La distribution d’énergie est de compétence communale depuis 1906.
The distribution of electricity and gas is, in many places, a shared responsibility.
Local authorities, as the organising authorities, have a duty to plan the development of networks so that energy resources complement each other better, to oversee concessions to ensure quality of service for users at the best price, and to create the right conditions for the establishment of intelligent networks and smart grids.
In this sector, Espelia deploys its full operational expertise. More specifically, the firm supports local authorities in:
- drafting and negotiating gas and electricity distribution contracts
- modernising concession contracts by establishing a set of obligations and incorporating performance indicators
- monitoring and/or auditing the asset ownership, technical, accounting and financial aspects of the annual reports of the operators
