Strategic fields for the energy and digital transition
The Cap 2030 strategy reflects the EDF Group’s aim of being an efficient and responsible electricity company that champions low-carbon growth. To rise to this challenge, we are investing in four strategic areas:
SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT
Smart cities, zero-emission mobility, sustainable construction, lighting, air and water quality, etc.
Smart homes, energy conversion and optimisation, home assistance for older people, etc.
Decentralised system integration, off-grid and nano-grid distributed generation, storage, etc.
Predictive maintenance and malfunction detection, improving industrial processes, nuclear decommissioning, etc.
News about our projects
EDF Pulse Expansion and Hynamics develop low-carbon hydrogen
Electric Mobility PlanHydrogen is a key resource for some industrial sectors, and a great opportunity for transport. Today, it is mainly produced for fossil fuels, generating 10 kg of CO₂ for each kilogram of hydrogen produced. Hynamics, an EDF subsidiary incubated at EDF Pulse Expansion, develops a hydrogen without CO₂ emission, thanks to the electrolysis of water.
At the occasion of the Eurelectric Summit, the BBC produced a short film that explains Hynamic’s strategy for industry and heavy mobility, as well as EDF Pulse Expansion’s strategy to work for the energy transition with startups.
The new startup Dreev develops V2G solutions for electric vehicles
A joint venture of EDF Pulse Expansion and Nuuve, Dreev contributes to the Electric Mobility Plan by developing smart charging solutions. Its vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology makes it possible to use the storage capacity of an electric car when idle. It allows customers to reduce their charging costs, and it is a smart grid solution to better integrate renewable energies. This inspiring startup is already at work and more charging points are to come..
Hynamics: low carbon hydrogen for the industry and the mobility sector
Most of today’s hydrogen production is carbon intensive: 95% of the total production uses fossil fuels. Using the electrolysis of water technique, Hynamics sells a zero emission hydrogen made with low carbon electricity.
An intrapreneurial project supported by EDF Pulse Expansion, this new subsidiary addresses the industry, for which hydrogen is a much used resource, and the mobility sector, to decarbonize it.
EDF Pulse Expansion invests in Zenpark, the shared parking startup
In big cities, finding a place to park your car can be arduous. The app developed by Zenpark is a practical and economical solution that turns private parkings into shared parkings. On January 29, 2019, EDF Pulse Expansion invested in this startup jointly with RATP Capital Innovation. This investment is in line with the Electric Mobility Plan announced by the EDF Group in October 2018, and contributes to making cities more livable.
Perfesco subsidiary of the EDF group that finances energy-efficient installations
Perfesco offers to build and finance energy-efficient installations for its customers, and earns a return on the energy saved. Air France is a major client of the Group and benefits from this startup’s services. For example, the lighting in one of the company’s warehouses has been refurbished and replaced by a smart solution which is over 80% more energy efficient.
