Combined cycle gas turbine power plants | EDF France

In addition to reducing the amount of fuel required, CCGT power plants emit only half the amount of carbon dioxide (CO 2) and one-third the amount of nitrogen oxides (NO x), and virtually eliminate emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO 2) compared with conventional fossil-fired generation resources, coal-fired plants in particular.

Fleet upgrade | EDF France

Unlike conventional solar power plants, thermodynamic concentrated solar power plants have thermal inertia that limits intermittence. They can be connected to thermal storage systems lasting several hours and thus continue to operate when no sunlight is available, making generation forecasts more reliable .

Environmental indicators | EDF France

The sharp decrease in conventional waste in 2018 is due mainly to non- hazardous waste produced by projects finalised in France in 2017: reinforcement of safety standards in nuclear power plants by the ASN; refurbishment of the Group's Property Division assets. Of subsidiaries in France, Dalkia posted a 22 % increase in waste due to higher digestate production in biogas plants .
