The Paris 2024 Games will leave a lasting mark on their territories. Whether they be sports infrastructure or urban development, the innovations carried by EDF will benefit the greatest number.

“Les Belvédères”, the place to be

After the Paris 2024 Games, the Athletes’ Village will become a sustainable district located on the territory of Saint-Denis, Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine and L’Ile-Saint-Denis. EDF Group, especially through its EDF ENR and Dalkia subsidiaries, is contributing to its construction designed to meet environmental and societal challenges. Construction alternating between timber and low carbon concrete. It also includes major innovations in terms of energy expenditure control and improved interior air quality. A solar auto-consumption system spread over 15 roofs will make it possible to cover an average of 20% of the electricity needs of Les Belvédères.

The Aquatic Centre one step ahead

Intended to host the Paris 2024 Games water polo, diving and synchronised swimming events, the Aquatic Centre located in Saint-Denis (Seine Saint Denis) is also the mark of its creators’ ingenuity. The main part of the structure is made from timber and the roof’s inverted vault is covered by 4,680m² of solar panels installed by EDF ENR. Enough to provide an average of 20% of the structure’s needs in electricity. Moreover, 90% of the energy used for the needs of the Aquatic centre will be renewable or recovered. Dalkia, an EDF Group subsidiary, will provide all the energy system maintenance technical operations and will ensure the commitment to energy performance.

Built at the heart of the Vaires-Torcy leisure island, the Vaires-sur-Marne nautical stadium is ultra-versatile. Equipped with Omniflots® obstacles (patented by Hydrostadium, an EDF subsidiary), its technicality level makes it world class infrastructure.

A multi-function nautical stadium

Rowing, para-rowing, canoe kayaking... the Vaires-sur-Marne (Seine-et-Marne) nautical complex that was inaugurated in 2019 adapts to the sports and levels of those practising them. Its secret? An agile water supply system designed using the expertise of an EDF Group subsidiary. Patented mobile obstacles are in particular used to vary water movements in a wild water stadium depending on the expected users (tourists, schools and competitors).
