Since 2018, France’s main Distribution System Operator (DSO) Enedis runs, maintains and operates a data hub, supporting eligible parties and customers with structured data access. Enedis are featuring a portal and a REST-based API utilizing OAuth authentication and authorisation. Authorization to share data is given on an application basis, meaning that consumers do not give their consent use-case by use case, but they rather unlock their data based on catalogues. Eligible parties create “applications” during an onboarding process and can then request access to the following data:
- Contractual Data (Données contractuelles)
- Identity (Identité)
- Daily Production (Production quotidienne)
- Daily Maximum Consumption (Puissance maximum de consommation quotidienne)
- Half-hourly Consumption (Consommation par demi-heure)
- Address data (Adresse)
- Daily Consumption (Consommation quotidienne)
- Contact Information (Données de contact)
- Half-hourly Production (Production par demi-heure)
Basically, an application redirects the user to an Enedis page requesting the list of needed privilieges. Once the user accepts the privileges, the user is redirected back to a website of the eligible party’s choice.
If you simply want to download your meter data, you can do this via logging in with your customer account at Enedis’s portal. Metering market is covered by Enedis for the whole of France. Therefore, data-access infrastructures list quite simply:
