Equivalent outage time


Equivalent outage time (temps de coupure équivalent – TCE) is one of the indicators used to measure the quality of the electricity RTE supplies. In 2018, equivalent outage time was 2 min 59 sec, excluding exceptional events. This result was in line with the average of the past ten years, albeit above the 2 min 48 sec limit set forth in the incentive regulation.

Outage frequency


Outage frequency has been factored into the incentive regulation set by the CRE since 2013 to encourage continuity of supply. In 2018, outage frequency was 0.42 outage/site, excluding exceptional events. This was within the 0.46 limit set forth in the incentive regulation and below the average for the past ten years.
