A survey will be launched this week by the Government and Monaco’s power company SMEG that will provide more detailed information on energy consumption while at the same time help to identify possible improvements for the Principality to reach its carbon neutral objectives by 2050.

Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development, and Thomas Battaglione, Managing Director of SMEG, told the local press on Friday that 5,000 residents will receive by mail a Data+ questionnaire, along with a letter from the government and SMEG.

An online version of the questionnaire will instantly provide the individual customer, whose identity will remain anonymous, with a breakdown of his energy use.

This first phase of the project will end on July 14, and the results published early 2018, although the process will continue over several years, to include a survey of Monaco businesses.

Currently 100 companies use 56 percent of the Principality’s total electricity consumption, however, Minister Gramaglia emphasised that in terms of energy reduction everyone – both individuals and businesses – is concerned. The entire Monaco population will be gradually solicited.

Data+ is expected to lead to more intelligent use of electricity and thereby contribute to the objective of reducing carbon usage in the Principality.
