricity. Some of the plant’s electricity is generated by natural gas-powered turbines. “This is a standard protocol for extreme cold weather situations,” Steve Roalstad stated via email. “In our case, however, we were not getting much energy production from our wind and solar resources because of snow on the panels and icing, which led to tight electricity supplies.” (credit: Platte River Power Authority/Facebook) “The good news is that our request for conservation has led...
    Forecasts that seem quite close to the realities we live in today. But what are the factors that justify this state of affairs? How can you cope with and control your “bill” budget as much as possible despite constantly rising electricity prices? Why are electricity prices increasing in France? Four main elements explain the increase in electricity prices in France. It is : Tax increases: since January 1, 2014, the VAT applied to the price of kWh has increased from 19.6% to 20%. The TFCE (Tax on the Final Consumption of Electricity) also increased, from € 9.135 / MWh to € 9.5 / MWh. As for the CTA (Tariff Contribution of Transmission) which was 21%, it represents 27.04% of the fixed part of the TURPE (Tariff for the Use of Public Electricity Networks) since May 2013; The increase in the CSPE: the Contribution to the Public Electricity Service which is used for the development of renewable energies has increased by 36% between 2014 and 2018. Today, it represents more than 10% of bills; The increase in the transmission...
    2021 has started with an unprecedented storm which has left practically all of Spain covered in snow. After the passage of the storm Filomena, a cold wave has reached the peninsula which has put about thirty provinces on notice for temperatures that could reach -15ºC, according to the prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). The cold has triggered energy consumption in homes, which has caused the price of electricity to reach historical records like last Friday. This day electricity has marked the most expensive price in history: € 94.99 / MWh, according to data from OMIE, the Iberian electricity market operator. The cold wave has made saving energy at home more important than ever. Sandra Manrique, Communications Manager for Bulb in Spain, shares ten simple tips that will help you maintain the temperature at home, while saving on your bills and reducing your carbon emissions: 1. Do not set the temperature to the maximum: Did you know that for every degree we increase the temperature of the heating, energy...
    The Conversation Spain Snow and cold heat up Spain’s electricity market Andrey_Popov / ShutterstockIn Sesame Street, children were explained that 3 + 3 + 3 is greater than 5 + 1 + 1, since 3 + 3 + 3 = 9 and 5 + 1 + 1 = 7. However, from what is seen and heard these days in the media and on social networks, it seems that many believe that the answer is 5 + 1 + 1 since 5 is the highest number. The problem I am referring to is not exactly this but a similar one, that of calculating the electricity tariff. In the first days of January 2021, the average price of electricity in Spain was substantially higher than in the same period in 2020, but that does not mean that it will be like this at the end of the year. In fact, the vast majority of consumers pay a fixed price per kilowatt-hour, since they accept the offer of their electricity supply company and accept what is called an unregulated price.

    The Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) has warned that hiring a flat rate for electricity given the rise in the price of electricity in the last week is “a serious mistake.” In a statement, the association states that these flat rates have a high cost, which is 30% more than the best rates with a fixed price and up to 46% more than the regulated rate (PVPC). In addition, it underlines that these electricity rates are not really flat, since they always have consumption limits “difficult for the user to know”. Likewise, OCU considers that today the flat rate policy “in no way invites to promote energy efficiency”, but rather It is “an invitation to uncontrolled consumption.” For this reason, it recommends hiring traditional rates, either indexed such as the regulated rate (PVPC) or betting on a rate with a good fixed price, since it can save up to 230 euros per year for an average household.

    An environmental agency in the U.S. is warning that the recent release of Sony’s Playstation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X will yield massive increases in power consumption and, in turn, higher energy costs. In turn, the next-gen video game consoles could have a sizable negative impact on the environment over the next several years. That determination comes as a result of testing performed by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). In a blog penned by Noah Horowitz, Director of NRDC’s Center for Energy Efficiency Standards, it was revealed that the organization measured the consoles’ power consumption in a number of situations, including playing games, streaming video, as well as when they weren’t being actively used. Those tests revealed that both the PS5 and Series X use energy at a rate well in advance of that of their predecessors. When actively playing new games, the systems drew between 160 and 200-plus watts of electricity. By comparison, that’s more electricity than is typically used by a 60-inch television. It was noted that their consumption was significantly lower when playing older titles...

    Although it may be difficult at first, all we can modify our daily habits to help the environment. Small actions such as reducing water consumption or using public transport instead of the car make the world a more sustainable and cleaner place. Also, once you have adopted a greener lifestyle, you could make others aware of the importance of doing the same. If you want to save electricity, a good option is turn off electronic devices when they are not being used. Televisions, computers, printers, game consoles, and lights should be off if they are not being used at the time. In addition, whenever possible you should unplug all electronic devices, since being permanently connected to the electrical network they produce ‘phantom consumption’. That is to say, they continue to generate consumption even when they are turned off. If you add up all the devices you have plugged in at home, without a doubt you are making a significant consumption that you can see reflected at the end of the month in the electricity bill. Another...
    BILLINGS, Mont. — US energy consumption plummeted to its lowest level in more than 30 years this spring as the nation’s economy largely shut down because of the coronavirus, federal officials reported Wednesday. The drop was driven by less demand for coal that is burned for electricity and oil that’s refined into gasoline and jet fuel, the US Energy Information Administration said. The declines were in line with lower energy usage around the globe as the pandemic seized up economies. Those trends are turning around as commercial activity resumes but the impact has already been profound — including energy companies filing for bankruptcy protection and a forecasted dip in annual US and global greenhouse gas emissions. Overall US energy consumption dropped 14 percent during April compared to a year earlier, the energy administration said. That’s the lowest monthly level since 1989 and the largest decrease ever recorded in data that’s been collected since 1973. The largest drop previously seen was in December 2001, after the Sept. 11 attacks shocked the economy and a mild winter depressed electricity demand. Natural gas...
    With home confinement by Covid-19, home users have detected higher billing, impacting their finances, which have already been affected in many cases by the loss or decrease in their income. But did electricity rates go up? The rates Electricity rates have not increased beyond inflation. The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) reported in April that electricity rates for domestic consumption only have a monthly adjustment of 1.00245 percent, equivalent to annual inflation for November last year, which was 3 percent. At CFE we review the contracts that may generate detriment to the company vis-à-vis individuals, with the sole objective of fulfilling the commitment of the President @lopezobrador_: NOT to increase the cost of electricity in real terms. pic.twitter.com/69QAX6zzpj – CFEmx (@CFEmx) June 25, 2020 In addition, on April 17, the Ministry of Finance (SHCP) published an agreement to prevent residential users who were at the limit of the subsidized rate from migrating to the High Consumption Domestic Rate (DAC) during the period of health emergency due to the Covid-19. In the case of the DAC Rate, the...
    The peninsular demand for electricity has rebounded this Monday by 5.6% compared to the same day last week. It has reached levels prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis and confinement, coinciding with the entry into what the Government defines as a “new normal” throughout the national territory after the end of the state of alarm due to the health crisis. Specifically, at 10 am electricity consumption in the Iberian Peninsula it stood at 29,532 megawatts (MW), compared to 27,956 MW on June 15, according to data from the system operator. These data thus confirm the reactivation of the last weeks in electricity consumption, accompanying as progress was made in the phases of de-escalation, reports Europa Press. The demand at 10.00 It represents the highest record in that time slot since March 16, which was the Monday after the state of alarm was decreed. Thereafter, demand was strongly impacted by containment measures increasingly restrictive, especially at the end of March and in the first week of April, and, subsequently, it recovered from the hand of the de-escalation. In addition,...
