Advertising in train stations and airports will not escape the energy sobriety effort. Guest on France Inter, Sunday September 11, Clément Beaune assured that these sites will be affected by the restrictions on illuminated advertisements. “Illuminated displays in stations and airports must be turned off “, announced the Minister Delegate for Transport.
According to information from the “Figaro”, a decree will force airports and train stations to cut their illuminated advertisements “when there will be tensions on the electrical system, when the Ecowatt will be red “.
This information device created by RTE, the manager of the electricity transmission network, aims to encourage households to postpone their consumption, in order to avoid tensions or even interruptions. When it reaches the red level, it means the power consumption is in a very tight situation.

A sobriety plan soon to be unveiled

At the end of August, before Medef entrepreneurs, Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne called for mobilization, inviting them to carry out “chosen energy savings” to avoid “cuts suffered this winter”.
The French government has set itself the goal of reducing French energy consumption by 10% by 2024.
