EcoWatt PACA

The Principality of Monaco joined RTE’s initiative to set up the ÉcoWatt PACA website in 2010. The site is a tool which predicts winter days on which peak electricity demand is expected to be experienced across the region between the hours of 6 pm and 8 pm, and alerts users accordingly. Through the site, it is possible to monitor the status of the electricity network in the eastern PACA region in real time, allowing individuals, businesses and communities in the region to adapt their consumption as part of an eco-citizen approach.

Travel responsibly

Some advice for eco-friendly travel

Enjoying a responsible visit to the Principality

The Principality of Monaco is an outstanding tourist destination.

Over an area of two square kilometres, the most luxurious hotels share space with Michelin-starred restaurants, high-end spas and, naturally, numerous attractive shopping centres.

While Monaco is a welcoming destination for tourists, the country is nonetheless committed to protecting the environment.

Within this in mind, the Tourist and Convention Authority’s Responsible Tourism unit has been promoting activities in this area since 2010.

The PRÉSERVER (PRESERVE) brochure presents Monaco as a destination and explains the responsible actions it is taking.

Available to download from the website in five languages, the brochure provides travellers with lots of useful information and some tips to help them adopt a more sustainable approach to travel.


Make a commitment

The National Energy Transition Pact of the Principality of Monaco allows everyone, residents, workers, businesses, institutions and associations, to contribute to the energy transition effort.
Sign up the Pact.
