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
100% French cloud & blockchain, Exaion the new digital startup!
13%, this is the estimated activity of data centers on the world electricity consumption in 2030. If we want to benefit from the opportunities offered by digital technology, solutions to reduce its carbon footprint are essential. Exaion, the new startup incubated by EDF Pulse Expansion, provides supercomputing in the cloud, a blockchain provide (BaaS) and data center hosting with an eco-responsible approach.
Mybus puts your bus ticket on your smartphone and informs you on the way
Already available in multiple towns in France, Mybus develops an app useful to users in two ways. First, it allows users to pay their transport fees with their smartphones thanks to a QR code. Second, it gives them real-time information on their itinerary. In July, EDF Pulse Expansion invested in this promising startup, thus reaffirming its commitment in the sustainable land management.
The acquisition of e2m strengthens EDF’s position in the field of local energy management
Energy aggregation allows to balance demand and supply on the grid. Increasing renewable energy production makes local energy management a key expertise for the energy transition. Already developing its competence in the aggregation field with its subsidiary Agregio, the EDF group strengthen its position with the acquisition of e2m, one of German’ys top players in this market, via the investment fund EDF Pulse Expansion.
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.
