Access raw or validated data for each of your meters, in near-real time, intradaily, or from the following day.

Included in your metering fee.
+ Identify the data from your meters to optimise your workflows.

The service

You have access to four data injection and extraction cases for each meter: active power extracted (T1), reactive power extracted (T2), reactive power injected (T3) and active power injected (T4).

The returned data are raw (as recorded in the meter) or validated (erroneous or unavailable data are processed).


Accessing your raw data

Accessing your raw data in near-real time (IP metering*)

You have 2 means of access:

  • Your data retrieved at 10-minutes intervals can be consulted via the Services Portal,
  • Your data can be automatically retrieved via an application connecting to our application programming interface (API) available on the Data Portal, and then displayed on your programmed channels (e.g. a website, an application, etc.). Your data are retrieved at 1-minute or 10-minute intervals.

Retrieve all your raw data on D+1 (IP metering*)

In order to complete data which have not been collected in near-real time, you can retrieve via API the whole of your raw metering data on D+1 starting at 6:00am in 1-minute period.

Read your raw data remotely on an intraday basis (via PSTN metering*)

You can read your raw data remotely by your own means, outside the time slots reserved for RTE’s exclusive use. Your data are returned every 10 minutes.


Access your validated data the following day (IP or PSTN* metering)

Your data are returned every 10 minutes. You have four means of access, depending on your preferences :

  • your data can be consulted via the Services Portal,
  • your data can be automatically retrieved via our application programming interface (API), available on the Data Portal.


To be eligible for these services, you must :

  • have either a CART contract or a detailed data service contract, or data transmission authorisation from the rights holder on the data,
  • be able to access RTE’s information system (IS).

Remote meter reading requires the purchase of specific software from a meter supplier or a specialised company. Customers can remotely retrieve their data by maintaining a telephone line utilisation rate of less than 20%, as long as they never read the meter remotely between midnight and 6 am.

* Data stored by the meters are read remotely via a telecommunications network. The interface technology may be either via PSTN (the public switched telephone network: where your meter is connected to a telephone switch by a pair of wires via the local loop); or via IP (Internet Protocol : your meter is digitised and uses a computer network communication protocol).
