The Lazer (Hautes-Alpes) solar farm is one of the first in Europe to deploy the innovating floating solar technology, and is one of the sites selected to supply renewable electricity to the Paris 2024 Games.

Electricity certified 100 % renewable

From the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee headquarters to the event sites, the electricity supplied by EDF will be 100 % renewable. Certified of French origin, its traceability is especially guaranteed using a blockchain specially designed for the energy sector.

Understanding the renewable electricity circuit

Using its folding solar panels, the mobile floating solar power station installed on the river Seine will produce electricity equivalent to the consumption of 94 Olympic and Paralympic Village apartments.

A durable legacy

1 The supplied solutions are all in line with the global decarbonisation policy initiated by EDF since the signature of the Paris Agreement. Thanks to its energy mix mainly composed of nuclear and renewable energy, EDF group is the world’s leading producer of decarbonised energy, i.e. free of direct CO2 emissions (source ENERDATA 2022 [PDF, 118ko] - English version). With 39 gCO₂/kWh at the end of September 2023, EDF Group’s carbon intensity is much lower than that of other electricity producers and is still on a downward trend.
